Lowest elevation on Earth's surface. Visited by many historical figures. The sea is not that large. The enjoyable feature of the sea is the ability to float on it, somewhat like a cork. We were instructed that it is best to enter the water and to float on your back. The beach has outdoor showers strategically placed to rinse yourself... More

Great place to relax and use the air, salt, water and mud for medicinal reasons. Helps with joint ailments, psoriasis and more. Can't really get sunburned which is an advantage but must drink large amounts of water.

Went to see the Dead Sea on the Neve Midbar beach. Fantastic view on the drive from Masada to the beach - and an even more scenic view by the waterside, overlooking Jordan on the opposite bank. Did not go for a swim, but was extremely content to just soak in the sun, the clean air, and the scenic view.... More

The Dead Sea is along a very scenic drive from Eilat to Jerusalem. We enjoyed seeing it and touching the water. It was cold, so we never entertained the idea of getting in it. There are a few hotels and spas along the Sea. We actually found a FREE area to park and explore the salt bank and touch the... More

Cheapest way how to enjoy all day in Salted sea ( I prefer hebrew term ים המלח , that the locations is Sodom Gomorrah take as a myth ) is bus 444,486...from Jerusalem (27₪ one way to Mitzpe Shalem, a bit more to Ein Gedi), Kalya beach is nice, but too comfortable for my way of travelling :-)

Simply breathtaking. It looks like the Caribbean. If you go to Israel you have to go to the Dead Sea.

Largest natural Spa in the world. We took some mud from the dead sea and used it as a pack over our face and legs and it actually felt smooth once rinsed. A lot of tourist were floating in the dead sea. There are various sports where one can stop and admire the sea while sitting on the rocks.

In combination with Ein Gedi this is a must see with a quick trip from Jerusalem. Got there during twilight for some nice pictures.

There are many expensive resorts one could stay at, but our local guide took us to a part of the beach that appeared to be free (except for parking). There was a free bathroom/changing room, and we were able to float in the dead sea for 30 minutes or so. Unfortunately the changing room closed earlier than we expected. The... More
