If you are travelling along the western Galilee area, do yourself a favor - stop at Rosh Hanikra and admire some of nature's sheer beauty.
Rosh Hanikra translates from Hebrew to something like “top of the grottos.”
Now if you are asking yourself what grottos are, here is the answer: grottos are caves created by the action of the sea on the soft cliff rock. Here is a picture to give you a better idea:
The grottos are beautiful and so is the view from the top. In the past you could only approach the grottos from the sea, however nowadays there is a cable car that will take you there.
This beautiful geological formation
is located very close to Israel’s border with Lebanon, on the
Mediterranean Sea. It isn’t too far from Akko and is well worth visiting, so take my word for it and check it out. Here's a map of the area so you can see where it is located (zoom out to see it's location relative to the whole of Israel and surrounding countries):
