Hi. I recommend to visit beach as early as possible as later lot of noisy groups comming. Lifeguard all the time in position. Not very expensive bars. Sun bed and sun shelters in the price. Cost 55 NIS in November 2015.

This place has very poor changing rooms and no toiletries. It was altogether disappointing with just a bar, a couple of shops and no swimming pool which we were told was there. The experience of floating on the water is fun but do be careful not to splash the water in your eyes or turn onto your front. Any cuts... More

Offers very crowded changing rooms and outdoor showers. Bring soap and shampoo because you will need it after floating in the Dead Sea. There are chairs and umbrellas, but we found that the heat was hard to handle, so we just used the chairs to hold our purses, etc. There is a nice air conditioned restaurant at the top of... More

One of three paid beaches at the northern shore of the Dead sea. Umbrellas and chairs included in price. Mud freely available. No restaurant, only snack bar offering nuts, potato crisps and drinks, so take your own food.

I love this beach. It is easy to get to it from the main road. There is a fee to enter which allows you to have access to changing rooms, facilities, beach chairs and umbrellas. I saw great improvement since I visited last year, they have extended the coffee and bar facilities. There are more seating facilities with great sea... More

Kalia Beach is okay, but very rustic, and you need to bring your own chair, etc. It is also not very clean. Go over to the Jordanian side and stay in one of the five star hotels just across the border if you really want to enjoy the Dead Sea. Also, you will see the sun setting on the Israeli... More

This is the one beach available to the public along the northern half of the dead sea. We first spent Fri visiting Jerusalem. On Sat morning, we visited Masada. On the way back I wanted to stop at the dead sea. Our choices were - drive further south to Ein Bokek or visit the spa at Ein Gedi. Our colleagues... More

Not many places to access the Dead Sea to swim...so you kind of have to stop here if you want to experience floating in the sea. The beach is not great, often crowded and the staff is not very helpful. But it is definitely worth stopping to experience the sea....

The northernmost Dead Sea beach gets lots of people in winter months and can seem like a kind of scrum. But depending on the day it can be fun and pleasant with friends. Bring towels and things to do (booze maybe); and sit and relax and get the sun by the Dead Sea. As the Dead Sea shrinks the distance... More
