Travel Photo of the Week — Pigeon`s Rock, Beirut, Lebanon

Posted by - June 30, 2011 | Category: Escapes, Lebanon, Middle East

Also known as the Rock of Raouché, the Pigeon`s Rock in Beirut, Lebanon is a stellar destination for locals and tourists alike.  This photo was taken from the popular seaside walkway called the Corniche.  With so many folks on cell phones and roller blades, the Corniche reminded me more of Miami than the Middle East.  To give you an idea of the scale of these rock formations, you can just see the outline of some of the more daring sightseers on the peninsula to the left of the photo.

    1. I was surprised that there were not too many folks swimming, but of course, wherever there is water I have to take a dip — it was great just like the beach further down the Corniche…

  1. It’s a shame that most of the images we here in the U.S. have of Beirut are bombed out buildings when there’s actually such beauty there.

  2. What a cool pics. I am fond of this. I am getting lots of useful information from here. Thanks for this great work.
