The small nation of Lebanon is renowned for its beautiful environment and tourist attractions. To begin with, there are numerous locations to visit in the capital city of Beirut, but Raouche Rock is the favorite among both residents and tourists. On the Mediterranean Sea, it seems like a huge sentinel.
Raouche Rock is more than just two distinct rocks in the Mediterranean Sea; it conceals information that both residents and tourists need to be aware of. Raouche Rock is also known as Pigeon Rock.
The word rocher in French is the source of the name (Rock in English).
Offshore, Raouche Rock has a height of 60 meters and a width of 25 meters.
It may be found in the center of Beirut's seafront.
A 10-kilometer-long Cornish island called Manara is adjacent to it.
Natural landmark Raouche Rock was created as a result of a significant earthquake that struck the region in the 13th century.
The 10-kilometer-long, palm-lined al-Manara Corniche, which is the seaside promenade bearing the lighthouse's name, extends from Ain al-Mreisse beyond Raouche. It is a popular gathering place, especially in the late afternoon and early evening, when joggers, cyclists, and kids play on the wide pavement.
Small sellers offer coffee, tea, and snacks such as nuts, maize, and 'ka-ik,' a common circular bread in Lebanon. Leaning on the balustrade and listening to the waves while viewing the sunset is a popular activity along the Corniche. Summer days see a lot of swimming and tanning on the rocks.
