Beirut Downtown: Martyr’s square in downtown holds a monument to the Martyrs of the Civil War, when the country was wracked by sectarian fighting and external interference. The statue, which is of a young man and woman reaching for the sky, provides a good backdrop for pictures.
Corniche: Located just off the western end of the Corniche are several natural rock structures/ arch known as Pigeon Rocks. You can also take a boat ride around the rock formations and apparently through some caves.
National Museum: The story of the National Museum started in 1919 with a small group of ancient artifacts, which had been collected by Raymond Weill, a French officer stationed in Lebanon. These objects were displayed in one of the rooms of the German Deaconesses building in Georges Picot Street in Beirut. This exhibition hall served as a temporary museum.
