National Parks · Bodies of Water · Beaches
Dead Sea Region occupies the lowest area in the world, located 428 m (1404 ft) below sea level. The area surrounding the hypersalinated waters contains a wealth of eclectic scenery, including rugged canyons, deserts, and many oases of lush green vegetation. Dead Sea Region trips wouldn't be complete without an adventure in the water itself, in which swimming feels a lot more like floating because of the high saline levels. A number of spas and resorts cater to visitors looking for modern amenities, while ruins of ancient sites appeal to those interested in adding a bit of history and culture to their holiday in Dead Sea Region.
