Beddawi, Beddaoui, (Arabic: بداوي) is a town situated at the Mediterranean Sea about 5 km north of Tripoli, Lebanon. It is a mainly Sunni Muslim Lebanese village. It had 6,012 eligible voters in the 2009 election. There are 4 primary schools and one secondary school and one soccer team. The city is surrounded by orange orchards and has two monumental buildings of the crusades. It has also a non-working petroleum refinery, out of order since the Lebanese civil war. Beddawi city should not be confused with the Beddawi Palestinian camp. Till today, Beddawi remains the main connection between the northernmost coast and the rest of Lebanon since the main coastal highway goes through the town. However, a couple of years ago, a separate highway closer to the coast started being constructed which should hopefully put less pressure and traffic on the little town.
