This is an odd one. You hear about the salinity and the mud and the resorts but that really doesn't explain it all. Some people find their experience less than pleasant. I met a man while in Wadi Musa (Petra) who said the Dead Sea...More

No fish and no life in this water... because rate of salt too much ...so there's no any kind of fish. You can swim there but don't touching water of your Head. So beautiful... quite... romantic... medical water.

Good idea: Taking a bath in the water full of minerals of the Dead Sea Bad idea: Do it after the canyoning tour in Wadi Mujib - it will be painful ;). A short stay at the Dead Sea is more fun than healthy. It...More

It is a very warm area. I was there at 4:30 pm and it was 40degree C! It is an experience everyone should do. Salted water, you float, the lowest point on Earth.. Just something you need to do once in your life.

The Dead Sea isn't super exciting but it's worth seeing such an unusual body of water. The water feels greasy and you float easily. Do not get water in eyes or mouth. The beaches don't appear to be maintained well and there was lots of...More

Nice place you must visit but be careful of youngsters who might be overwhelmed by the intense saltiness of the water and tingling sensation when they enter the water. Make sure to capture the sunset from water level as well as from higher ground.

We stayed at the Kempinski Ishtar (highly recommended), which had its private section of the Dead Sea. It was great fun overall, but as this is no regular water experience, it's good to read up a bit on what to expect before jumping in. :p...More

A taxi should be about JD30. Or catch a Jett bus from 7th circle, perhaps. All the resorts are attractive, but perhaps you might like to save money and try a day ticket to Amman beach or O2. These are purely Dead Sea... More
