Fodor's Review

On the Dead Sea, Kalia Beach (the name derives from kalium, the Latin name for potassium, found in abundance here) is the place to go for a free mud bath. Slather your whole body with the mineral-rich black mud and let it dry before showering. The beach also has chair and towel rentals, a gift shop, and snack bar. The adjacent kibbutz has a swimming pool and guest rooms. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (free); showers; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
