This was a once in a lifetime experience for us. It was SUPER HOT and crowded with tourists that were coming by the bus load. Be prepared for a crowded, small and hot changing/ dressing room. Be careful when entering the sea. There are areas...More

You think you know how salty it will be before you get there but it's actually saltier than that. You float so easily it seems it would be impossible to sink. It almost feels like a slimy coating is on you but it's not nearly...More

The journey and the sites are amazing. However, it is now forbidden to swim in most of the Dead Sea beaches which deeply undermines the whole experience.

It's a very cool experience that is definitely worth doing. We only spent about 20 minutes in the water, followed by putting mud on ourselves, letting it dry and then showering off in the sea. We thought the showers would be cold and refreshing but...More

It may not be for everybody, but it is definitely a great experience. Lowest place on Earth, saltiest place on Earth, rub some mud on you and float for half an hour - it's spectacular. Yes it is hot, but than you are probably planning...More

My husband and I visited here for a romantic weekend away from home. Despite the heat we enjoyed going into the sea twice a day at least - usually morning and afternoon hours when the sun is less beating down on us. Its the best...More

Wouldn't recommend it. Poverty in the West Bank is very high, and that opportunity might prove too tempting to some. You may want to consider a nearby hotel that allows for valet parking. That should alleviate your concern.
