Add to Beirut's charm

We were not able to travel by boat to Pigeons Rock as the wind was too strong, but saw it from the Corniche. Adds to Beirut's charm and nice to see.

If you think the view of the rocks from the road, close to the barrier is great ... you are half right. Why not cross over the barrier. Go to the left of the rocks on the land. Mind your step and watch for the garbage. But the view from there is different and greater in beauty. Specially at sunset.

The rocks are truly worth the time and effort. We walked down a little cliff to get a better view of the complexity of the rocks and their shape. You will see every sort of couple, young and old, just enjoying the natural beauty.

Pigeon Rock in Raouche is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Beirut, especially at sunset. The view is breathtaking. One the best places to sit is at The Bayrock Cafe so you can enjoy the sights and have a refreshment or two. The only thing that is disappointing is the fact that the water around Pigeon Rock...

This is a beautiful scene on the Corniche. Persistent boat owners trying to sell you on a boat ride can be annoying, but it's still worth the visit.

This place is a bit out of the way, but is definitely worth going to. We went at sunset and the view was excellent.

The Pigeon Rocks itself is impressive, together with the view of the ocean and the relaxed atmosphere this is a very nice place to visit. Just look at the view from the viewpoint at the street or sit down and have a drink at one of the restaurants overlooking the rocks.
