My friends and I walked along the promenade from downtown Beirut for what seemed to be a life time! We got to the rocks in Raouche at around 4pm and sat in one of the cafes enjoying a coffee before the sun went down. This was by far my favourite part of our trip. It was absolutely beautiful. If you... More

I live in Beirut so I see the Pigeon Rocks on a daily basis in my commute and I got used to their splendor. If you're visiting Beirut for the first time, they're a must see. I particularly like them at sunrise and sunset. You can take a small boat tour and pass under the rocks.

Just an average corniche walk. Nothing too famous. Although real-estate is very expensive there, and the surrounding hotels, and some of the cafés are nice.

I traveled to Beirut a while back, probably in 2012 and I feel obliged to write this review because I enjoyed my time there despite the tight schedule. I had work all day long and took advantage of my free time before 9 to see Beirut. I rented a bike and cycled along the coast all the way to Rouche.... More

This famous Lebanese landmark is well worth the effort to see. Sitting in a small inlet these two rocks are picture perfect and are rather impressive. The viewing area is well maintained and offers a number of opportunities for some great photos. There is also a number of eating options in the area. Word of warning you will be accosted... More

Raouche area in Beirut is famous for its Pigeon Rocks. The view is fantastic and renders peace of mind. If you feel like a walk this is the place to be. It is enjoyable to walk by amongst many or to sit at the banks available for all pedestrians facing the sea. Cafes and restaurants with a sea view are... More

I had seen them in a review on youtube and I thought I'd love to see them in real life. They are very beautiful and picturesque.

You can't be in Beirut without having seen the pigeon rocks and to take a tipical touristic pic! I haven't done a boat trip to see them closer yet, cause I am not sure about it.
