Although there's no proof that Cleopatra actually bathed here, this spring-fed pool is very popular.

I recommend having a nice swim first in the Salty lakes, then go to Cleopatra pool to get rid of the salt, and relax your muscles in a nice warm water. You may enjoy the break for couple of hours at one of the restaurants...More
