Daytrip to Rosh HaNikra
Just by the Israel - Lebanon border (which is closed) are the caves and white cliffs of Rosh HaNikra. It is a beautiful place by the Mediterranean Sea.
The caves have been carved out of the rock by rain and the sea and a long tunnel has been made by man to connect the caves and make access easier for visitors. I saw the caves a sunny day, but I can imagine how different it would be a cloudy day with strong wind and bigger waves coming into the caves. Around the caves are white cliffs, which look very nice against the blue sea.
Both to the north and south there are tunnels carved out by the British. The tunnels were for the railroad the British were building to connect Europe and Egypt. In the north tunnel there is a 20 minutes long film about the history of the railroad.
The site is open between 8.30 - 16.00 in winter and between 8.30 - 18.00 in summer. Several days in July - August it is open until 23.00. Some evenings there is live music and sometimes the place is used for private weddings and anniversaries etc.
To reach the caves you need to take a cable car for a very short ride.
The price for the entry to the caves and the cable car is 38 shekels (July 2005).
To go to Rosh HaNikra from Haifa you can take the train to Nahariya (45 minutes) and from Nahariya you take a bus on to Rosh HaNikra (15 minutes).
