Treat yourself in mud and float in the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea beaches. 

The Dead Sea has many beaches at the. 

Although, most of the Dead Sea beaches are privately owned and charge entrance fees. 

This is partly due to the constantly changing level of the Dead Sea (each year it shrinks by 1-1.5 meters), which means that every few years the beach and the supporting services must move to a new location. 

Despite that, there are some public beaches. 

But if you’re visiting the Dead Sea as a "must" destination, it’s well worth paying a small amount to get the best possible experience while visiting. 

And if you are looking for something more wild and untouched by man it offers that also, but at your own risk. Here are the best Dead Sea beaches (from north to south): Kibbutz Kalia operates the northern-most beach at the Dead Sea. 

It features great facilities, including a bar (perhaps the lowest in the world), restaurant, gift shop, pool, changing room facilities, and towel rental. Kalia is friendly for all ages, and the sea has natural mud which is there for visitors to immerse themselves in. 

Don’t miss the 360-degree view over the desert. 

Kalia is just a 25-minute drive from Jerusalem 


Just south of Kalia Beach is Biankini Beach, and it has a Moroccan-style oasis and even holiday resort. 

Except the beach, Biankini has a traditional Moroccan restaurant and accommodation options. Keep in mind that during Israeli holiday periods, Biankini can get busy.


 The Dead Sea beaches at Ein Bokek, in the southern Dead Sea, are lined with resort hotels so they can be busy during the tourist season (April-June/September-November) season (as with the other beaches). Some beaches are going through restoration. But most of them are open and are in great shape with showers. Important info- Ein Gedi beach is closed permanently. Remember its illegal and not recommended (Dangerous) to bathe at wild beaches without a lifeguard.
