Mineral Beach at the Dead Sea. You can pay a lot of money for Dead Sea mud treatments, or you can go to public Mineral Beach and apply the mud yourself. It's a day trip from Jerusalem and you can easily get in Ein Gedi and Masada in the same day. The mud really did make our skin soft! Not being mud treatment folks normally, we were pleasantly surprised. Warm even in November, (and not crowded) we think we picked the perfect time to go.
