DEAD SEA



Dead Sea

The breathtaking landscape…the therapeutic air and mud…the luxury spas…a visit to this incredible area will leave you feeling anything BUT dead!

 

So why is it called the Dead Sea?  The salinity (salt content) and minerals in this amazing body of water inhibit the existence of most life forms.  However, it’s these same salt & minerals that provide the perfect environment for those who want to treat their body and mind.  Here are a few interesting facts about this extraordinary area: 

  • It’s the lowest location on Earth – 400 metres below sea level
  • The unique properties of the water mean that even non-swimmers can float effortlessly
  • It’s one of the best locations in the world for sunbathing, as the extra layers of atmosphere help block the suns harmful radiation and let the beneficial properties through
  • The air contains extra oxygen and bromine, which causes a relaxing effect
  • The area is virtually pollen-free, so great for those with allergies
  •  The combination of mud, sea & air is highly beneficial for those suffering from skin ailments as well as those with joint problems (arthritis, etc)
  • There are many spas offering a multitude of health & beauty treatments
  • The area experiences an average of 330 days of sunshine per year

Those are just some of the facts and health benefits of staying in the area.  But after all the relaxing and pampering, what else can you do?  Well, a lot.  Allow us to name a few: 

  • Massada National Park – The major historical / archaeological site in the area and home of Herod’s mountain fortress.  Also location of the Masada Sound & Light Show
  • Qumran National Park – Home of the caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered
  • Ein Gedi Nature Reserve – Desert Oasis between David & Arugot canyons with waterfalls, pools and many types of flora & fauna.

You’ll also be able to arrange plenty of activities as well, from jeep tours to camel riding. 

On top of all the health benefits, fascinating tourist sites and activity possibilities, you also have a great selection of accommodation to choose from.  There are 5* luxury spa hotels, kibbutz accommodations, guests houses and even a few youth hostels – a choice to suite every budget.

 

Treat yourself to a Dead Sea experience – it will make you feel alive!
