is a Lebanese Christian town that is 20 km (12 mi) south of Beirut. The name of the town is derived from the name of the Phoenician God Damoros who symbolized immortality. Damour also remained the capital of Mount Lebanon for three centuries. Because Damour is one of the few cities of the Lebanese coast having a sand beach, and since it is ten minutes from Beirut, Damour attracts tourists and especially water sports enthusiasts. Thus, several restaurants, coffees and snacks are located along the beach. There are also a few restaurants at the edges of the Damour river.
