Introducing Dead Sea

The lowest point on Earth, the Dead Sea, often referred to as the Sea of Salt or Yam Ha-Melakh in Hebrew is a spectacular natural spectacle, offering breath-taking scenery of the Negev desert and mineral healing powers sought the world over. Its name comes from the fact that no fish can survive in its salinity. The mud’s well-known medicinal and health benefits are another effect of the saline water. The sea is a favourite destination for Israelis seeking a few days of vacation or utilising the water’s therapeutic qualities as it is only a one-hour drive from Jerusalem. Its beaches are amazing, with visitors immersing themselves in the mineral-rich mud and bathing in the saline ocean.

The area became famous when local Bedouin shepherds found some scrolls in the caves above the Dead Sea in the 1940s. The scrolls are incredibly important as they contained Hebrew Bible writings, close to two thousand years old.
