Welcome to Ein Bokek

The three most commonly heard languages here are Hebrew, Arabic and Russian – the area is hugely popular not only with locals (Jews, Arabs and Druze) but also with immigrants and tourists from the former Soviet Union.

Unlike the beaches along the lake's northern basin, Ein Bokek fronts evaporation pools (kept full by Dead Sea Works pumps) rather than the open sea. That's why its lakeshore is not receding and sinkholes are not a problem here.
