Don’t know how to swim, don’t worry, Dead Sea water will let your whole body flow on the top of water. What a life experience is. Have to be there once of life time.

The natural beauty and wonder of the dead sea is a given. Meditating of God's creation by the sea is so uplifting

As we approached the Dead Sea ready to experience the buoyant waters, the winds began to stir up. A man implored us to leave, but we didn't immediately believe him. Within seconds, the winds were so intense, I could barely stand. Pellets of ice began to fall. Sheet metal from a truck was flapping dangerously & flew off. We made it back to the hotel, but all roads were closed due to flash floods. A number of school children had been swept away. It was absolutely numbing.
Apparently, these sudden changes in weather occur in this area, so be aware.

It's a definitely unforgettable experience to get in to the water. It's the most salty water we have ever seen and tasted! If you want to swim, you have to make sure there is a shower when you go out. Otherwise it's so hard to stay with all the salt on you.

Find the entrance to the bus station and then find platform 4. There you will see the 486 timetable. Queue up and buy a ticket from the driver. Do not bother going to the ticket office as they will sell you the wrong ticket. The bus will drop you on the main road, a short walk from Kalya beach. Entry ticket was NIS 59 I think. Prices after the entrance are in USD for some strange reason. Enjoy !
Going back is easy, just sit at the opposite bus stop and one will be along shortly.

Aside from floating in the dead sea, the scenery around the sea is beautiful. Tranquil blue waters and a mountain back drop.

We got a beautiful rainbow on the way back. The sea is receded dramatically over the years and will continue to do so unless the Jordanians and Israelis find a solution (developing a Locke system from the red sea is being proposed)

WOW is all I can say.What an experience.The water is so salty that it is very easy to sit down lay back and just float.
The minerals and salts have been used for health products and there is a factory on the Jordon side as well as the Israel side that mines the sea.
Big problem is that Israel has divereted water and the water level is slowly falling.
This is once in a lifetime event so if you can do it DO IT!

The Dead Sea is quite amazing. It is losing about 1500mm of water a year which is increasing the salinity. The water tastes awful so be prepared if you want to do the taste test! Just dip your finger in NOT a mouthful! It is amazing how the buoyancy works. My husband who is unable to float in other water, floated like a cork.
Sadly tourism impact raises its ugly head here too! Plastic rubbish litters the beach. The tourists also cover themselves in mud, sit in the provided chairs and then those filthy chairs for others to use instead of rinsing them off.
It is my opinion that the authorities who keep an eagle eye on the bathers due to the obvious hazards of the water, employ others to keep the coastline clean and to clean the chairs.

This is simply a must do, and previously I would not have said that but now, having experienced the sea I would advise everyone to go.

The sea is almost like magic, at one point as was standing straight up and floating without any effort, no treading water. In fact it’s hard not to float!

It’s well known the sea is a reducing resource, due to health care and drought, so get there before you can’t experience it.

The Dead Sea is 400m below sea level and it's true it takes NO effort to float like you've seen in all the photos! We got in at the public beach - Kalia Beach, where there are HEAPS of shops, little food stores, a good restaurant/café, showers and change-rooms. You must be VERY careful NOT to swallow any water or get it in your eyes etc. But the experience of floating with any cares and covering yourself in mineral-rich mud is a unique experience...
