“A must visit place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

You can't visit Lebanon without checking on that Pigeon Rocks in Raouche (also known as the Raouché Rock). This is one of the lebanese natural icons. The bay of Rachoue is very crowded during the day and the night. A large choice of restaurants is available especially lebanese one.

“Pigeon Rocks Rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We sat at a cafe overlooking the archway of Pigeon Rocks, a natural rock formation. You see them from the air as you come in to land. Small but impressive work of nature.

“Energy”

So much energy. Beautiful buildings. The rocks are so interesting to see. Walked around had an enjoyable afternoon. Great ice cream shop across from the rocks.

“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I think it maybe is unfair that the rocks are given subpar ratings here on TA - they're absolutely spectacular in themselves.
However, you must be mindful of the men that want to take you on boat rides or pay to take your picture. If you're not interested in their services, they go away without too much persuasion. Firmly decline and then move on.

If you are interested, there are a few cafes along the bluff that offer a splendid view of the rocks. The food is overpriced, but you pay for the view.
If you just go to walk over there, there is a free viewing platform near the highway (and you can't beat free!) that provides a great view and photo opportunity.

“Photo with Raouche rock”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The rock is visible from the street and you can take a lot of photos from different angles also you can go for a cruise with small boat to enjoy the view.
