Pigeon Rocks in Raouche, Beirut

3.8
#2 of 26 in Parks in Lebanon
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.

    On the cornice of Rawche, place popular with business leaders, especially at the time of the sunset. Nothing really special, but essential when visiting the city of Beirut.

    we were looking forward to see these rocks, but we were not nicely surprised by so many rubbish on the way to Rocks...... Streets in town were much cleaner. Take proper shoes, very steep slope.  more »

    It is a place on the waterfront that borders the Mediterranean Sea, where are these rocks, you can see from there or take a boat that you stroll around, a place very nice, especially at the time of the sunset, what there is to go early because it fills to see this show nature... Free!
