    Dead Sea. I've had the privilege of seeing many breathtakingly beautiful places in the world but for me, Israel will always be the most beautiful. I have no idea what it is about it that's so beautiful but it captures my heart a little more with each visit. Have the honour of going back for the fourth time this summer :)

Dead Sea, Israel. The water is so clear, so pretty. and the rock formations are really lovely.

Dead Sea?. Oh my dog! I am terribly sorry. How was it? I didn't even know it was sick. Doctors must be right when they say that too much salt is not healthy.

Dead Sea from the air. You can actually see a bit of the Mediterranean see on the left - just come to show how small is this country

The Dead Sea, Israel - It is called the Dead Sea because of the heavy salt content; nothing will grow in its waters. The salt also keeps you afloat, you cannot sink; and the high salt content holds great medicinal properties.

The dead sea in Israel..no fish in this sea..too salty..but great for the skin and if u can read a book while u float around...Fun!!

I just want to immerse myself in the Dead Sea! This is definitely being added to my bucket list!!

Columns of salt rising from the extremely saline waters of the Dead Sea.

Dead Sea, Israel, The lowest place on earth.

The Dead Sea is a salt lake situated between Israel and the West bank to the west, and Jordan to the east. It is 420 meters (1,378 ft) below sea level and its shores are the lowest point on the surface of the Earth on dry land. The Dead Sea is 330 m (1,083 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. It is also the world's second saltiest body of water, after Lake Assal in Djibouti, with 30 percent salinity. It is 8.6 times saltier than the ocean.

Floating on dreams and whispers, girls from a West Bank village cool off in the salt-laden waters of the Dead Sea. With its main tributary, the Jordan, at less than a tenth of its former volume, the inland sea has dropped some 70 feet since 1978.
