Go ahead: Try to sink in the Dead Sea. Due to its dense mineral content, you can’t. But bobbing effortlessly on its surface is said to be therapeutic for many ills, and it’s indescribably relaxing.
Surrounded by luxury hotels and spas, and spectacular desert scenery, you’ll see below why the Dead Sea is a such a prized resort for Israelis and tourists from all over.
