It's amazing experience, having yourself floating on the water without doing any efforts. The Dead sea, around 1 hour by car from Amman. There is no public transport to come to this place. Taxi or private car is the only options. To make it cheaper, I shared the cost with two travelers from Germany and Japan. The hostel where I... More

I have always wanted to visit the dead sea since as long as I could remember. We went to Amman for a weekend and wanted to pack as much in as we possibly could. We hit the dead sea around 5:30pm, as were told the sun set at 6:30pm-thats a lie. We should have ideally got to the dead sea... More

At least we can say we have been in the Dead Sea. Have floated in the Great Salt Lake and it is much the same. We had to spend a lot of money to take the dip as we went onto the Marriott property. Not worth that part. We should have just gone to the public site. Be careful as... More

A visit to the Dead Sea is kind of mandatory while in Jordan. I went there with a small group that I had been horse riding with, so it was a very sociable experience. And indeed bobbing around in the high salinity water was an experience. However, the food in the restaurant was not impressive and the offers of rubbing... More

Stay at the Holiday Inn which had its own part on the beach, the staff were friendly and helpful, by applying the mud on to body. And then into the sea which was amazing to just lie there and float.

My family and I visited Dead Sea during our one-week Jordan tour in November 2014. We entered through Amman Beach Tourism Resort. Available facilities include toilets, a section for prayer, swimming pool, shower, restaurant and a souvenir shop. Dead Sea was very calm, there was no waves, it's just stagnant. The view from the beach was breathtaking. After a dip... More

We did this visit as part of a trip out from Maddaba for the afternoon. We entered through a major resort and our group had tickets bought for us which provided towels, change facilities, swimming pools, entrance to the Dead Sea and a meal afterwards. The floating on the Dead Sea was heaps of fun and everyone had a great... More

This was one of the best stops on our tour and a once in a lifetime opportunity. We were so excited we couldn't contain ourselves. First thing, you had to change into your swim suits if you hadn't already and just know ahead of time that it's a shared changing area. It's not too far a trek down to the... More
