Dead Sea Waters

Spend some time floating in the Dead Sea and youíll enjoy how the waters nourish your skin, stimulate your circulatory system and ease any rheumatic discomfort or metabolic disorders you may have. This is partly because of the unique minerals found in the area. Many, such as magnesium, calcium, bromide and potassium are well known for the feelings of relaxation they induce. And donít forget the high salt content that enables everyone Ė including non-swimmers - to float unaided.

The Sun
The Dead Sea is the only place on earth where you can sunbathe for extended periods with little or no sunburn. Harmful ultraviolet rays are filtered through natural layers of atmosphere: an evaporation layer that exists above the Dead Sea, and a rather thick ozone layer.

We always recommended that visitors maintain careful and progressive exposure to the sun.

Thermo-mineral Springs
Soaking in the many heated sulphur pools found along the shores stimulates the circulatory system, encouraging an increase in the oxygen supply to the blood.

Black Mud
A signature element of the Dead Sea, black mud is a homogeneous mixture of the Dead Sea minerals, important organic elements from the shoreline as well as mud. Indulging in a black mud body wrap has both cosmetic and therapeutic benefits ó known to cleanse and stimulate the skin, relieve muscle and emotional tensions, improve blood circulation and ease rheumatic pain.

Air quality
Take a deep breath and enjoy the regionís miraculous dry, unpolluted, pollen-free air. Due to the constant evaporation caused by high temperatures the air contains high concentrations of several minerals such as bromide that provides a genuinely relaxing effect.

Because of the high barometric pressure associated with the area, by comparison the atmosphere the Dead Sea contains around approximately 8% more oxygen than anywhere else on earth. This, together with a low humidity makes breathing easier and more comfortable.

Natural Mineral Springs
Drink the purified spring water or bathe in many of the cool waterfalls and streams that flow from the foothills of the Judean hills.
