The Raouche Peninsula, located just south of the Pigeon Rocks, is definitely worth a visit. Together with Ramlet el-Bayda, the public beach in Beirut, it is the only natural place on Beirut’s coastline. Its inhabitants were mainly fishermen living in wooden or stone houses, yet nowadays most of them have left. With its natural harbors and cliffs, it is a romantic place and perfect for an afternoon stroll or a drink or lunch at one of the improvised cliff side restaurants. To enter the peninsula, walk down the sandy road starting just before the Mövenpick hotel on the right.
