Rosh HanikraRosh Hanikra

North of Akko, where the border between Lebanon and Israel meets the sea, is a beautiful grotto called Rosh Hanikra. It is a white chalk cliff face into which the pounding sea has carved beautiful grottoes and tunnels. It is owned by a nearby kibbutz.

Years ago, the only access to the area was by sea. In 1988, we paid to go down in a cable car to explore it. The cable car is said to be the steepest in the world, ascending at a 60° gradient.  Waves wash and slosh into the caves. It is a beautiful, haunting place.
