the cliff

this is the white chalk cliff that houses the grottoes or sea caves at rosh hanikra in the western galillee where the mediterranean sea meets the israeli coast at the lebanese border. if one follows the normal flow of pedestrian traffic through the tunnels, this views is towards the end of the attraction. thankfully, there was some nice light towards the end of day as the sun was beginning to settle into the horizon.

cavern walls

still in the tunnels of the grottoes at rosh hanikra, here is a view from one of the openings in one of those tunnels that give way to cavern walls and a southern horizon’s view at sundown.

a hole in the grotto wall

literally translated, rosh hanikra means the head of the grottoes. while in the north of israel, one must not miss the beauty of rosh hanikra’s cliffs and grottoes. driving the number 4 coastal road north to its end will bring you right to the lebanese border where the sea meets the cliffs at rosh hanikra. once within the attraction, you take a cable car ride (apparently one of the steepest, if not the steepest in the world) down to the grottoes. cavernous tunnels greet you with a number of lookout points along the way.
