Walking to the Pidgeon Rocks, expecting to sit with the locals during the sunset, was the worst idea by far. The sea was littered and the area around was not taken care of. Wherever you looked, plastic bottles and rubbish was thrown off the cliff and in the streets. A lot of people were targeting foreigners to beg for money,... More

It's one of the monuments you see on every Beirut postcard. The walk is quite nice and enjoyable. Make sure you go there on a Sunny day or around sunset.

It's a nice natural rock but it's not taken care of, dirt is everywhere in the water. You can take few shots and leave.

One of the first things I look for while on the plane back to home is the Raouche. As one of the city's great natural landmarks, the Raouche corniche and rocks attracts everyone from tourists looking to get great photo shots, to locals looking for a nice peaceful promenade. One of the really neat aspects of Raouche is that you... More

Its by far Beirut's most famous natural landmark. You can view it from Rawche corniche where you will find lots of tourists and locals hanging-out. I advice you all to take a boat tour under it (The best place to ride is from Moevenpick Hotel & Resort beirut, since its the safest place to ride the boat). A must see... More
