“Scenic and unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

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

“Iconic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

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.

“worth seeing on a sunny day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

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.

“Pigeon rocks - attraction in Beirut”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

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 of attractions you should visit as it is basically in town.
