If you just want to experience floating in the Dead Sea without paying exorbitant day use fees at resorts, Amman Beach is a good option. 16JD will get you through the door, and they have freshwater (cold) showers so you can rinse the salt off. They have basic but sufficient amenities if you just want to experience swimming in the Dead Sea for an hour or two on your way. I would not recommend spending more than a half a day at the Dead Sea anyways.

If you want to have a swim in the Dead Sea in Jordan you have three options; stay in one of the luxory resorts along the Northern shore, pay the entrance fee to the Amman Beach or do it for free more or less anywhere else. The resorts accept day visitors, but it's still more expensive then Amman Beach, which charge 16 JD (20€) per person. Amman Beach may be the best option as you don't want to access the sea from the free beaches and reamain salty for the rest of the day as there's no showers in those places. Well, said that, Amman Beach is the best option if you just want to spend a few hours by the lake feeling how it feels to float like a cork, There's separate changing rooms for men and women, which is included in the entrance fee, but you pay extra for towels and lockers. The beach itself is not more than 50 meters and you go down there just to have the dip in the sea. There's usually someone selling mud from a bucket by the beach, so you can cover yourself and get healed.... After the dip in the Dead Sea and a shower, you can relax by the fresh water pools.There's a couple of stalls selling coffee and softy drinks. There's also a popular restaurant serving a buffet lunch (approx 12 JD) and it can really be recommended as it's a good way to get to know local specialities. If you don't have your own vechicle, you can easily get a taxi from Amman. Expect to pay not more than 35 JD for the trip, which included a 2-3 hour waiting time. The driver gets into the area for free and most probably gets a free coffee for bringing your there....

I was not too impressed with the Amman beach even though I had an enjoyable experience swimming in the sea. I visited mid-March 2012 and had no issues with flies or bugs. Entry was 16JD, towels and locker keys (from the unmarked dark wooden shack) were an additional 1.5JD each + deposit.

There are two large unheated pools in addition to the beach. The beach is fairly rocky with some sand but there are numerous plastic pool chairs for use. It and the water was mostly clean of trash. 19JD with towel and locker seemed pretty expensive for a small rocky beach with rundown change and bathroom facilities. Avoid the male showers and use the outdoor ones instead.

It's a decent place to get to know the Dead Sea, and there is also a pool and basic services. The standards are not the best, but these are proportonial for what to pay as fee.
However, I have to say that it was full of local and foreign (from neighbours areas) men sat in chairs with cameras (both pictures and video) and they kept recording the western female tourist.
I'm a man, I travelled with my wife and another couple. I've lived for more than a year in an Arab country and I ad the chance to travel a lot to non Western countries (including of course Arab ones) and I've never felt so uncomfortable as this time, even though I was not the one being filmed. It even happened that a local Jordan man almost fought with them because, while filming my wife and my friend's wife, his daughter passed by and of course he did not want het daughter to be in any video...
It's a pity, because what you will finally do is being all the time looking at them to see f they are filming or not (what's actully impossible, as they are so many!)
