Not only the lowest spot on earth, but also the saltiest and most mineral-laden body of water in the world, the Dead Sea, which joins Israel and Jordan, is legendary as a source of healing, and has become a popular center for health, rehabilitation and beauty treatments.

The first thing our guide told us before letting us off the bus was please to not dive, do not even stick your head under the water. He said he saw multiple people that disregarded the warning and came out of the dead sea bleeding...More

Clear blue water with absolutely no contaminants and no sea life. Due to the high concentrate of salt, nothing can live in the water so there's nothing lurking there that can 'get' you. But that's not to say it can't hurt you. I was surprised...More

If you visit Israel, you simply must go to the Dead Sea and float on the water. This is made possible by the high salt concentration. To me, this is one of nature's marvels. The scenery is beautiful as well as you are surrounded by...More

In spite of all you've read about the buoyancy of the Dead Sea, nothing prepares you for the sensation of being literally unsinkable. Try your best to go deeper into the water, and you pop right up, like a cork! We had a great time...More

Visited Israel on a cruise and took the opportunity to tick off another box on our Bucket List by visiting the Dead Sea, after a tour of Jerusalem. For the record, this is not really a sea at all, but a very large salty lake...More

I've always wanted to see the Dead Sea, lowest place on Earth. I waded in about knee deep and could no longer keep my feet on the bottom! Amazing! Resort was great, restaurant was pricy but good.

The dead sea is shrinking!!! and this is evident in where the parking lot and buildings were placed only a few years ago. You will most likely have to climb down... if you have reduced mobility PLEASE MAKE SURE that you go to an appropriate...More

Agree, #1 is a great drive. Make sure you go to the south part of Dead Sea, by Neve Zohar. Even if it's a longer drive, the experience North vs South couldn't be more opposite. South by Neve Zohar the water is clear, there... More
