The beautiful view of the Dead Sea, with Israel on one side and the scenic hills of Jordan on the other, along with the West Bank, captivates observers. The Dead Sea holds the distinction of being the lowest body of water on Earth, located 400 meters below sea level.

Why Visit the Dead Sea?

The sea between Israel and Jordan earned its name, the Dead Sea, because of its high salt content, which makes it uninhabitable for any creature or plant. The Sea contains approximately 35% salt, a concentration so extreme that no plants or fish can survive in its waters. Its saltiness is ten times greater than that of regular seawater.

The salt from the Dead Sea accumulates layer by layer on its sand and rocks, causing them to shimmer because of the presence of sodium chloride. Tourists visit this sea to effortlessly float in its waters and to experience its therapeutic properties. Visitors apply mud from the Sea, rich in hyaluronic acid and various skin-friendly minerals, and then sunbathe to enhance its benefits for their skin.

Millions of tourists from around the world visit Israel every year to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Dead Sea. Luxurious resorts, albeit expensive, have been constructed near the Sea to accommodate these tourists. However, the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas has led to a significant decrease in tourist numbers, resulting in a notable drop in hotel prices.
