A visit to the Dead Sea is really a highlight and one should not miss it when visiting Israel. The border between Israel and Jordan is right in the middle of the Dead Sea. Enjoy a swim in the sea, or better to say lie in the water and avoid getting the extremly salty water in your eyes, mouth and... More

It was a stifling 40 degrees when we visited after a fabulous morning at Masada. The water was like a hot bath and it was an amazing experience to float with such buoyancy that it was difficult to stand up. The sand was oh so hot and the crusted salt at the edge of the sea can be sharp so... More

I've wanted to visit the Dead Sea my whole life and I wasn't disappointed. Such a unique and amazing experience. It's beautiful and clean and warm and we had the most relaxing and enjoyable day. We covered ourselves in mud and then cleaned off in the oily, mineral rich waters and it felt fantastic.

We have an amazing tour guide who is very knowledgeable about the Dead Sea, but it seems there should be a place where you can get more information about the sinkholes, the receding of the water, the evaporation pools. We did experience getting near and in the water, and got a lot of information from our guide. It was good... More

Totally Unique experience that you cannot experience elsewhere! Be sure you don't have any open cuts as the salt will sting Be sure to put the mud on you - your skin will feel so soft after! The waters isn't that refreshing whoever, and don't try to swim -- you will only float A must do!! Must bring your camera!

Part of a tour from Cyprus.....Bus drove straight from the airport to the Dead sea.Scorching hot but well worth it....Stopped in a beach area which was pretty basic but the main objective was to lie in the Dead sea.Cafes and a shop selling salt's,soap's,mineral's etc....Changing room's and showers available.Tricky walk down to access the sea,where people were covered in mud...

Masada Sunrise, Ein Gedi and Dead Sea Tour I arrived at Tel Aviv late on Wednesday afternoon. Although the 13-hour flight was uncomfortable it did not detract from the excitement of being in Tel Aviv. I took the shuttle to the Hotel Indigo and after I checked in I showered and dressed in my hiking clothes and packed my bathing... More

Its a crazy feeling being able to float naturally ... is like you don't have gravity at all ... I advise you to carry some soap (liquid or not) so you can shower after, cause is a long ride back to the hotel.
