Bathe in the world-famous Dead Sea’s magical waters on a day trip, available from Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, which are both around two hours’ drive from Israel’s and Jordan’s shared natural attraction. Found at the lowest point on earth, the water in the Dead Sea is so salty that you’ll float buoyantly at the surface. Your skin will feel noticeably smoother, thanks to the softening mud that bathers slather on their skin before taking a dip. The salt is packed with minerals and is known for its antiseptic and pain-relieving qualities. You’ll get the chance to buy some Dead Sea products at a cosmetics shop and take some of this natural wonder home with you. We recommend bringing swimwear, a towel, hat and sunscreen.
Comfortable walking shoes, hat, sun cream, swimming costume and towel recommended.
