Continuing his trek around the Mediterranean Sea in the footsteps of Alexander the Great in Egypt during 2017.
What Are The Differences Between The Mediterranean Seaside In Lebanon And Israel?
The main thing The Idiot notices when he MedTreks through different countries on the Mediterranean Sea is the state of the seaside and beaches. A stroll from Syria to Gaza along the waterfront in Lebanon and Israel illustrates one notable coastal contrast that differentiates the two countries.

Israeli beaches, in contrast, look almost pristine in comparison.
Naturally security precautions are obvious on beaches in both countries.
