Enjoy breathtaking views, exciting cable car rides & magnificent grottos
At Israel’s northwestern tip, at the only point where the sea meets the cliffs, is where you will find the enchanting tourist site of Rosh Hanikra. The site is suitable for all ages and recommended all year round! We dusted the cliffs, colored the sea a stunning turquoise, and added new attractions that will make your visit even better.

The cable car

The cable car, which is the steepest in the world, takes visitors down for a fascinating encounter with the sea grottoes. The view from the cable car is breathtaking and that’s just the start.

The grottoes – a spectacular natural phenomenon

The walking path in the heart of the cliff exposes visitors to the grottoes, which – more simply put – are sea caves.  The grottoes were formed in the wake of underground shocks that ripped open gaps within the bedrock. Slowly, rainwater penetrated these rifts, forming tunnels and caves that continued to expand due to the waves that slammed against the rock.  

 Sound & Light Show

Visitors are treated to a simple, fascinating film describing the sea, the mountains and what they have to offer. The audiovisual display is suitable for all visitors.

Small train

Bicycle riding at Rosh Hanikra 

Enjoy a family bicycle outing along the sea promenade boasting stunning inlets and breathtaking landscapes. A cycling tour offers you the perfect blend of nature, sports and enjoyment. (Attractively priced combination tickets are available at the ticket office)

Electric cars at Rosh Hanikra

For those of you who don’t feel like burning calories on bikes, you have the option to take an easy, independent drive along the sea promenade in an electric car. On the way, you will enjoy a splendid sea landscape and catch glimpses of rock hyraxes who live in rock crevices.

It’s a real blast – don’t miss it!
