Rosh HaNikra

The cliff of Rosh HaNikra (which could be translated as "Head of the Grotto") is a unique, exciting and exceptionally beautiful Nature Reserve. At the feet of the cliff are situated serrated grottoes and rounded alcoves which were created through the combined activity of geological processes and the effect of the waves and serve like a picture frame for the water of the Mediterranean Sea. The head of the cliff provides a magnificent observation point over the coastal area of the Western Galilee region. It is also possible to take a Cable Car and climb down the steep descent to the grottoes, with the panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea being revealed from the Cable Car windows. The ancient white cliff and the unusual grottoes serve as a resonance box for the sounds of the water and the wind. One can also take a nostalgic ride on the Rosh HaNikra Small Train, which is a tribute to the train that the British activated here during their Mandate in this country; watch the audio-visual presentation provided here which takes one on a virtual tour within the natural wonders of the grottoes; or walk around the beautiful Sea Promenade which offers many seats overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
