If you are in Israel Enot Tsukim Nature Reserve is a must-see.

Travelling across Israel with your loved ones? Make sure you don’t miss out on this incredible oasis in the heart of the desert! Enot Tsukim nature reserve is without a doubt one of Israel’s most unique and extraordinary spots for it is the lowest nature reserve in the world – full of life, color and beauty.

This rare and gorgeous reserve is located north of the Dead Sea (near Qumran and close to Ein Gedi, as well as many other sites in the Judean Desert) and makes for a fun and relaxing family day trip thanks to its spring waters flow, enchanting pools, and diverse wildlife (certainly not something you’d expect to find in the middle of the desert and at the heart of the lowest oasis in the world).

Here you can enjoy the beautiful nature while swimming in 3 pools alongside colorful fishes and having a fabulous picnic (there are plenty of picnic tables and shaded areas within the reserve). The site also offers a hiking route, the “hidden reserve” (only available with a designated tour guide), view of the retreating Dead Sea and an archaeological site from the Second Temple period that is a real gem (archaeological ruins of an impressive Herodian complex).
