Dead Sea

It is ironic that this region of Israel is referred to as Dead when one considers the incredible landscape, the therapeutic properties of the air and mud and the luxurious spas that it is famous for!
The Dead Sea is so called because the salinity in the water prevents any forms of life from surviving in it. These salts and minerals have been proven to be extremely beneficial for those wanting to rejuvenate their skin and body. As well as a visit to the Dead Sea, which is a must for any visitor, there are additional places that are worth a visit, such as the Masada National Park which is a hugely fascinating historical and archaeological site and was home to Herod’s mountain fortress, the Qumran National Park, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found and the Ein Gedi Reserve which is a desert oasis situated between two canyons with beautiful waterfalls, pools, flora and fauna.
