The number of locals must be proof that this beach is the one. It is the most Northern beach on the deadsea. It was a bit pricey to enter, but the facilities are great. Chairs are provided under shaded canopies. The swimming area is clearly demarcated. The mud is great! There are showers, clean ablution facilities, a shop and restaurant.... More

A must if you want to float in the Dead Sea. It is one of the first beaches that you come to. Although the facilities are basic, there are changing rooms and showers. Once you have had the experience of floating in the Sea, there is are bars, and several souvenir shops to entice you to part with your money... More

If you are pressed for time on your trip and want to experience the Dead Sea quickly and cheaply, this is a good choice. But I would highly recommend going over to the Jordan side for a more luxurious, enjoyable time. And you can see the sun set on the Dead Sea from Jordan which is not possible from the... More

I was looking for a place to go at the Dead Sea and I was recommended to go to this place. I was a little concerned because we were travelling with our baby daughter and shade was really important. Overall - it was a very nice experience! There's a fee upon entrance, but you get access to the beach, sunbeds... More

Place seems a bit rundown. Services are very limited here. The Dead Sea itself was ok but not so much yo actually do. Rub yourself with mud then gloat for a bit. 30 minutes should do it.

Floating without effort in a salt lake below sea level is amazing. The place is well organized for tourists. Entry fee costs 50 ILS (~12 USD). Other parts of the Dead Sea are not accessible to tourists, signs say it's forbidden. So you have to choose from a paying option. Kalia beach supposedly is one of the cheaper options. It's... More

The first beach on the way down the Dead Sea, this beach offers a small access that is crowded with tour buses and locals. Over priced souvenir shops and a pricey entrance will make me want to try the other beaches in the future. The experience of being perfectly buoyant is an unforgettable experience that is really worth the visit.

Kalia is fine if you are in the Jericho area (it is manned by Jericho people) and you want a quick dip in the Dead Sea. The basic admission price seemed a bit steep but there may be a package deal if you visit nearby Qumran.

Stopped here on our tour of Israel recently. This is one of the areas you can take a dip in the dead sea.

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
