Swim, float, and nourish your skin at Dead Sea, a hypersaline lake. At 428 m (1,404 ft) below sea level, it is the earth's lowest point. However, the sea is most notable for the water's saltiness, which makes it good for floating and lends it some restorative dermatological properties. Salt and minerals from the sea are used in cosmetics and bath products all over the world. Camp or lounge on the sandy, open-access, northwest beach surrounded by hotels, or visit the mineral beach where bathers coat their skin in healing black mud. Be careful not to get the water in your eyes or in any open cuts--it will sting.

  • Were in January 2018. The Sun was +15 and in the sea as well. But when the sun goes away immediately sharply cold. Shore-fine sand. Enter and quite finely. Have to go. Water ropy and lipkovataja. As if with Glycerin. And dive it is necessary accurately not to horrible to face, and especially in his eyes. This control prevents relax.

  • A must if visiting Israel. Fun experience to swim when it floats. The surrounding area is nice with high mountains around. Helpful to have the car then it can be difficult to get there on your own.
