The only thing that the Dead Sea used to be famous for was the slightly ludicrous photographs of a man reading a newspaper whilst floating on the sea. But there is definitely more to the Dead Sea than floating. At 1300 feet below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on the planet. People have woken up to the fact that this landlocked area of mineral enriched water has therapeutic and healing qualities, a fact known since Biblical times. People on Sharm el Sheikh holidays are catching a plane and coming here to take the waters.

For thousands of years this area has attracted people from around the world. It has even been said that Cleopatra travelled hundreds of miles to take advantage of the healing qualities of the mud in the sea. The mud and salt in the sea is now internationally known, being sold to spas around the world.

If you’re on Naama bay holidays, take a bus journey or short flight to Israel to enjoy the benefits of the Dead Sea. Thousands of others make this trip every year, thanks to the low cost and ease. Also be sure to visit one of the natural spas in the area.

As well as the beautification aspect, the Dead Sea has become a major centre for health research and treatment. The seawater has a high concentration of salt and other minerals. The high atmospheric pressure at this depth is especially good for respiratory conditions such as cystic fibrosis. The low ultra violet light levels are good for psoriasis sufferers as it means that they can sunbathe for longer without getting burnt. People on Sharm el Sheikh holidays fly here just for the treatment.

Nearby at Ein Gedi are the famous hot springs, a phenomena found only in Israel. The thermal springs have a constant temperature of 38C and have the highest concentration of bromine in the world. Bromine helps reduce blood pressure and relax the nervous system. The salts in the water help to detoxify the system too. The spas here offer massages and aromatherapy sessions.
