Dead Sea rating : 5 5 0 out of 5 / 55 votes

The Dead Sea is also known as the Salt Sea; it is located 1,300 feet below sea level and is blessed with a huge amount of naturally forming minerals as a result of the incredibly quick evaporation rate of the sea. Due to the high concentration of minerals in the water, visitors can float effortlessly on it's surface. It has been proven that the waters of the Dead Sea as well as the surroundings and mud from the sea are therapeutic for many people with skin disorders, joint problems and respiratory illnesses.
How to get there: From Jerusalem, the Dead Sea is an hour drive along highway 1. Alternatively, one can drive from Tel aviv to Arad and then from Arad to the heart of the Dead Sea region, Ein Bokek.
