Beautiful landmark of Beirut. The best time to visit is close to sunset to get beautiful pictures. Can spend close to an hour mesmerizing the beauty of the rocks and the formation!

A very nice and impressing place. My favourite place in Beirut! From the Corniche you can go down on a small path down to the rocks. There is a lot of place to enjoy being right next to the sea. If you want, you can even make a small boat trip to the rocks.

Head there for Sunset just to watch these beautiful cliffs change colors.... Just hang out , take some pix and mind the annoying tourist hackers who want to offer you anything. Just tell them you are fine and waiting for a friend! In Lebanese its called Raouche sounds like Rawshe which comes from Le Rocher (the rock) after the French... More

It's OK to walk by on the Corniche but not that impressive. I don't know if there are any organized trips to the Rocks during the day.

Nice place in Beirut's Cornishe. There are several cafes overlooking it wher one can sit and smoke shisha or have a beer or coffee enjoying the view. There are paths to go down to water and see rocks from other sides. There are plenty of guys offering a ride around rocks on a boat. One has to bargain before getting... More

Pigeon Rock (aka Raouche Rock) is a must see in Beirut! Don't miss this beautiful rock naturally sculpted that is probably dates back to 5000BC.Plenty of restaurants found around with the Bay Rock Café that provides a nice view and sit in to this magnificient rock. Avoid getting your picture taken nor having contact with the beggars that will come... More

Nice but nothing really extraordinary. Just for a nice picture, 5minutes. From the street, you can view the pigeon rock. View is nice but best places are occupied by restaurants' terraces.

Visiting Raouche is a must for all travellers that arrive in Beirut. The best time of the day is the sunset which takes place exactly in front of the spectator when admiring the rocks. There are a lot of cafes nearby to have a cup of coffe or dinner. The rocks stay lightened by night.
