Its sort of like visiting the Great Salt Lake. Been there. ...done that. I was with a group. Many got in, but I chose to only go down and touch it. ..just type o say I did. In fairness, there are many fine resorts and spas here where people come for therapy in the water and relaxation.

En Gedi, Dead Sea. Marvellous canyon ended by a waterfall: miracle in the desert. Enjoy the pictures and visit the national park, facilitating all the options you need to spend there a day. The park is reachable by public transport from Jerusalem, too.

The dead sea was one of the wildest places I have ever been, so unique. You have to go swimming and float in the water it is crazy how you can float in less than an inch of water.

During a short weekend trip to Israel me and two friends took a drive down to the deadsea. Even though it was a little cold we had to take a short bath in it. It's a strange feeling when you can't sink. I highly recommend to visit this beautiful and interesting area. We were also able to get the lowest... More

You're warm (you will be as its boiling in the desert), you run into the sea to cool down.. Hang on the water is hotter than you are. That's the Dead Sea. It's a cool experience and something you have to do if visiting Israel or Jordan. It feels like you're sat on a chair whilst in the sea! So... More

Dead sea is something unique, but I chose to visit Ein Gedi Beach, which one is closed due big firms are drying the Dead Sea and that produce holes near to the see, so government had to close that beach and build a new road (this was what Israel people told me after tell them my bad experience). Anyway I... More

Water temperatures were... More

Some of us went into the sea, came out with smooth skin, soft and cleaned. Showers were available to rinse off after swimming. There were sitting places for those who do not swim. It's a beautiful place, one must see.

Will never forget it. Middle of winter, freezing temperatures, but this was still the highlight of the trip.

As advertised, unlike anything you have ever experienced! I highly recommend going to a beach with a public shower so you can rinse after.
