“Stunning.”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

This is one of the most beautiful corniches. Pigeon rocks are stunning, but the coast line goes for miles with so many people all walking, running and enjoying the sights.

“Walking the Corniche”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I walked the Corniche with my son from Rouche Rocks to the Souks. My first time seeing the Mediterranean Sea I was a bit shocked by all the litter on the shoreline.

“A little bit of everything.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Walking around the The Corniche is something interesting. First you will be amazed by the beautiful scenery of the city and the Mediterranean sea, and then you will realize the melting pot of the society present on the street. You will encounter people from different backgrounds, different classes, all walking past each other and checking out each other. It's the backyard of the fishermen, the track for the runners, and the love spot for the couples. Gotta check it out if you ever pass by Beirut :)

“See and be seen”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

I have been on (only) two occasions to the Corniche and that was more then enough. On Sunday it is quite busy there and that is OK, but then it's like a gay parade. But not nice.
The Corniche is also not "inviting". No nice shops, terraces or a place to sit.
There are some coffee shops/restaurants on the other site of the boulevard but then you have to cross a 6 lane street where all the "Johnny's driving up and down to show their very loud radio's.
Only at the end at the marina is it OK.
For the rest, nothing appealing for me
