Overview

The most northern Dead Sea beach on the western (Israeli) side, Just 25 minutes drive from Jerusalem. Simple and very accommodating beach; an open cafe with special water-cooling fans enables a 360° view over the Judean and the Jordanian desert and the Dead Sea. The shore is large and allows shaded spots alongside sunbathing chairs. Another snack bar is located next to shore. Health treatments are available.

The beach itself is very small, but you can find chairs for sunbath and showers. Plastic shoes are recommended in water, because there are a lot of stones. Respect the marked teritory in water, to avoid accidents caused by stones or deep invisible underwater holes....More
