Dbayeh (Arabic: ضبية‎) is a city in Lebanon located on the Mediterranean Sea in the Matn District, Mount Lebanon, between Beirut and Jounieh. The majority of the population is Christian, apart from some Gulf Arab Muslims who live there during the summer season.

The city recently became a hub for shopping and entertainment with its numerous shopping malls, restaurants and cinemas as well as a leisure port and a residential waterfront project.

Dbayeh refugee camp was established in 1952 for Christian refugees from Bassa and Kafr Berem.
