“You’ve never been to Beirut if you don’t have a photo of yourself at Pigeon Rocks.” Those were the words of a friend who offered to host me at her house. I can’t blame her. If you google Beirut or Lebanon photos, Pigeon Rocks never fail to show up. Try googling “Things to do in Beirut” and these rocks are always on the list. In fact, it’s not just the tourists go there – they’re also a hit to the locals.
The cliff that overlooks Beirut Pigeon Rocks is a popular destination for the tourists. It is also a favourite hangout for the locals where cafes littered along the streets. The sea views are a welcome respite from the busy streets of Lebanon’s capital city.
