Pigeon Rocks in Raouche, Beirut

(3.7/5 based on 550+ 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.
