Once you enter the water and lie back to float, you can truly relax. It's a unique experience just floating on the water, and your skin feels so soft and like it's covered with soap. A place to chill and relax.

Litter everywhere. People don't care. The area seems trashy. Not a good first impression. Seems run down. Hotels are way overpriced by hundreds of dollars per night. This place rips off tourists.

After hearing and reading about the Dead Sea all my life, actually seeing it made it real. Yes, it's as salty as everyone says (about 30%, compared to about 3% for most oceans). Definitely worth seeing, and taking a quick dip.

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.
What is the best public beach on a stop from Masada toward Jerusalem? Thank you kindly in advance!
