Great walk for sunset. Lots of people but not noisy or disruptive. Erosion at its best. Couple of pricey cafes overlooking the rocks but keep walking, you can see it for free. And buy a flower necklace of gardenias for lgb 1000.

A must-see for everyone visiting Beirut for the first time! Could be accessed for closer view from the corniche (main road) through, sadly, a quite dirty path! Boat tours are available too though not well organized (people would approach you and offer a boat tour)!...More

While I wouldn't go out of my way to come here, I definitely think it's worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood. Go down to the rocks where you will find people offering boat rides and you can even cliff dive with the...More

I was little disappointed, as I did not find the rocks as impressive or spectacular as I imagined from the pictures. The best views would be from the many restaurants & cafes lining the view.

Once you are in Beirut center, take any taxi and ask to be driven there. From any point of central Beirut, it's around 20 minutes by taxi. Should not cost more than $10.
