Everyone has a different threshold for waiting in lines, but we went to rosh hanikra during Pesach and it really was not bad. We got there at around 2 and waited about 35 minutes for the cable car on the way down. On the way back up we waited another 30 minutes or so. It was soooooo worth it. Kids ages 1-12.
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!
So what’s new at the site? We dusted the cliffs, colored the sea a stunning turquoise, and added new attractions that will make your visit even better. Come to Rosh Hanikra for an exciting, one-of-a-kind experience!
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. Come and show your children a magical world of spectacular nature in all its splendor.
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.
On Saturdays, the small train loved by children of all ages takes you on a beautiful ride along the sea promenade all the way to Achziv and back. A tour guide will enlighten you for the duration of the ride, which lasts about 40 minutes. The train does not operate in the winter.
