One of the cheaper (still a hefty 20JDs per person) ways to access the Dead Sea but the catastrophic toilets/changing rooms and extortionate price of everything on sale was a total turn off. As previously mentioned, you cannot swim in the dead sea so a brief float is all its worth as far as I am concerned. There are nice... More

We spent about three hours at this public beach site to experience the dead sea. It costs 20jd for other nationalities and offers a few pools showers and a small beach at the dead sea. The place is nicely located so that it can be reached by car from Amman within ~1.5h. The shower and restrooms were not very clean... More

This definitely has to be your choice in case you are not planning to stay near dead sea for a day or 2. The entrance fee is 20 JD and it is the least among all those that are present near dead sea. Incase you are wondering why do you need to pay, the water of dead sea is very... More

Good spot for the dead sea, 20 JOD entry fee, you cannot have your own food, water is okay. I got some mud all over me for 3 JOD, not sure if their souvenir shop is expensive however overall experience was great. They have dressing rooms and shower.

The entry is indeed a rip-off, but few other alternatives are available around. While the upper part of the complex with swimming pools looks fine, the beach itself is more like an excavation site, with holes and heaps of sand scattered around. It is also not very clean and has a rather narrow access to the sea, so can easily... More

It seems the only way to experience the Dead Sea is to pay to enter a resort. This as it turns out is the cheapest option at 20JD, rather than 40 or 80JD for the other options. The strip of beach was pretty small and grim, and the less said about the changing rooms the better! The smell was terrible,... More

This was my only disappointment in beautiful Jordan, I highly recommend to avoid it! They make you pay JOD20 just for the entrance (which is a FORTUNE for Jordanian standards), and when you get in you realize that beach is a rubbish dump. It's super dirty, full of stray dogs, and those people are just trying to rip you off... More

I agree with other reviewers that at 20JD the beach is overpriced. Apart from access to the beach, what you get for your money is the use of changing rooms, lockers which don't lock (luckily we could leave our valuables with our driver), showers with limited water pressure, swimming pool and cafe. We were warned that it can get crowded... More

Visiting the Dead Sea is a must when visiting Jordan and in the end it is quite hard to do it anywhere other than at Amman Beach. According to the guide book, there are two beaches, one cheaper and scruffier than the other and I suspect this would have been perfectly adequate but our taxi driver clearly thought he should...
