Situated 3km south of Kibbutz Ein Gedi, this spa – owned by the kibbutz – is a popular place to catch a float and coat yourself with invigorating natural black mud. The shoreline has receded 1.3km since the spa opened in 1984 so beach-goers take a little train (every 20 minutes) to the water’s edge. Wheelchair accessible.

The spa has six sulphur pools and a freshwater pool, and offers a range of natural beauty and massage treatments. There’s also a coffee shop and a restaurant. Lockers cost 18NIS, as does buying a towel.
