In the far northwestern tip of Israel’s Western Galilee region, along the Mediterranean coastline, visitors will encounter the jagged white cliffs and clear turquoise waters of Rosh Hanikra.
Long a favorite among tourists, Rosh Hanikra’s most notable features are the network of caves and grottoes carved into its white cliffs battered for centuries by the sea’s powerful waves.
Visitors can explore this geological spectacle, starting with stunning views of the grottoes from the site’s 230-foot cable car ride down the cliff face. In the heart of the cliff is a walking path which leads directly to the grottoes. Visitors are also treated to an audiovisual presentation which details the site’s history and its local flora and fauna. There is also a restaurant at the top of the cliffs which overlooks the sea.
Rosh Hanikra is accessible year-round and is conveniently located to other sites in the region, including the ancient port city of Akko, as well as the city of Haifa.
