The Dead Sea is also probably the most phenomenal body of water on earth, and its surroundings the most wondrous.
At 400 meters below sea level, it is the lowest spot on earth. It is apart of the 6000km Great African Rift Valley. It is 55km long by 17.5km at its widest point, with a depth of up to 400m. This inland sea is flanked by the Judean Hills to the west and by the Mountains of Moab in Jordan to the east.
Thanks to the extraordinary climatic conditions and the unique properties of the water of the Dead Sea, En Boqeq has had remarkable success in the treatment particularly of skin diseases. In addition to the hotel bathing facilities along the beach there are also free public beaches.

Favorite thing: The colors of the dragonflies is amazing, the shimmering reds just sort of seem to move....then all of a sudden the dragonfly will alight and be PERFECTLY STILL...if you see it there you would think it was not a living thing...till it jumps into flight again...
