The Dead Sea borders Israel, Jordan and the West Bank and is a salt-water lake whose banks are over 400 metres below the sea. The renowned hypersaline water of the lake makes floating on the eater easy and its black mud is popularly used for cosmetic and therapeutic purposes. On the Jordanian side, visiting the Dead Sea is possible both from Aquaba and Amman. Swimming in the Dead Sea is a unique experience and if you have had that on your bucket list for long, you are sure to cherish it forever.

Dead Sea Reviews & Ratings

  • Amazing bucket list experience but don't get the sea water in your eyes - it hurts like hell!! So nice to relax with zero gravity and maximum buoyancy (is that how you spell it??), amazing views too. Recommend wearing shoes or trainers in the sea as it is painful to walk on the salt crystals. Very hot place!

  • Definitely an awesome experience! Always bring sunblock and only stay at the authorized beaches to avoid risk of sinkholes. Be careful not to swallow the water (you might end up in an emergency room) or getting it into your eyes (if this happens, just don't rub them and get to the first source of fresh water and rinse).

  • The dead sea is a relay silly place. Lots of people go there for no apparent reason. The water is horrible and salty. The heat is unbearable, and the view is so so. I have been going there with tourists every once in a while. They all seem to have a good time. The water has medicinal qualities. So they say. The beauty of spending time in the dead sea is that it cures you of all your needs to ever leave home. The sea is evaporating rapidly, so in 500 years it will be all gone. Good riddance. the picture is not actually from the dead sea, it is from the British museum, but its as good as it gets.

  • One of the most interesting places on earth. Apart from the fact that the water is particularly salted in which there are not only very rare life forms, the water is extremely bitter and I do not recommend it to be tasted by anyone (for a whole day the bitter taste remains). You can bathe at the seaside resorts but you have to be careful not to get water into your eyes. The place is very beautiful and picturesque. The hotels and locations on the waterfront are modern and offer all the comfort you need.
