The Sea Elevator, which is located at the center of the Rishonim Promenade, has two compartments that pass inside a clear shaft and it can serve about 60 passengers at a time. The Sea Elevator connects to the Promenade through an upper lookout bridge which allows one to walk above the sea. From here you can enjoy wonderful 360 degrees views. Next to the bridge there is a cafeteria and a restaurant. The Sea Elevator service is provided for a small charge.
