Rosh Hanikra

The gleaming white cliffs of Rosh Hanikra and the beautiful stretch of beach below are a magnificent sight to behold. But the real excitement begins when you board the cable-car for your two-minute ride down the 210-foot cliff.

As you walk through the artificial tunnels and view caverns carved out by the pounding waves of the Mediterranean, you’ll enjoy the myriad shades of the water and the dramatic play of light and shadow it casts. The strange sounds the waves make as they rush in and out of the caves make it easy to believe the old legend that a pair of star-crossed lovers used to meet here, and the voice of the would-be bride can still be heard.

Rosh Hanikra is also the meeting point of the Israel and Lebanese border; you can see the tunnel dug here in 1943 to extend the Cairo-Haifa rail line to Beirut. A short audio-visual presentation, shown in the old tunnel itself, tells the story of the site.
Don’t miss the beautiful path that crosses the Rosh Hanikra beach and begins near entrance to the old tunnel (open on weekdays from an off-site entrance and on Saturdays from the site) and the “little train” tour.
