Pigeon Rocks (Rausche Rocks)
Lebanon, Beirut

The main natural attraction of Beirut is the Pigeon Rocks (Raushe Rocks) located in the western part of the capital of Lebanon, in the Raushe district, on the Mediterranean coast. Two large cliffs near the shore attract photographers, lovers and tourists. Near the cliffs there are several small bays and caves, an observation deck is equipped on the shore. One of the most popular entertainments of residents and guests of Beirut is a boat trip around the Pigeon Rocks. During a boat trip you can visit a small grotto located under the observation deck, swim through a through hole in the Pigeon Rock itself and see how the rocks look from the sea. Rocks were called pigeons, most likely because of the pigeons who had chosen these cliffs. There is a local legend according to which in ancient times unfortunate lovers rushed from these rocks into the deep sea. Nowadays, only active tourists who want to freshen up on hot days jump into the water from a boat. Near the Pigeon Rocks are hotels, restaurants and cafes.
