Dead Sea beaches

It should be noted that the coasts of the Dead Sea do not provide a beach holiday in the classical sense of the word. The concentration of trace elements and the salinity of the waters of this therapeutic reservoir is very high. It is advisable to stay in the water for no more than 20 minutes.

Also, it will not come out to dive; you can’t even splash, as salt water will irritate the mucous membrane of the eye very much. The entrance to the Dead Sea is usually rocky. However, all these features more than compensate for the healing properties that local nature has. So this area is rightly considered one of the best balneological resorts on the planet.
