When you visit Beirut this is a pretty iconic spot to visit. Quite nice, very busy at all hours. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes along the cliffs nearby to get something to eat so worth a visit.

It's a mini version of 12 apostles of Australia...not as spectacular but a good sight. A dirty beach front spoilt the experience.

Any visit to Beirut is not complete without seeing Raouche. The best view is from Petite Cafe while having breakfast and then hiring a small boat to take you directly to the rocks and through them.

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.
