Traveled to Kalia beach as part of a guided tour from Jerusalem to Masada and the Dead Sea. Facilities for changing and showering with lockers, also a couple of bars to buy food and drink and take shelter from the sun. Experienced a float in the dead sea and an all over body mud pack which is worth the experience... More

We drove to this resort on a Tuesday and it was very quiet. We paid for entrance and buffet for 2 adults and 2 kids which starts at midday. The buffet was amazing with good choices and choice of food and drink. The facilities were great with a good choice of things to buy at good prices, including Ice lollies... More

If you want a relaxing afternoon away from crowded streets and alleys, this is a good choice. The beach is located only 30 minutes away from Jerusalem city center,at the northern end of the Dead Sea. It offers you sun loungers (also in shade)as well as two bars,one restaurant,cosmetics shop, dressing room, showers. It is quite clean, good service.

We took bus 468 (I think) from the bus terminal in Jerusalem. It took about 30-40 minutes to Kalya beach. I think the fare was about 7 NIS. From the bus stop in Kalya beach, it's a 10 minute walk. We payed the entrance fee of 57 NIS plus the fee for the lunch. The lunch was not very fabulous,... More

We came here as part of a tour and as I haven't been to other locations it is hard to compare. The sea is obviously receding and really they need to do a little work on the actual access to the water. There are some basic changing rooms, bars, an air-conditioned restaurant, a shop selling dead sea products. Down by... More

We came here based on a recommendation from our hotel near the Sea of Galilee and really liked it. The beach has showers, bathrooms and drinks/food which were needed given the temperature! While it isn't a beach by the conventional definition it was large and well looked after. Sea was warm and a great experience.

Visited today (a Thursday) and there were very few people there. We had an enjoyable time. Total visitors were about 30 while we we're there. Changing rooms were clean and though it can be steep to get down to water, there are stairs that can be used. Bring your own towels, as most visitors do, and you don't need to... More
