A fantastic geological formation carved into a cliff that holds the Israel-Lebanon border faces the Mediterranean Sea’s tranquil blue waters. No wonder Rosh Hanikra (from Hebrew: ‘Head of the Grotto’) is one of northern Israel’s most popular tour destinations. The site is mainly known for its wave-sculptured caves, with the sea’s water lashing against the rock, forming grueling sounds. A short yet exciting cable car ride descends to the caverns, where artificial trails enable exploring the site at your own pace. In the 1940s, a section of the Cairo-Istanbul railroad passed through the caves, connecting Israel to Europe by train until 1948. An audio-visual presentation reviews the site’s history, and there are also bike rentals, with which it is also possible to rent a bike and drive through the railroad tunnel and Betzet Beach.

Touring Rosh Hanikra Grottoes

The site is open year-round, every day of the week, and admission fees are charged. At the Israel-Lebanon border, it is possible to take a photo next to the sign to Beirut but not to continue :-). As compensation, the cafeteria behind the sign offers food with fantastic views of the cliffs and the sea.

A tour to Rosh Hanikra Grottoes can be combined with a day tour in the north.
