Water Body · Nature / Park
Swim, float, and nourish your skin at Dead Sea, a hypersaline lake. At 428 m (1,404 ft) below sea level, it is the earth's lowest point. However, the sea is most notable for the water's saltiness, which makes it good for floating and lends it some restorative dermatological properties. Salt and minerals from the sea are used in cosmetics and bath products all over the world. Camp or lounge on the sandy, open-access, northwest beach surrounded by hotels, or visit the mineral beach where bathers coat their skin in healing black mud. Be careful not to get the water in your eyes or in any open cuts--it will sting. Before you head to Mitzpe Shalem, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Mitzpe Shalem itinerary planning tool, to make sure you see all that Mitzpe Shalem has to offer, including Dead Sea.
