The Dead Sea is famous for various reasons: it is the lowest point on earth (below sea level!), the water is so salty that you even read a newspaper while you float and its mud has amazing benefits for the skin! It is also a beautiful place surrounded by many attractions you definitely can’t miss on your trip to Israel.
