While many recognize that the establishment of a Palestinian state could lead to the evacuation of isolated settlements, the 35 kilomoter strip of the northern dead sea might also be given over to Palestinian control in a two state solution.

Most of the resorts and hotels do not sit on the West Bank side of the Dead Sea, but there are 4 Israeli controlled beaches that would be given back to the Palestinians in final agreements according to the Geneva Initiative of 2003.
