We got our taxi driver stopped to take Beirut's landmark : Pigeon Rocks. Also the drivers and locals never say the rocks' name as Pigeon. Raouche or something like that. Only 2-5 minutes enough to take a selfie with it. That's all.

Although the place has a nice view from the top (cafes or avenue), I was really disappointed of how dirty and not mentained the rocks and area around are. Go there for sunset only and enjoy a drink in one of the tourist traps cafes...More

The Rocks are great but the best are all the coffee shops overlooking it. Best place to watch the sun set over the Mediterranean

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.

Been to Beirut a few times- these rocks always provide a soothing view in the pristine blue Mediterranean Sea. Something that stays there irrespective. An evening walk to this place is always very relaxing

If you're near hear, why not stop by the pigeon rocks in Raouché, and admire the stone formations eroded by the sea. If you're not near, I would say it's worth sitting stuck in Beirut traffic for :)

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.

What is there to say about pigeon rock? This is a can't miss destination if you are in Beirut. It's like going to London and not seeing the tower bridge. I really look forward to seeing if I could charter a boat so we can...More

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.
