The Dead Sea is famous for being the lowest point in the world, sitting 1,269 feet (383 meters) below sea level. It is also one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world, and as such, bodies will naturally float in the water. Because of this hyper-salination that is so unique to the Dead Sea, visitors come from all over the world to swim in the sea, as well as access the nutrient-rich mud on the banks. There is a 4-star spa hotel that utilizes the mud from the bank on the Jordanian coast.

There are many hotels near the Dead Sea, as well as a campsite on the Ein Gedi coast, which provides showers and toilets. There is also a wonderful set of local gift and souvenir shops, in which you can purchase Minerals Dead Sea Products.

Practical Info

The easiest access to the Dead Sea from Israel is out of Jerusalem on the north end or Eliat from the south end. It is also possible to reach it from the north via Tel Aviv, but this is slightly more difficult to reach. There are also daily buses from Jerusalem (lines 486 and 487), Tel Aviv (line 421), Eliat (444), Beersheva and Arad (384).

There are also taxi and car hire services that will go out to the Dead Sea.
