Tyre Coast Nature Reserve (TCNR) is located immediately south of Tyre city, South of Lebanon. TCNR is recognized as the most beautiful and largest sandy public beach in Lebanon. TCNR was created in 1998 by Law No. 708, and it is considered rare of its kind in Lebanon and subsequently has a great natural heritage value.
Its biodiversity derives from several elements that are grouped in a small terrestrial area of 3.8 km². TCNR also has a marine zone with a surface area (territorial waters) of about 113 km². It is characterized by the diversity of its ecological, marine and coastal ecosystems.  In addition, it is an important nesting site for migratory birds and the threatened sea turtles, within a diversity of ecosystems comprising a wide variety of flora and fauna species. The lands constituting the reserve, amount to an area of 380 ha divided into three zones: 
Touristic zone, Agricultural & Archaeological zone, and Conservation zone. The natural reserve contains fresh water estuaries and springs that outflow to the sea, thus creating a fresh/marine water interface, or 
Estuary. Both visitors and scientists recognize it as one of the most beautiful and scenic beaches in Lebanon, with the widest biodiversity.

The broader good objective of Tyre Coast Nature Reserve is the conservation of ecosystems,
The application of ecosystem-based management approach for the conservation of ecosystem and biodiversity,
The application of ICZM (Integrated Coastal Zone Management) and local development.
