Rosh ha-Niqra, Israel

(140+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation
Burrow beneath sparkling grottos above turquoise pools at Rosh ha-Niqra, a cavernous chalk rock formation in the Mediterranean Sea. A landmark of the northwestern corner of Israel, the white cliffs rise up out of the water on the border with Lebanon, providing panoramic views of the hills of Galilee and out to sea. Ride the cable car to the grottos' shore, looking out for the remnants of the Haifa-Beirut railway left from the British invasion. Explore the 200m (656.2 ft) of naturally carved chalk caverns on foot, and keep your eyes peeled for indigenous bats and loggerhead turtles. Due to the currents, swimming in the grottos is not advised. Before you head to Kefar Rosh HaNiqra, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Kefar Rosh HaNiqra travel itinerary planner, to make sure you see all that Kefar Rosh HaNiqra has to offer, including Rosh ha-Niqra.

  • אחת המקומות עם אחד הנופים המדהימים בישראל. מפגש בין הסלעים לים יצר נקרות מהממות. טיילת יפה לאורך הים עם רכבל. אפשר להיכנס ממש לתוך הים עם נעליים ולעמוד על הסלעים. כדאי ולא לפספס. אולם חוץ מתצפית וטיול...  more »
