I was many times next to the dead sea. The only one bad thing there that during the summer you would suffer a lot of the incredible heating, but in general everyone have to try this experience. The dead Sea can make miracles

I had read all the reviews and was ready to make an afternoon of if it at the Dead Sea. We had just completed the Masada hike so we were ready for some take it easy time. I got in the water and lasted about ten minutes. The water was just too warm for me. Also, it leaves you a... More

This the ultimate sea that every one seeking real water experience have to visit. Floating, back swimming and walking in water. While you are totally standing in water you can move your legs as if you are riding a bike and walk in water. This is much better than the stand up pedaling

Amazing view! So cool to just float around. Barely burns, and totally worth it! The mud makes your skin extremely soft and moisturized. Go early in the day while it is less hot.

Very interesting day trip. Ofir D. was an amazing guide! Very knowledgeable and friendly. He also simultaneously translated into Spanish as some people in the tour did not speak English. Thanks for a nice day!

Amazing and I will never forget it. Bring sandals, it was 47 degrees and I burnt the soles of my feet getting 30 yards from the water to the shower. It does cost 55 shekels to enter the beach but worth it for the shaded loungers, changing rooms and showers. Don't know how but our driver got our entry reduced... More

Incredible, if you've never been to the lowest dry place on earth and floated in the salty brine of the Dead Sea your missing out. I suggest you buy a pack of Dead Sea mud from one of the shops along the shore, cover yourself from head-toe, wait 10-15 mins and gently wash it off whilst floating in the wonderfully... More

Hmmm, a really weird sensation to be bobbing around virtually what feels like on top of the water! The water is really oily so a very strange tactile experience. Yes you can slap that mud all over yourself ( the exact same mud that millions of others have been doing too! Eeuw!) Basic showers on the waters edge to rinse... More

As you might know, the Dead Sea is shrinking and several access points are closed due to danger of sink holes. Three countries have diverted the fresh mountain water that would “feed” it and balance out evaporation. The reason I’m typing those opening sentences is – phone ahead to ensure that where you plan to go is open. We used... More
