To me forget about any other area to visit in Beirut except Raouche Rocks! So relaxing to view and listen to the surf below you. Only negative is the large amount of Syrian Beggars on the sidewalks. I suggest you bring a lot of change..it is so sad to view... There are boat rides around and under the rocks, but... More

Pigeon rocks are two rocks in the sea just off the coast near Beirut. One of the rocks is an arch. There are some nice viewing areas with benches and it is more fun to watch the people than look at the rocks. You can also catch a boat for a ride in the sea.

This is a rock in the middle of the bay not attached to anything. You see it from the Corniche. Where people walk, hang out and just gather. Across the street there are restaurants and Condos. I loved it there and so did my kids.

Viewing the rocks from the shore is one thing - and quite a spectacular thing at that. But take the time to negotiate a boat ride and see the rocks up-close from sea level. Sure the boats seem a little rickety, and you'll head out to sea without a life preserver, but trust your able bodied captain and you're in... More

I visited here almost everyday while I was in Beirut.These two rocks are magically beautiful night and day. The people of Beirut call it the rocks of lovers..there is a story among the locals that in the past when a man loved someone and couldn't get her, they would commit suicide from these rocks

Worth seeing day and night. This stretch of the Corniche is less interesting and more touristy. Ignore what goes on the pavement and view the two rocks. It's a beautiful sight.

This is worth a walk on a sunny day because all the tourist books refer to it. If you go, have a coffee or argileh at one of the restaurants perched on the side of the cliff overlooking the rocks.

I didn't have a chance to visit Pigeon rocks from the sea side, but even the view from the shore is great. You can take a long walk from Corniche and reach Pigeon rocks. There is number of restaurants there, and it is pretty busy, specially on weekends and sunny days. If you are in Beirut, yes, this is one... More
