There is not only a beautiful view to the sea but to the city too (actually even more impressive). We spent there quite a while watching local swimmers (and... More

The pigeon rocks are beautiful, and even though I travelled alone, I could see this being a romantic spot. If traveling alone, you can take this in on your way to an attraction you intend to spend more time at (for example, you are heading out of Beirut that day and are in the car anyways so you might as...

The walk along the corniche as well as the views over the Raouche rocks are stunning and it's a great exercise . On weekends it can get crowded.

Rocks are beautiful though there is lots of rubbish lying around and floating in the water... Sad... You can also take a boat and go around rocks or have a bite with a nice view at nearby restaurants.

It's just nice to walk by raouché around sunset and watch the rock just majestically standing there, you could grab a good cold beverage or sit in a cafe and enjoy the scenery..

Pigeon Rocks commonly known as Raouche (taken from French Rocher which means Rock) is a giant rock or 2 in the water which is inaccessible without permission but u still can take a boat tour around it and enjoy the beautiful views over that area of...
