The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is a true wonder of the natural world. As well as being one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world, the Dead Sea is located at Earth’s lowest point, 410 meters below sea level. The Dead Sea is so-called because its hypersaline waters are inhospitable to marine life. In this rare environment we find mineral-rich salt and mud, hypersaline water, reduced solar radiation and a higher concentration of oxygen. For millennia the Dead Sea has attracted people looking for relaxation and optimum well-being.

And today the Dead Sea is as popular as ever, drawing visitors from around the world in search of natural healing and rejuvenation
