There are many reasons why a trip to the Dead Sea can be very fruitful and relaxing. The destination is famous for being one of the best – and oldest – natural spas in the world, attracting millions of people who are looking for natural remedies and a memorable trip every year.
The Dead Sea is also famous for its beautiful and unique beaches. The beaches you will find on your visit are different from other beaches in popular travel destinations. If you are planning a trip to the Dead Sea, here are the top five Dead Sea beaches to add to your itinerary.
Biankini Beach is home to fantastic holiday resorts that is always ready to pamper you to the max. The beach has a Moroccan style and ambience to it; it even has a Moroccan restaurant right next to it. Time your visit correctly and you will be able to enjoy a true Dead Sea experience here.
Another popular beach in the Dead Sea is the Kalia Beach, a beach operated by Kibbutz Kalia. It is situated north of the Biankini Beach, and it is only a few minutes away from Jerusalem. The view from Kalia beach is breathtaking.
You can visit DeadSea.com to learn more about this beach, as it is ranked by the site as the top beach in the Dead Sea. This is also a beach where you will be surrounded by great amenities and plenty of the area’s natural mud.
The beaches at Ein Bokek are beautiful, but their beauty is not the main reason why you want to visit this beach on your trip to the Dead Sea. Some of the best resorts are found in the area and its location down from the southern Dead Sea makes it perfect for a relaxing holiday with the entire family.
Neve Midbar Beach
If you are feeling adventurous, Neve Midbar is the beach to go to. It is further north and it isn’t as commercial as other beaches in the area. You will find great local restaurants to try, plenty of opportunities for long walks and hikes and, of course, some basic amenities to keep you comfortable.
The Neve Midbar beach is also famous for its younger crowd. This is where many backpackers and young travellers from around the world gather and connect with each other. There are barbecues and a bar if you want to spend the entire day – and night – at this beach.
Ein Gedi is a beach that you can access freely. As a public beach, Ein Gedi can get pretty crowded at times. Don’t let the crowds scare you from visiting Ein Gedi, though, since the warm water and the large picnic area are well worth a trip to this beach.
Visit any of these beaches and you can enjoy natural mud treatments and other activities. A trip to the Dead Sea beaches is a nice addition to your itinerary; in fact, you’ll want to return to your favourite beaches after that first visit.
