the Dead Sea is certainly what I expected, you actually float, but the area surrounding it, the way down to the sea and the way back are extremely complicated. they don't tell you that you need slippers if you don't want to burn your feet.

You will pay an entry fee but this is a clean beach at the northern end of the Dead Sea with lots of other facilities for changing, lockers, shopping. You can even ride a camel!
