You can't be in Beirut without having seen the pigeon rocks and to take a tipical touristic pic! I haven't done a boat trip to see them closer yet, cause I am not sure about it.

Once you are in Beirut center, take any taxi and ask to be driven there. From any point of central Beirut, it's around 20 minutes by taxi. Should not cost more than $10.
