The Dead Sea at 400 m below sea level and great sunsets and sunrises with views of the West Bank and the mountain range of the East Bank and Oaisis on the mountains slopes ... breathtaking views and a very high level of Oxygen too.

A unique experience, a MUST SEE in Israel
Sep 2020
Why The Dead Sea should be a Must See not to be missed when you're visiting Israel?
Because of the floating with no efforts,
because of this oily feeling of the water on your skin,
because of the scalding heat which not only is stunning but also because the way it suppresses almost every sound there,
because the Desert landscapes that after less than an hour drive makes you feel you're on another Planet.

Because all this area is something unique,
And because you wouldn't want to risk a FOMO when back home.
You're in Israel, you've seen Jerusalem, you've seen so many World Class Archeological sites, you've seen the contrast everywhere and all over this so special country...

So please don't miss the Dead Sea, would you?

Psoriasis relief
Jun 2020 • Couples
If you suffer from psoriasis, spend 2 weeks in the sun at the Dead Sea for months of relief. 400 feet below sea level filters out the negative rays of the sun. Combined with the natural bromides coming from the Dead Sea provides non steroidal, natural relief for several months. I come twice a year.

Better in Jordan
Mar 2020
Not sure if it was because it was my second visit or because the first time I went in Jordan with better facilities. Felt anti-climatic, but always cool for first timers to float in the Dead Sea.

An amazing experience
Mar 2020
Floating in the Dead Sea is an amazing experience the water feels completely different it's like a smooth cream & you can float in an about a foot of water. It's really weird but amazing at the same time.

The other thing is that you are at the lowest point on earth at 394 metres below sea level which is another tick on the bucket list.

If you are in Israel or Jordan this is a must do & a once in lifetime experience.

Must see destination
Mar 2020
This area is very much a hotel spa area and most of the hotels have a private beach area. However there are free beach areas and there is access to changing rooms on the beach and showers. A dip in the Dead Sea is a must. Well worth a visit.

A drive down to the bottom of the earth
Mar 2020 • Friends
On a cloudy, cold day in Jerusalem we drove down to see how winter was doing at the Dead Sea shoreline. Heard there were a lot of wildflowers in fields near the settlement of Ovnat not far from Kaliya. Found lots of cars and hikers there. Parked our car and followed those on foot. Through stands of date palm trees. Finally found some carpets of delicate flowers in purple, yellow, white and red. It was a beautiful day to be out and around in a place that is usually so hot and inhospitable. Worth trying to see these flowers in mid-february. Probably more vivid than a month later.

Dead Sea - The world's lowest
Dec 2019
Floating on the Dead Sea was a must do on my list. However, when we got there, the wind was too strong and no one was allowed to get into the water. So, visitors were seen rubbing the mineral mud all over their face and body by the water instead. There were many dead sea products for sale; Restaurants, convenient stands for quick bite and spa/message center. Since we can't 'swim', we decided to go for the mud massage. We definitely made the right choice because being rubbed in with hot mud and wrapped in hot towels were so relaxing. Just be sure to ask for 45 minutes instead of 35 minutes. It's just too good not to for maximum time.
