Pigeon Rocks in Raouche, Beirut
(3.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
A Beirut landmark adorning the former 10-pound banknote, Pigeon Rocks in Raouche stand in a bay like giant sentinels. Today, these curious offshore limestone arches are the focal point of a popular hangout spot. A leisurely stroll along the promenade will take you straight to the rocks, which you can observe from a cliff. You can also descend the cliffs for a view from the sea, exploring inlets and caves in the cliff. Cliffside cafes overlooking the bay and restaurants in the area attract tourists and locals alike, while small boat rides bring you around the rocks during summer. Plan to visit Pigeon Rocks in Raouche and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Beirut attractions using our Beirut vacation trip planner.

  • A popular photographic motif and a must on a visit to Beirut. It is quite amazing what all ready brings the nature.

  • I went to the cafe which overlooks the rocks and I was in awe... they are even more impressive in person. Must see! Very peaceful to sit and eat and smoke hookah while looking out at this sight. 
  • When I arrived i walk to this place. Nice view of the rock from a viewing platform over the coast on the pedestrian promenade. There was quiet and not crowded. I recommend merge with walk on Hamra Street.
