After a long walk and a local bus ride along the Corniche, I reached Pigeon Rocks - they were very interesting rock caves formation. I was offered a little boat ride by a local guy for US$15 (he first started at US$20) where I was driven through the caves and very cool!

Everyone likes big rocks, and these ones are easily within walking distance of Hamra. I'd suggest continuing on down to the public beach, also one of the few good areas for running outside.

This place is wonderful by it's geographic position, in the center of Beirut! I used to go there to take a café from any bistrot beside (there's a lot in the region) on midnight and go for a walk on the beach in front of these rocks! Just look around you beirut with the rocks and the sea is amazing!... More

this is a No.1 place to take a "selfie" with in Lebanon, or simply just take a photo on a beautiful sunset . on the other side of the street you can find Starbucks and Second Cup . I highly recommend Second cup as the service is just perfect .

I think this is the main icon everyone should see when visiting Beirut. There are many amazing views from different angles and levels, from the corniche, from the cliff, down at the beach, and from the sea as there are boat tours that brought you at and through the rocks and caves nearby. You have different views in different times... More

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 Region surrounding the area takes its name from this Rock (Raouche).. many coffee shops & restaurants have a view over it.. or simply you can enjoy the view on one of the benches on the corniche in front of the Rock... or enjoy a walk along the beautiful corniche..
