Play in the mud for the sake of your health!
Among the laughs, games and fun you will have while exploring the Dead Sea, You’ll be getting healthier with every breath you take.
Whether you do so for your health, or just to have a good laugh, floating on the Dead Sea is an experience like no other.
First, visitors cover themselves with the mineral-rich mud that lines the shores. Most beaches have vats of this mud conveniently places by the shoreline, with some beaches even warming it up during the winter months! This mud is great for your skin, as well as being therapeutic for skin conditions & arthritis.
Once covered in mud, you enter the extremely salty waters of the Dead Sea. When your body reaches a certain buoyancy, you rise to the top and it feels as if you’re being cradled by an invisible force.
After your float & soak, your skin will feel amazing – it’s nature’s own spa experience!
Not only is a visit to the Dead Sea great for your skin, the air in the region has its own benefits.
Due to being so far below sea level, there are extra layers of atmosphere that filter out the destructive aspects of sunlight, letting only the good rays through. Most of the year you don’t need sunscreen, allowing you to get that vital hit of Vitamin D without the unhealthy side effects.
The air also has more oxygen than at sea level, and the evaporating elements work on your central nervous system to help you relax.
This is one of the main reasons the Dead Sea resort of Ein Bokek is so popular for health/spa tourism.
Israel is home to spectacular marine attractions along with endless snorkelling opportunities and spectacular diving.

Along with gorgeous reefs and incredible marine life, there are many areas to enjoy diving. Eilat on the Red Sea is the obvious choice, but there are also diving opportunities on the Mediterranean Sea.
For instance, diving off the port of Caesarea is quite intriguing, as there are archaeological ruins to explore from the time of King Herod. Both the Red and Mediterranean Seas’ offers incredible diving, with protected coral reefs teeming with life, so you’ll be spoiled for choice!

Israel is one of the few places on Earth that offers sites that are of equal interest to pilgrims and scholars.
For example, you can explore the city of Akko, where Richard the Lionheart built his base of operation for the Crusades. It’s a city of many layers, with the underground excavations uncovering the Crusader past, to the above ground city offering gems from the Ottoman Empire.
Just a few miles south of Akko is Haifa and it’s spectacular Bahia Gardens, built up the side of Carmel Mountain as a shrine to the founder of the Bahai religion. Its many sculpted terraces truly are a site to behold.
Inland in the North of Israel is not to be missed, as the combination of natural beauty & impressive religious sites are well worth your time. There is even a hiking/biking trail called the Gospel Trail that follows in the footsteps of Jesus, going from Nazareth to the Sea of Galilee.
