Best Dead Sea Beaches

Touring the Holy Land

Which are the best Dead Sea Beaches? So here is a shortlist of the beaches worth going to while touring Israel and the Dead Sea area. Some guides are recommending going to the beaches that are part of the West Bank and fall under Palestinian territory. But I don’t recommend you to go there. These beaches like Kalia Beach are not fun. Usually packed with people that come from big day tour buses from all over Israel. And the facilities are so so minus. In others words, there are better beaches to go to.

Ein Bokek

The area of Ein Bokek where the hotel strip is to be found. In my opinion, a much better area to stop and dip in the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea. Personally, I think all the beaches that belong to one of the local hotels are by far much cleaner, quieter and if you want to add in a relaxing massage you can schedule one using one of the Hotel’s websites. You can bundle it with a package to use the hotel felicities that are far better than the public ones.

Best Dead Sea Beaches: Istorel Dead Sea

One of the beaches worth checking out is the one that belongs to Isrotel Dead Sea or the one Just in front of Isrotel Ganim. Both belong to the Isrotel chain of hotels and at least according to Israeli standards, they are considered good. Don’t try to compare them with what you know from abroad or the US because it wouldn’t match up to the same level. But compared to that you can find around here it the best there is.

Ein Bokek Beach

In front of Isrotel Ganim Dead Sea, there a public beach, which is nice and clean. Just next to it you can find reasonable restaurants and air-conditioned shopping malls where you can get all your necessities. In addition, it has an attractive promenade, lifeguards (yes even in the Dead Sea), shade shelters, open-air showers, gym equipment, changing rooms, bathrooms, and night-time lighting. Facilities such as beach chairs are reserved for hotel guests. For the all best beaches in Israel click here!
