Float in the Dead Sea, so-so facilities

Entry is 20 JOD per person and it is relatively convenient to Amman, Madaba, and Bethany. We went on a Friday, also beginning of lunar month, so it was PACKED with locals... read more

Public free beaches are made sure there is no fresh water to clean after your experience of floating in Dead sea, hence the other option is this place instead of spending fortune to the cheapest hotel, even after paying high sum, you need to another for towels, lockers, mud. Luckily they dont charge you for wash room or for swimming.... More

Swimming in the Dead Sea is an experience NOT to be missed! The feeling of floating standing up, without any need to tread water, is simply astonishing. This venue is easy to get to but a bit expensive. Its quite dirty, down at heel and the long, steep access from the changing rooms can make for difficult walking. There are... More

Entry is 20 JOD per person and it is relatively convenient to Amman, Madaba, and Bethany. We went on a Friday, also beginning of lunar month, so it was PACKED with locals. There is a two-level pool with water flowing over from top level to bottom and it is deep enough that people were diving into both or from one... More

If you don't have a lot of time, and you want to experience floating in the Dead Sea, this is the closest spot to Amman. However, if you have a few more hours, I recommend something a little more upscale. It costs 20JD to enter. The bathrooms are a little run down and dirty, nothing luxurious. If you have mobility...

Amman Tourist Beach is one of the more inexpensive day resorts in this location. It's a tad scuzzy, most stalls were out of toilet tissue in the women's room, not much hand soap available in the bathroom & few hand towels. The changing rooms had some odd looking dust-like growth or something like spider nests (?) on the inside of... More

If you are visiting Jordan, you will want to visit the Dead Sea, if nothing else for the sheer bragging rights of having been there. And if like us, you are visiting en route to other places, then this area is the best. It costs 20 JD per person to get in. Inside there is a swimming pool that was... More

We chose to come here because it was meant to be cheaper than a hotel. But by the time you pay 20JD to enter and then extra for the towel and the mud, I know of at least one hotel that would be cheaper. And they told us everything was included until after we'd paid for the ticket.

We wanted to experience a day at the Dead Sea without staying at any hotel resort. We found out that Amman Public Beach is the best value for money (still expensive though!) giving the high prices around Dead Sea. Entrance was 20 JOD/pers. (25 euro). It has 2 large pools (we found them clean), restaurant, bar (only non-alchoolic beer -... More

The dead sea itself is amazing. We are here to say a review about the beach which is unfortunately one of the worst places to be at. The beach is not clean, plastic bags and trash are all over the place. To enter there you will need to pay 4 JD if you were local and 20 JD if you... More
