At the northern end of the coastal plain, a breathtaking nature reserve, with a unique geological structure located just above the sea!
We mean, of course, Rosh Hanikra – the most beautiful natural gem in the Western Galilee as well as a day trip that you will not regret.
The famous and impressive cliff, at an altitude of about 300 meters, hides a variety of natural treasures – spectacular beaches, unique rocks of various kinds, diverse vegetation, caves, crevices, and many surprises – which only nature at its best can offer!
Do not forget to take pictures! And a lot!
Rosh Hanikra is infinite beauty. Apart from the beautiful pictures that you will take and keep as a souvenir, the visit to the site is delightful – and the experience, as is well known, is always no less critical.
Cavities are caves or marine caves formed as a result of a geological phenomenon. It is a process of hundreds if not thousands of years, beginning with an underwater shock that created cracks in the rocks. The rainwater seeping in, the saltwater and even living things and vegetation are slowly destroying the various rock layers, the waves at their peak continue to be destroyed afterward. Although it is right to define the process as destruction, there is no doubt that its result, the rocks in their new form – the tunnels, are spectacular in beauty.
As you probably understand, the caves are the main attraction in Rosh Hanikra, which can be reached by cable car, in a breathtaking view – which lasts only about 2 minutes. The natural cave route is about 200 meters long, where you will get to see nature and feel its high power.
