An amazing place, so special. The water has a turquoise color.
Not a long walk, but plenty of places to take beautiful pictures.

I wanted to review the kayaking Rosh HaNikra, but they don't have a listing on TripAdvisor, but we saw the grottoes via kayak, and that is an incredible way to enjoy this site. We used ראש-הנקרה ימיה - קיאקי ראש הנקרה but other operators also do the grottoes. In addition, we enjoyed the cable cars and the movie set in the blocked off train tunnel, which has its own interesting history. Aside from the extreme crowds of summer vacation (which made our visit 4 hours long instead of an hour and a half), we had a great time and enjoyed spectacular views. There is also an option to rent golf carts and go on a path along the coast, which was a great way for our daughter and son-in-law to take a relaxing ride with their 16 month old baby. If you go there on a vacation day, get there early, or else prepare to wait in the heat.

Never get enough of the grottos. Probably have been here ten times over the last forty years. Great families, great for adults.

We stopped off here for the morning on a day with intermittent rain and everyone enjoyed it. The grottoes are covered so we were dry from the rain but the sea was rough so the water was harsh within the caves. The cable car was fun and the view from the top is amazing. A lot of fun and an interesting history as it is the border.

I’d give this sight a 3.5 after six months of touring Israel. It’s a good site.

Awesome time, kids loved the short but steep cable car ride, 10 min movie in the cavern was great explanation (had in English version) and the cave walk through was very easy and well maintained. We went just after a storm so it wasn’t so clear and the water wasn’t the blue green as when it’s clear but it was still Well worth it. This isn’t worth burning precious time if you are only in Israel for a couple days but if you have additional time it’s worth it!

Believe prices were Adults (48 NIS) Kids 3-18 (25 NIS) and 0-2 Free

We did not ride the bikes, golf carts or take a guided tour and it was still nice.

This is one of the most specular things I saw on a 10-day trip in Israel, but unfortunately even those who make it to Rosh Hanikra miss this gem: there is a cable car that descends from the top of the cliff. It is a very short one, but those who are afraid of heights (about half the people who go here) are taken by surprise and end up sitting this out.

Those who are afraid of heights and can take a few deep breaths for about 1 minute should make this trip. It's worth it. If not, it's best to skip this attraction.

Rosh Hanikra is an incredible geological creation at the farthest point north on Israel’s Mediterranean Coastline, a continuous love story between the sea and the mountain.

Beautiful natural formation on the border of Israel and Lebanon. The water is crystal clear and a brilliant blue, in caverns and tunnels formed by wave and water action. The ride down to the grotto is on a funicular that is identified as the steepest in the world - it is almost vertical. On a clear day - which we were lucky to get - the coastline of Israel, the border with Lebanon, and islands that are home to bird sanctuaries are all visible.

Rosh Hanikra is in the northern corner of Israel, almost a stone's throw from the Lebanon border. The caves are surrounding cliffs are a fascinating piece of geology that are easily accessed by a very short ride down a cable car. It is arguably a very touristy place. Even with the lineup, it took us no more than about 30 minutes to get on the cable car. Mind you, our visit was at the end of October rather than in the summer. Tickets are required. The walk through the caves was very beautiful, but the geological formations outside, particularly the 'elephant' formation, was as much if not more compelling. And on a clear day, there is a beautiful vista of the entire coastline of Israel. There is a also a short movie that explains the geology of the area which we did not see. The northern part of Israel is very interesting, with many remote kibbutzes and villages.
