Safety Rules in the Dead Sea
The Dead Sea, as everybody knows, has very high salt concentrations.
The caution sign at the entrance to the public beach is in Hebrew, so here is a brief translation:
- Take care not to drink or swallow the Dead Sea Water.
- Take care to avoid getting water in your eyes; this may be harmful.
- Do not attempt to dive or even dip your head in the water.
- If you ingest water go to the first aid station or to the lifeguard.
- In order to float on your back, first reach a sitting position floating in the water.
Do take care, but don't be afraid: just relax, float on the water and enjoy yourself!

Salt of the dead sea
The dead sea water is very salty !

The sun in the Desert
The sun here is very strong so take a good hat , sun glasses , sun cream and be careful.
Also a lot is water is a great idea !
Driving to En boqeq
The road to the dead sea and En Boqeq is very dangerous because its from +500 meters to -400 meters and a curvy road...
Drive carefully so you will be able to enjoy your stay here.
Beware of the cliffs
Don't try to walk close to cliffs - you might fall.
Dont try to walk on places you shouldnt or you will find yourself going down and fast.
Don't try to feed the animals or scare them.
This is their natural environment and if you will be quiet you will enjoy those animals.
It is a very beautiful thing to see.
No entrance Trails
When you walk in the area and see the No entrance sign - Don't enter !
This sign is because there is a cliff or dangerous path.
You should take a lot of water with you because it is very hot there and on the track you should drink a lot.
