Rosh HaNikra

From Nahariya bus station we took a bus to Rosh Hanikra (about 15min ride). The view over the coastline is spectacular.

The entrance fee was 43 shekels but, afterwards, we found out you can buy a combined ticket that includes also Akko sights for a little bit more. Anyway, the ticket includes a cable-car ride down to the grottoes, the visit itself and a short video explaining the history of the place.

The walk through the grottoes is amazing, so is the landscape around. It can get very slippery, so be carefull. The sea was really calm and still you could hear the noise of the waves crashing onto the rocks. I can't imagine how it is on a stormy day!

After the grottoes, we went to the little theater for the sound and light show. It's a short movie (around 15min) explaining the history and the legends around this magical place. Then we walked all the way up to the closed Israel-Lebanon border.

We walked a little bit around until we went to the bus stop. I think there were hourly buses back to Nahariya. We waited for about 20min and we went on our bus back. In Nahariya we ate a delicious falafel in one of the many bars around the station and then took the train back to Haifa (18,50 shekels, around 45min).
