Kalya is just a 30-minute drive from Jerusalem. It's one of the cluster of resorts at the northern end of the Dead Sea, but it's the best-maintained and easiest to use. New chairs and loungers; even when it's full, it's not too noisy. Plenty of shaded spots to relax in and decent, if small, changing areas. Restrooms are constantly cleaned... More

As mentioned in the title it was the best attraction during our trip. Although you have to pay 55 NIS to enter the facility it was an unforgettable experience. How many places you can go to, go into the sea and just sit on the water and for example read a book or newspaper? To be precise we visited first... More

Its a great place to float, has plenty of shade and showers to wash off the mud, plus a life-saver standing by. Good cafe to but food & drinks.

Its about a half hour ride from Jerusalem. The road is quite secure. Went there with the family and friends for the first time and we enjoyed. Good value. A special experience.

Had to visit the place in the late October, when it should be considered among best time to visit Dead Sea in generally. Stayed for around 3 hrs, as we had to drive back to Ashdod city,where the cruise ship we were on, was docked. It was a really great experience - there is a small fee to be paid... More

We had a very good Dead Sea experience at Kalia beach. We went early (by about 9:00). It was not yet crowded and not yet too hot. By the time we left (at around 10:30) it was starting to be too hot.

You change in the changing room, then make your way down to the sea - hurry before it dries up! Then shower off and get dressed again. Apart from some shops and eateries that's about it. However it does what it says on the can, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg like the Jordan resorts you can see... More

What a wonderful place. This was one of the highest points of our visit to the region. Fantastic beach. The infrastructure provided by the Kalia Resort is amazing. There are shades and sunbeds of different types and sizes. We had our baby with us and that was fine, even though external temperature was beyond 40C. The restaurant provides breathtaking views...
