Is there the special Dead Sea mud at the separate beach?

Just FYI - most of the beaches are closed due to sinkholes (as of early July).  We had to drive down to Ein Bokek from J-lem.

Things I did this week maybe it could help others.

Keneret  Go to the water right next to hotel rimonim (מלון רימונים) kosher beach....
Flyfish (crazy stuff) a must.
Someone drove us on a jet ski. (better then finding a place they let you drive yourself,this guy will give you more fun)

Park Begin (פארק בגין) Tel Aviv
Water ski -was excellent
It's a nice big park.

First Train Station J-m
Rented a bike,they have segway,electric,regular and double bikes....
Beautiful trail to drive along.

Natanya Beach
Drove to Natanya in the morning 4am caught נץ מנין and went to the beach at 6:30.
The weather was perfect,in middle of the day it gets too hot.
(make sure before you go to check the timing for men and women)

you can go to chof neve midbar for 50 nis at dead sea...only 30 min from jerusalem with no traffic or need to spend hour driving all the way down to ein bokek

no connection, but refael grill bar in tel aviv is highly recommended as well (machpud) best time is 7 as its empty and plenty of free parking right outside
