This place is the best attraction in my opinion in Beirut. The rocks are amazing and the fishermen offering tours on their boats to the rocks are nice as well impolite of their steep initial prices. Me and my wife paid 20 dollars for our ride and even told him that he shouldn't go fast since my wife was a... More

This is one of the landmarks of Beirut. I wouldn't have left Lebanon before taking a picture of the Raoche. For me as many others the Raouche resembles Beirut. I have enjoyed looking at. If you have time walking on the Cornish and looking at the Rauche is an amazing experience and while enjoying a hot cup of coffee is... More

It's called raouché in Arabic. You should not miss this amazing natural wonder. If you have time take a small boat tour around it, you'll have beautiful pictures.

It doesn't matter if you view the Pigeon Rocks in the morning noon time or in the evening. Each time of day they are fantastic to view!! In the summer you can take a small boat to go through the rocks and visit the numerous caves. Lat week I was in Beirut and looking at the Pigeon Rocks from an... More

Its a nice rock to look at especially at sunset. You can take a little boat ride around it and through its arch.

ancient and impressive, a relic from the volcanic past. superb views in a well run area,make this a pleasant rest area between visits .. lovely to walk to because the stunning Marine Parade is almost totally flat for the whole length of Beirut. lovely restaurant has the prime position and a juice or coffee here is made in heaven

Well, it's a must see! we were walking on Beirut Corniche and a man who owns a little wooden boat offered us a tour in the sea and we went between the Raouche Rocks.. this was definitely one of the highlights I'll always remember, as much I was excited with the trip, I was scared I'll fly off the boat,...

Not so pretty at the moment. The rocks are the same but this corner of Beirut is in need of re-development. Still as safe as houses.
