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.

Pigeon rocks is one of the best places in Beirut in my opinion, you can relax here on the sunny terrace of one of the restaurants with a beautiful view to the rocks.

I crowded street has a wide side-walk with some restaurants, the side walk is nice for running and out side sports, the side walk is higher than the shore, and if you took a look at the shore you will see between the rocks plastic bags, Pepsi and drinks cans and what ever products you've just saw in the supermarket....

It is something you have to do while in Beirut, visiting the famous Pigeon Rocks in Raouche and have a dinner at one of the restaurants close by.

Hang out at the Petit Cafe and watch the sunset. The cafe has a sheer drop to the rocks below. I went in there for a small coffee and ended up having a small dinner and enjoying the lovely views.

"iconic postcard" from Beirut - you can walk up there and take that one photo (there are also people offering a boat trip, but our friend told us that it is not really worth it,so we skipped). across the road from the rocks there is a nice ice-cream parour and a place with good traditional sweets.

It's nice to see the pigeon rocks one of the many landmarks in Beirut city. At sunset time you can have some stunning photos of these rocks and the sea. The surrounding area is also nice for a stroll with many restaurants and cafes around
