4.6/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
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.

  • הנוף הכי מדהים ובמיוחד בשקיעה. הנקודה הכי צפונית בגליל במערבי. קרוב לחוף אכזיב וקרוב למסעדת בנחלה שבנהריה 
  • One of my favorite spots in Israel that always inspired me and made me love the landscape, so peaceful, unique and on the border of Israel - just the edges of the land I love so much! The most beautif...  read more »
  • It is a really interesting place, and if you just look around, if you have and focus in what you see, it really was amazing. So, in order. The place itself a landmark, because it is a place of contact State of Israel and not very friendly. Moreover-this is the adjoining area controls, unofficially, even less friendly to Israel, Hezbollah. For those who do not, said nothing and bother, this is not the place for political lesson. literacy, and someone who understands that everyone understood. How to get tourists in cars and so good, but without a car is less convenient, but not impossible. From the town of Nahariya, can be reached by public transport, taxi or bus type. And then a little walk quite a bit, no problem at all. And all of you on the spot. And then watch and soak up. The first is sea view-point high and you can see very far. And everything nice. You can explore as sea landscapes, so the coastal strip is impressive. There is the funicular, which lay down and lift. There is a restaurant and he is the only one with all the consequences. Fed, watered and views of the sea, and take over it all, and not a little tug, because, as I said above, the monopolists. Not a million, but not cheap for the most usual dishes. You can draw near and sfotkat′sâ against the background of the transition on the Lebanese side. But if you say that there immediately Lebanese contractors, this craftiness, there's still a buffer zone controlled by UN international force. There are caves inside rocks-there nicely, but the humidity just overwhelming, it's rather important to the owners of photo and video equipment, since at least may cloud over lens, or much worse, humidity gets inside. There are balcony gallery and with it too look beautiful. You can go down to the sea, and see the Rocky hyraxes, or as they are called here-stone hares. It is important to remember the main thing-they are that there are wild, but prosekli that nobody will touch a finger, and then become arrogant, to the last degree and lie on the rocks and warm bellies, and most of the time klânčat food from visitors. After exploring these guys variants. The first is to climb to the top and go to the bus stop and go back. For the enthusiast-go to the seaside city of Nahariya, it takes thirty minutes-forty, and there go too to stop, but before you go on the shores of the Mediterranean. Shoes better convenient is not pitching, of course, but we need to go. You can write a lot, but it's better to show, so helpful.
