Interesting geological structure

Good to see if you are around the area. I wouldn't think you would have to make a special trip there unless you are interested in taking a boat trip through the arch.

The place is absolutely beautiful, especially at sunset. I loved it there but after all it's just a rock, spending there 30 minutes are more than enough.

Pretty rocks to look at and take pictures. You can even rent a boat and get up to them. There are benches to sit on and enjoy the view. Nice place to visit in the morning during your trip to Beirut.

Take a chance and follow the locals on a Sunday through the barbed wire fence and go down to join picnickers near the rocks. The views are lovely.

This is such an iconic image for Beirut that you simply must go there when you're in Beirut! While there, enjoy a walk along the beautiful corniche, the AUB campus, and the lively Hamra district.

There are many restaurants around so you can have a Lebanese dinner. The rocks are great sight but if you want more beautiful pictures you should visit during... More

You can venture into Mediterranean Ocean through a small speedboat to amaze at Pigeon Rocks, a collection of three caves along the Mediterranean Coast line or simply choose to stroll along the walking path for joggers . Be there at sunrise to enjoy nature at its best or stroll in the evening to find the pulsating spirit of Beirut ,... More
