One of the first things I look for while on the plane back to home is the Raouche. As one of the city's great natural landmarks, the Raouche corniche and rocks attracts everyone from tourists looking to get great photo shots, to locals looking for a nice peaceful promenade. One of the really neat aspects of Raouche is that you... More

Its by far Beirut's most famous natural landmark. You can view it from Rawche corniche where you will find lots of tourists and locals hanging-out. I advice you all to take a boat tour under it (The best place to ride is from Moevenpick Hotel & Resort beirut, since its the safest place to ride the boat). A must see... More

The rock has the shape of a whale and it's located in the center of Beirut's coast and many people go there for a nice afternoon walk or just to spend the afternoon there It is a must for anyone visiting beirut, you'll probably end up there one way or the other

Emblematic. Emblematic. Did I mention emblematic? The coast of beautiful Lebanon would not be the same without the Raouche, just as Paris or New York would not be the same without the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty.

The view is great specially at sunset. Couple of cafes with direct view to the sea and the rocks. You can take a boat to go between the rocks.

Two natural rocks inside the see with an opening which you can sail through with a small boat. The best time to visit is before sunset to enjoy the wonderful sunset view in the sea.

Two huge rocks that jut out of the sea like wonky teeth. They are very high and wide. My father used to climb them as a teen and would dive down. An iconic land mark in Beirut and on the Corniche- a pleasant area to walk and people watch

I went around 6pm - about 1.5 hours before sunset and the light and scenery was amazing. A little harassed by locals to take a boat trip, but it didn't ruin the view.

Worth a see but the corniche is full of aggressive locals so not great fun, but good to feel with the locals and see the traffic...
