THINGS TO DO
border

There are plenty of things to do in Beit Douma and in the area. We would firstly recommend a lot of “do nothing activities”.

In Beit Douma, bring your books and magazines for the terrace or “taht el jawze”; grab a board game or a book from the library; watch a DVD in our library/projector room; choose your music from Deezer on our iPad; ask for a cooking class.

There are also outdoor activities, wonderful restaurants, and village activities.

Outdoor Activities

Balou’ Balaa’ is a three-leveled natural waterfall that drops a staggering 250 meters into an enormous cave of 160-million-year-old limestone that dates back to the Jurassic Period.
