The Dead Sea is a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley, and its main tributary is the Jordan River. Its surface and shores are 430.5 metres below sea level, Earth's lowest elevation on land.
Floating in the Dead Sea is one of the country's great natural experiences. Floating is the right word for it: with an eye-stingingly high salt content it is virtually impossible to swim in the viscous waters of a sea that is 415m below ‘sea level’, and equally impossible to sink. The experience is usually accompanied by a mud bath, a bake in the sun and a luxurious, health-giving spa treatment at one of the modern pleasure palaces lined up along the Dead Sea’s shores.
The beach, 2km south of the main resort strip, gives affordable access to the Dead Sea. The grounds are attractively landscaped and the beach is clean
A place where the blended hues of tinted skies magically reflect upon the salted surface of dead waters; the awe-inspiring views over the lowest point on earth shall teleport you well beyond the magical horizon. The reds, pinks, oranges and purples infused with golden swirls amid the clouds - a scene designed to inspire - as you witness this magical visual transformation unfolds.
Wadi Mujib is a canyon that towers above the Mujib River and stretches along 70 kilometers. Sections of Wadi Mujib also cover the Mujib Biosphere Reserve.
