Swimming in the dead sea is a great experience. Salt water is really very salty, so beware of your eyes.

My dad and I had tickets for the Dead Sea resort ( a hotel next to many others like Hilton, Marriott, etc. to name a few). Even though the outside temperature was 19 degrees Celsius, the water was warm and we weren’t as cold as...More

We visited the public beach on our way from Wadi Rum to Madaba. It was a clean pool complex but we didn't try the restaurant. Easy access to the 'beach' area and a small charge for the mud if you wanted to try it. Floating...More

We rented a car and drove from Jerusalem for an hour plus to see the Dead Sea. The drive was interesting but the destination less so. The Dead Sea is not readily accessible because climate change has lowered the water level to such a degree...More

Some people in our group were skeptical if you actually floated in the Dead Sea without trying to float. To their astonishment, they were wrong and they did float as soon as they were past their knees. The best way to experience the mineral-packed mud...More

One of the most amazing countries we have travelled in. Tour was by car with a driver and local guide at each destination. This was by far the best way to see the country and allowed us to stop for photos if we spotted something...More

If you are up for adventure the local style, don’t book a hotel to have the chance to float in the Dead Sea. Just park along the road, and climb down the steep bank with all the other locals. Wash off in the fresh water...More

One had read so much about Dead Sea and its therapeutic qualities, it was one of the reasons to visit Jordan. The experience I must say left us totally flattened just like our dip in the sea. We were lucky to experience the Dead Sea...More
