Dalieh is a natural area right next to Raouche. It's a short hike from the sidewalk down towards the sea.

In recent years, Dalieh was closed and fenced for real estate purposes. Activists worked hard to stop destroying Dalieh and tore the fence down.
The far end of Dalieh delicately merges into the sea.
