Lebanon: Beirut – Another Sunset at Pigeon Rocks

An upscale and elite neighborhood in Beirut, Raouche faces the waterfront corniche and a view of Pigeon Rocks – several seastacks with arches just offshore below the vertical cliffs. You can sit in a cafe and sip thick Turkish coffee or a fruity drink while enjoying the sunset. The rocks are actually remains of a sea monster that according to the legend turned to stone when Perseus used Medusa’s head while saving Andromeda.
