This is a very important place to visit if you go to Israel. The mud and salt are an.amazing combination for skin ! I wish I had spent more time here to apply the mud and let it dry. Despite this, I did notice a good difference in my scarred legs and dry skin feet which​ became so smooth I... More

Visiting the Dead Sea was possibly the most fun we had in Israel. Seriously! I had done some research prior to our visit so I knew that people wore whatever they were comfortable in -- from being fully covered to bikinis. A few tips: 1. Don't shave for several days prior. Bind/cover cuts really well. The seas is 30% salt,... More

Ein Bokek is a small hotel strip on the beach of the dead sea where we have stayed in Israel. The dead sea region in general is a nice, relatively isolated place, for a relaxing holiday with spas and full pension hotels, but the best experience is to go in and float on the dead sea at any time of...

After visiting Masada, our next stop was the Dead Sea. Though the weather was cloudy, I was determined to swim in that water as well as "mud myself up" If you can bring swim googles, do so. The salt will surely burn your eyes. Try avoid getting water in your mouth, it will leave an awful taste. Floating endlessly in... More

When we arrived at the dead sea, it was cloudy and a bit chilly but that did not stop the group of tourist ahead of us to float in the dead sea. We covered our bodies with the black mud found at the side of the beach but beware, there are small sink holes around the muddy area. After applying... More

Particularly cold end of January may not be the choice timing for the first time experience of Dead Sea but that's what we got and we enjoyed it anyhow. Cold but fun! You really can float! There is the famous healing mud with minerals for face and body and the water tastes very salty. So do not shave on the... More

This is one of a kind wonders in the world. High salinity of this lake helps you float on surface. Pay attention to how fast you go to shower after you exit from salt water, because you can suffer injuries caused by salt deposited on your skin.

If you are searching for the place to enjoy spa or to treat your skin, joints etc - this is the best place in world. Unique climate, unique sea water. Be aware that spa is not aloud for kids under 16. This is the law. And you can enjoy the floating in the sea all year round.

-The required time needed to see and fully enjoy this 2 hrs. We did not want to waste a whole day on this so we went with Abraham Tours, which only has a combined 5 hrs trip for the dead sea. -The bus leaves Abraham Hostels at 13:15 and gets there in 45min. So from 2pm-4:45 you can spend in... More

it is hard to find a place where its wild nature is so deeply connected with human heritage - the amount of biblical stories that took place here is second to jerusalem. enjoy the beach, the oasis and the archeological site - and use a guide if you want to understand more.
