One of the better beach resorts on the Dead Sea. Clean changing rooms and showers (cold water), but only for 5 or 6 at a time. Entry to the sea is easy and safe; and a good bar to unwind in after "The Lowest Bar in the World" (although I have drunk in lower bars that this!)

The beach is ok, but other services (dressing rooms, coffee in the coffe shops) are poor. Coffee is really bad,while the dressing rooms are dirty. Overall it is too expensive.

This is literally the first access to the dead sea if you drive from Jerusalem. It's about 30-40 minutes drive from the city. Facilities OK, Plenty of mud for bathing; not too stoney for walking on. Both the water and air temp were warm enough in mid December The drive from Jerusalem felt safe enough - didn't get stopped at... More

It's an easy half-day activity from Jerusalem. The beach area is well kept, but sadly, the water levels of the Dead Sea is receding. We see many tiers of sand bar levels that marked previous shorelines. Current shoreline has all the mud that is known for its exfoliating properties. The saltwater in the lake is not sodium based like natural... More

We spent second day of christmas and the water was really warm and perfect for bathing. I didn't liked the restrooms as they were crowded and not so clean, but the rest was ok.

Stunning view over Jordan. We were here in December and still took a bath in the Dead Sea. Hot temperatures, nice resort and great people. One hundread percent safe!

Kalia Beach is located at the northern side of the Dead Sea, and the access area is marked. Plastic chairs are also provided. I suppose it is the uniqueness of this salty body water and the black mud. which apparently contains several minerals that benefits our body, are the characteristics that attract many visitors around the globe, We applied mud...

We spent a very pleasant afternoon here, and weren't disappointed with the view. Jordan is on the other side of the sea, and for those interested in history, Mount Nebo from which Moses viewed the promised land is viewable from here. The beach is manned by lifeguards, and there are toilets, changing facilites, showers, a beach bar and a restaurant.... More

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
