This was our last stop on a self-guided day tour of the Dead Sea region that began in Masada that morning. We had a rental car and drove ourselves from Tel Aviv. We had initially planned on going to Mineral Beach, but upon missing the turn off to Qumran Caves, we turned around at Kalia Beach. After the visit to... More

It was very relaxing and definitely a good spot to enjoy the dead sea. Floating was even cooler than described. The showers and towels were a must have, and coating ourselves in black mud was very entertaining. Highly recommended spot to stop by.

Promised kids to come for 15 minutes (kids can't enter anyway), was asked to pay 54 shekels for entrance, for EACH person!!! A great place, but only if you want to teach your kids that money does not grow on trees....

Unfortunately have to agree with most of the negative reviews here - a lot of which we read before we went - more fool us! Rooms were fine - rusty light fittings, etc, didn't spoil our holiday. Clean towels almost every day, clean sheets, bins emptied daily but no other cleaning done - wiping worktops, sweeping floors. Reception staff always

Lying flat on your back, floating in the sea is extraordinary! Lots of fun, well worth doing, and it makes your skin feel amazing! Kalia beach has all the amenities you'd want - a basic changing room, good showers, and lots of mud! But the resort is a bit odd - a bit of a ghost town as you drive... More

Swimming in the Dead Sea - the lowest place on the planet - is like nothing we have ever done before, warm, muddy, and so easy to float in. You will need flip-flops on the beach - the sand is very hot. Be very careful when entering the water - the shallow water had knee deep mud in places -... More
