Perched atop a mound, meters from the shore, is a beached wooden ship that looks like it would be more at home on the high seas. However on closer inspection, the ship reveals itself to be a restaurant serving famous fish dishes from the town of Naqoura, on the southern coast of Lebanon. What is perhaps most remarkable is that the project is not the only one of its kind in the region.Safina Restaurant and Park is not a traditional restaurant.The restaurant's interior has just as much character as its exterior.
