Each time that I show friends around Israel, I take them to Ein Gedi and I can say that no one is ever disappointed! On this one site you have one of the most beautiful kibbutz' in the country, a Dead Sea beach with lots of facilities and a nature reserve with an oasis There are also lots of other activities and everything that it is possible to do at the Dead Sea can be done on one site.
Of the three, I prefer the natural reserve. There are different types of walk to do but you don't have to take a long and difficult walk to find places to bathe. The reserve has two "wadis" (or valleys). The most visited and easiest to get to is Wadi David. The second, which is a little wilder, is Wadi Arugot. To really enjoy Ein Gedi nature reserve during your trip to Israel , it's better to go there in the middle of week and not in summer.
