Located on the coast 71km north of Beirut and 15km south of Tripoli, the town of Enfe is situated on an elongated peninsula measuring 400m long and with a maximum width of 120m. It is partially separated from the land by two great trenches dug into the bedrock during the Crusader period. This lovely, seaside fishing town is known for its ancient churches and caves. Today Enfe is also known for its salt production.
Surveys conducted in the region of Enfe have uncovered prehistoric stone tools dating back to the Middle Paleolithic era (100,000-35,000 B.C.). However, no evidence has been found to indicate the presence of an actual human settlement in the region dating to the Neolithic period.
