The Salt

It is evident that grows shallow sea: near the water salt deposits still quite clean.

The Dead Sea is shrinking. The Dead Sea is shrinking because nearly every source of water that feeds into this iconic tourist destination has been cut off, diverted or polluted over the last half century.

“This is a completely man-made disaster,” says Gidon Bromberg, the Israel director of Friends of the Earth Middle East, an international environmental group. “There is nothing natural about this.”

By 2025, the  Dead Sea is expected to be at 1,440 feet below sea level.

The shrinking of the Dead Sea has become an issue of grave concern for environmentalists, industries that produce Dead Sea-related products and tourism sector, which worries that the visitors who come here from all over the world will disappear along with the sea.




Warm coast of the Dead Sea is one of the best destinations to go on vacation for treatment and rest. Remarkable mineral content of the sea water, the very low content of allergens in the atmosphere and the admirable climate at this great place have specific health effects.
