You will go to the Rosh HaNiqra grottoes mostly for the view that it affords of the beautiful white cliffs and azure Mediterranean. It is a popular site among locals (weekends and school holidays) so, if you can, plan your visit around that, do avoid the crowds. Crowds in Israel are loud and bad mannered, and everything in between to spoil your visit. Prior to visiting I wish I read the reviews below. Instead I think I would have preferred to walk down to the grottoes, as tickets are pricey (especially if you rode a cable car before, its nothing special, really), and would have enjoyed more of the view on the walk down (what about walking back up? I dont know, should you take this advice, do post on your experience ;) I did not have the time, but do wish that I have walked along the beach to enjoy its natural beauty.

This review is for the Grottoes and not the restaurant ( I am sure that there is more than 1 restauratn in Rosh HaNikra as of 2014). If you are contemplating a visit to Rosh HaNikra or the vacinity, it is totally worth it. In addition to breathtaking view, this place has a long history (the below sites are included as informative resources. It is a great place to come, enjoy the view, relax and contemplate. However, the place is a popular visitor site and on weekends there are a lot of families visiting. If you want to go down into the grottoes make sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring along a flashlight. Enjoy!

The grottos are amazing & well worth a visit. You access them by taking the cable car, only a short but very steep ride. The day we visited the sea was really pounding in, so the viewing was spectacular. Had to be careful where you walked & not to slip over. But it was well worth the effort, got some really great photos.

The grottos are well worth a visit. Take a good camera with a flash so you can get the needed photographs. It's fun looking up at the secluded military base overlooking Lebanon also.

At the tip of Israel on the border with Lebanon..northwest tip...the cable cars go to the amazing grottos. The colors are just breathtaking. A large tunnel is remaining from the train line that was supposed to go through here...bridge was taken out in the 40's ..the large tunnel remains.
Historical plaque tells the story. The cable car descends..rises at a pretty steep angle...very cool.
