The Dead Sea

Flight Path

Although Israel holds many great historical artifacts, religious sites and ancient cities, for many people the highlight of Israel is floating in the Dead Sea.

With the Dead Sea and Masada within a few miles drive, the combination makes for the perfect day trip to explore some of Israel’s most unique destinations. 

History of the Dead Sea:

The Dead Sea formed thousands of years ago by fault lines shifting in the Earth’s crust, creating the basin where the Dead Sea is now located.

Floating in the Dead Sea:

Floating in the Dead Sea is THE most unique experience I have ever had in my life! Walking into the water you can feel a salty film coat your skin, if you have any cuts or scratches take a deep breath because it will sting!

Tips for visiting the Dead Sea:

- It is recommended to stay in the Dead Sea for only 15-20 minutes at a time so you don’t become dehydrated and be sure to drink lots of water afterwards.

- With the high salt concentrations, cuts and scrapes will burn.

Flight Path

- Wear long hair up in a bun, the salt will tangle your hair.

- The Dead Sea floor has a rough, rock salt surface instead of sand. If you have sensitive feet wear water shoes or flip flops to wade into the water.
