A must-see for everyone visiting Beirut for the first time! Could be accessed for closer view from the corniche (main road) through, sadly, a quite dirty path! Boat tours are available too though not well organized (people would approach you and offer a boat tour)!...More

I was little disappointed, as I did not find the rocks as impressive or spectacular as I imagined from the pictures. The best views would be from the many restaurants & cafes lining the view.

It is a great place for an afternoon walk by the sea. The view is memorizing but only if its on ur way. Not worthy to make the trip to catch this view.

Try catch a picture at sunset! Great views, if you have a little more time - stop at the restaurant for a drink or meal.

This is a must when you visit Buirut. My only issue is that they have now planted shrubs along the walkway so your view of the Pigeon Rocks is limited to about 3 areas.

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.
