Legendary beach club in Lebanon (I WAS SHOCKED)
Sabaho and good morning my friends and welcome back to another video here in Lebanon, and in today's video I'm here with Mabelle the one and only. Hi and I'm here with Nye. Hello. And she is partially Lebanese, partially French and uh they are actually cousins so that's how we all know each other here yeah and so guys we're going to be heading out into a very special part of Lebanon called Chekka or pronounced more formally as um Chekka. Um Chekka. Yeah.
Well if you look at it on google maps it looks like it says Chekka so up here in Chekka guys we are going to be visiting a place called Roca Marina which is like a very iconic place in Lebanon a place that i was trying to go to last summer when i visited and it just never worked out to visit so we had to make sure we made it there this summer so it's like a really beautiful i guess beach and set of pools, places to get some drinks, something to eat and a whole bunch of things so i don't know too much about it other than that but i do know that it's the place to be if you want to spend your day here in the summer in Lebanon just north of Batroun about 10-15 minutes north of the city to just have a full relaxing day so we're going to be cruising here right through the mountains as you can see we're only about uh three minutes out and we will be there. What I do know also is about uh like normally it's like 450,000 per person with a current exchange rate to get in which is like roughly 15 US dollars and then basically I don't know the prices of drinks and things like that but I'll share them with you once we get there so you guys can see so we will see you over there. All right guys so we have just arrived outside of Roca Marina and when you're arriving here as oh we got cars coming this whole area up and down here you can park and that guy over there right there just hooked it up it's about 20,000 to park which is like I guess 70 cents and then you have a guy that kind of watches over the cars here and right over here we've got Roca Marina and here it is wow look at how big of a complex it is down there guys it stretches all the way across. All right I guess we probably could have came down here and parked the valet so that looks like that's also an option and uh this is where we're gonna be going in [__] uh this way so we've got our man Muhammad, yeah [__] You're from uh Chekka? I'm from Koura. Koura, how far is that like 10 minutes? Yes very nice yeah it's beautiful up here it's my first time in this area uh exploring this part of, the famous actually that's in Lebanon yeah yeah it's uh incredibly beautiful by the beach yeah yeah I've seen the iconic clear so beautiful and is this place open what like May till uh September or later than that end of September so end of September okay very nice of [__] amazing.
All right looks like we've got some pretty large diving boards too the platforms to jump off, we got the uh beach bar vibes over here. Wow! all right guys so this is all the seating you have you have these lounge areas and we even have the VIP area up here oh yeah Mohammed's gonna be hitting this up with a spot to be and here we are this is the iconic spot right there all of those beautiful beautiful crystal clear pools right up at the top. My friends I want to make a quick stop from this video about Lebanon and share with you a very special product that me and my best friend Fouad from Lebanon are working on and it is the ultimate guide to traveling Lebanon so if you're considering coming to Lebanon you might be wondering many different things, how do you navigate the country currently. Where should you go? What should you do about the currency crisis and the different rates? And how you exchange your money? Can you use ATMs? Where should you eat? Where should you go out? All of these questions that you might have are things that fuad and i have experienced over the last 12 months and we've spent countless hours creating the ultimate guide that's going to answer all these questions and ensure you have an amazing time when you come and visit this beautiful country of lebanon so the guide is going to be available very soon but if you click on the link in the description below you'll actually be able to go ahead and put your email address down and then when the guide releases you'll get 15% off because you'll be the first people to receive it targeting to have it done by the end of this summer because we're still exploring some of the places as we continue to write this book but I can tell you our hearts and souls have been poured out into this book to curate the product for you that is going to give you the experiences that we've had the experiences that have brought me back to Lebanon six times in the last 12 months so guys definitely check it out in the link in the description below. All right we're coming up to the uh VIP spot right up top this is a vibe and it looks like this is where we're going to be posting up right here perfect thank you so much so yeah guys this is the whole VIP area we've got one-two-three-four- five different spots all right there everyone's getting lathered up in that uh sunscreen SPF 50 the sun out here in Lebanon is [__] strong so yeah this is uh what we gotta watch out for but right behind me we've got a bunch of beautiful seating i kind of like these ones quite a bit because you can actually get some of the shade and then right over here we've got a nice pool and kind of like surrounding this whole area we've got pools and like you got the ocean you can jump in and swim and so you know checking out from uh this side here here's that iconic look of all of the pools here they expand basically like all the way up and down this whole area so it's such a vibe and looks like they've even got some floating bottles right over there so yeah guys i'm excited to be here we've got about four more of us that are going to be arriving to Roca Marina by the next hour or so Fouad in the squad so once they get here we're going to go start jumping in we've got slides here, we've got diving spots, we've got areas to float, areas to uh just chill out, the bar a little bit of everything guys so let's do this. So Omar the waiter [__].
You guys know what you wanna to order? [__] So guys I'm taking a look at the menu here we've got so many um cocktail options I'm looking like for your average drink it's gonna be about 170 Lebanese pounds so that's about five or six dollars for an international cocktail we're ranging between five to six dollars up to about like seven to eight dollars if you want to get like a bottle of wine for example you'll pay between 700k to a million so that's going to cost you about 21 to let's say roughly 30 and then for like a bottle here for example gin like a gordon's bottle that's 1.5 million so that'll run you nearly uh $50. I would say and then they do have food options when you go further down lots lots of other drinks of course but um we have you know everything from shakes we got Oreo shakes, we've got iced coffees, we've got jessie's juice, lemonade super good so a bunch of options there non-alcoholic if that's what you're going for and then we even have pizza in a cone so yeah pizza cone, hot dog, fries basically all this stuff that's going to make you live a few years less but worth it in the moment and to finish off some burgers quesadillas oh baby baby I'm getting pretty hungry i don't know about you guys watching this but uh we'll be showing you some food here in just a bit. All right do you guys know what you want? Gin. Gin and basil feed nan gin and basil or play mai oh um
[__] oh we've got some fresh fruit arriving [__] look at that some fresh watermelon [__] these are the largest great is that a grape no i don't know oh what i have never seen anything like this in my life it looks like an oversized grape let's give it a taste here oh it's like a peach is that what it is I don't know what that is in English. It's very sour guys it's got a seed in the middle so it feels like it's like in the family of a peach tree maybe yeah because it's just that massive seed on the inside but a peach would be like traditionally a peach is like more like lightly furry on the outside whereas this is like smooth on the outside like a grape that's why i thought it was an oversized grape. We've got carrots we've got the kabir uh gin and basil [__] beer gin and basil special yeah made by the man the myth the legend [__] how we doing [__]guys you got it technically all the way around or you can sneak up here.
