The Dead Sea is slowly getting smaller and the beach area bigger. You have to take a bus that brings you back to the beach area as it continues to shrink. You need something on your feet as the salt is sharp and can cut your feet. The water feels "oily" and you float on top of it. You do... More

Very salty water. if you go out too far then you feet go out from under you and you are floating. It feels very oily - like you are swimming in baby oil. You definitely need a shower and a change of clothes after getting wet. Everyone tastes it -- tastes horrible! Kids love it. Many people stay at the... More

It was fun to finally be able to experience the Dead Sea. We were a little surprised at how big the beach area was. There are beach chairs and umbrellas available to use. They of course have locker rooms available for showering and changing clothes. Also there is a place to buy food and drinks. The beach has several...

One of my most loved photo-shooting locations. Every time I go there, the view is just amazing and almost completely different from the previous times

There is nothing like the Dead Sea, either in feel, experience, or atmosphere. By all means, take a dip, even if you don't know how to swim. You can't drown! Read your newspaper or cover yourself with its therapeutic mud - you will not forget the Dead Sea.
