There is nothing like the Dead Sea in Jordan in the world. The Dead Sea is more than a thousand years old and has been associated with mythical legends since biblical times. It is renowned for its unique composition, density and salt content, therapeutic effects and the mud found at its shores.
The Dead Sea is the lowest place on Earth, about 405 meters below sea level. The Dead Sea is also the saltiest body of water in the world, with over 30% salinity. This is why people feel buoyant when they float in it, due to its density.
The Dead Sea is famous for its therapeutic properties and unique mineral composition. In addition, the mud from the Dead Sea is the most sought-after cosmetic ingredient in the world.
The Dead Sea has been an attractive vacation destination for thousands of years. Archaeological evidence shows that people have been visiting this area since prehistoric times.
Today, visitors come from around the world for its therapeutic qualities and adventure activities like floating in the water or windsurfing on its salty surface. Its medicinal properties are thanks to its mineral content, including magnesium, calcium, potassium, and sodium chloride(salt). The minerals help with skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, rheumatism and arthritis.
The Dead Sea has a rich history dating back to Biblical times, when King David hid from Saul in caves near the Dead Sea. Today, there are many attractions along the banks of this unique body of water including hotels, spas, beaches, museums and other attractions.
Visitors can take advantage of many options when planning their trip to Jordan, including day trips from Amman or overnight stays in hotels located near the Dead Sea or in other parts of Jordan such as Petra or Wadi Rum. There are also several tour operators that offer packages that include transportation from Amman, accommodations (including hotels), meals and activities at the Dead Sea area itself.
