Rosh HaNikra Grottoes
The Rosh HaNikra grottoes are characterized by unique beauty and turquoise color changes during the day and seasons. These grottoes are a geological consequence of a process that has been going on for thousands of year because of thousands of years of the power of the sea. Visitors can explore the grottoes and caves by themselves by following a trail. Photo Credit: Mary Madigan
