Trip Planner:   Middle East  /  Jordan  /  Dead Sea

Dead Sea, Jordan

4.4
#3 of 22 in Parks in Jordan
One of the world's more unusual bodies of water, Dead Sea sits at one of the lowest elevations on Earth. Rich in salt and in history, the lake is nearly ten times saltier than any ocean. Feel the peculiar sensation of floating in water some 428 m (1,404 ft) below sea level, just as Queen Cleopatra did in the 1st century BCE. Surrounded by dozens of resorts with both private and public beaches, the sea remains a favorite destination for taking dips in the mineral-rich waters, framed by the Judean desert and mountains.
