- Relax on a private beach on the Dead Sea
- Mineral-rich water amazing for the skin
Departing from Jerusalem well before the sun gathers full strength, this day-trip to the legendary Dead Sea ensures you arrive at the best time when the water is cooler and nowhere near as crowded. The incredible salinity of the Dead Sea means that plants and animals can’t survive, hence the name, but the minerals do wonders for the skin, and are also said to help with osteoarthritis. You’ll be basking on a private beach at the north end of the sea, that doesn’t see as many people, making it much easier to relax.
Because the Dead Sea has so much salt in it, you find yourself floating naturally, an amazing feeling. As you take in the beautiful scenery of the Jordan Rift Valley, you can cover your skin in the mineral-rich mud, sip a refreshing cup of tea, or simply float gently along in the sunshine. This is a bucket-list experience for anyone on holiday in Jerusalem, so make sure you pack a swimsuit!
