Nice rocks

It's pretty much nothing but rocks in the sea. The view is very nice. You can have great souvenir pictures from there.

This was a nice 30 minute boat ride around pigeon rock and a couple of caves. Be careful with the people offering the boat trips that they don't overcharge. Our tour guide was a local and was able to help us get a good deal. I would recommend.

one of Lebanon's most famous attractions . the view is amazing , restaurants around it are an excellent idea to have lunch,dinner or just drinks on a patio over looking the Rock.

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 .

you cannot visit Beirut without taking some pictures with the Pigeon , its a huge rock in the sea shaped like a natural tunnel for ships
