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.

This is one (if not the) landmark in Beirut. It's truly beautiful but with so many people trying to rip you off with overpriced boat trips the experience becomes less exciting. The are around it should also be cleaned up to live up to the...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.
