We stayed at the Holiday Inn, which gave us access to the Dead Sea via their "beach". Other than that, it would have cost us almost as much to gain access to the public "beaches" along the coastline. As it was, the first day was quite choppy out on the water due to a reasonably string breeze. The staff wouldn't... More

An absolute must do! I did this from a private hotel which was nice, it had the mud and everything available down there. Not sure how you can do this if just for the day, but I recommend it.

Was here in 2004 and later. Actually went for a swim to check off a bucket list item and found it exhilarating. Was then taken by our driver to a hot spring shower to wash all the salt off, and there is a lot of salt. Looks like ice around the shoreline on the rocks.

The mud bath and the walk on the sea experience is worth the travel. Life time experience and a must visit. World heritage

Dead sea causes mixed feelings, from enthusiasm to disappointment. Enthusiasm causes Its surface and shores which are 429 meters below sea level and its 34.2% salinity. Disappointment causes its water smell - water is greasy and smells of sulfur. Visited in 2014.

I heard a lot about floating in the Dead Sea, but the reality is so much better. It's unbelievable how much you float in this water! You can even stand inside the water. Don't taste it though, it's terrible! And avoid specially the eye area as it will make your eyes burn like never before. The mud is also a... More

You see the photographs of people floating with their hands in the air, but until you do it yourself, you will not understand the feeling. It is a unique, unreal experience. Just as a gimmick, try the mud too. PS don't wash the mud off your face in the Dead See ! Your eyes will burn like crazy.

This should be in everyone's bucket list. Floating in Dead Sea is an awesome experience and one of the top "Things to do in Jordan". Dont forget to apply the rich Dead Sea mud available on the beach. Keep the mud on your skin for 15/20 mins and then soak in the dead sea. You will get baby soft and... More

We spent one day near the Dead Sea and thoroughly enjoyed the sunset as we floated in the sea. We started by slathering our bodies with the rich mud, and then rinsed off while soaking in the sea. Be VERY careful not to get the water in your eyes, mouth, or nose - it's beyond salty and will hurt. Our... More
