If you travel without a car, you won't be able to get there, though it is free for the hotel guests. Travel agencies bring there tourists, and in the afternoon it looks like "a melting pot", noisy and crowded. Despite the beach is free for the hotel guests, they charge for lockers and towels. The locker that I used had... More

Wow, lowest point on earth, extremely salty watres, float like you never thought possible and mineral loaded mud. The beach facilities are great, the change rooms are undersized and overcrowded. Quite awalk down to the beach, stairs are mineral coated from droppings off the foot traffic so very hazardous walking - be careful.

The place is quite clean, the beach is so nice, especially in this time of year. The water are warm and pleasant. Lots of mud to rub your body. There weren't any free shading areas so we asked to join other people and it was ok. Tables and chairs are already there for your convenience. The kids enjoyed the experience... More

We did this on a tour which went to Jerusalem first and then the Dead Sea, I liked the fact that it wasn't overly commercialised but had a decent changing rooms and other good facilities.

It's an experience to walk the steps down to the Dead Sea, taking a dip in this mineral rich water and covering yourself with mud from head to toe. Floating in this sea with no fish is not a problem at all, in fact I do not think you can sink here. The water level shrinks each year one meter... More

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

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.
