Meet Enot Tsukim Nature Reserve

Magical pools and abundant vegetation at the foot of cliffs rising in the heart of the lowest oasis in the world. Enot Tsukim Nature Reserve in the northern Dead Sea is one of the most singular and interesting nature reserves in Israel, both because of the wealth of flora and fauna species it contains, and because of the remains of human activity that have been found here.

Main points of interest

  • Wading and bathing pools – the pools are near the entrance to the nature reserve, some 3 km to the south of the Kalya turn-off on Road 90 (the Dead Sea coast road).
  • Hiking trail – the marked trail passes through the diverse habitats and main sites of the nature reserve, with explanatory signs along the way.
  • “The hidden reserve” – the southern part of the nature reserve. This is the area where the Enot Tsukim springs rise, and a path has been marked out among the pools of clear water and profuse vegetation.
  • Observation point looking out at the retreat of the Dead Sea – the receding shoreline of the Dead Sea can be seen from a distance, giving an impression of the extreme changes that have taken place in recent decades.

detail

  • Wading and bathing pools – a number of pools fed by the springs, for recreation and leisure. There are a number of wading pools that are full all year round. The deep Tamar Pool is open for bathing in July and August every day of the week, and from mid-March until the end of November – only at weekends and on holidays. Lifeguard services are in place on the days that the Tamar Pool is open.
  • “The hidden reserve” – the southern part of the nature reserve. This is the area where the Enot Tsukim springs rise, and a path has been marked out among the pools of clear water and profuse vegetation. Entry to this part of the nature reserve is only allowed for groups accompanied by a guide. Tours of this area are held at the weekends, and at other times can be arranged in advance with the nature reserve management.
  • Observation point of the retreat of the Dead Sea – within the area of the nature reserve, the shoreline has receded by more than a kilometer, due to the Dead Sea drying up. Because of the danger of sinkholes and the instability of the ground, it is not possible to go down to the seashore itself, but it is possible to look from afar and see the great changes that have taken place in the area in recent decades.
