Just in time for the Passover and Easter holidays, a new, stone 4k boardwalk and free, accessible public beaches with full facilities have opened in the hotels area of the Dead Sea. The promenade will eventually extend another ten kilometers, to include a total of 16 public beaches, connecting Ein Bokek and Hamei Zohar, along the southern part of the Dead Sea. This is part of a major new leisure and hotel complex that is planned for the region.
Visitors to the Dead Sea - the lowest place on earth and the world’s largest natural spa known for its unique wellness properties since Biblical times – can now enjoy full access to wide, sandy beaches, walking, jogging, cycling or even taking a Segway along the entire length of the new boardwalk. The new beaches are all free to the public, with facilities that include beach chairs, showers, canopies, sports equipment, children’s playgrounds and more.
The beaches are accessible for the disabled, with special wheelchairs and trails that can take visitors right into the waters of the Dead Sea. Special illumination allows tourists and visitors to walk the boardwalk at night, while at the same time enjoying the very special atmosphere at the Dead Sea.
