Dead Sea, Jordan

#2 of 7 in Nature in Jordan
Water Body Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Dead Sea Region

You can choose from a number of hotels in the Dead Sea Region of Jordan, chiefly lining the lake coastline and the Dead Sea Highway. High-end resorts mostly concentrate in the northeastern part of the lakeside, offering on site spas and swimming pools, as well as a view of the Jerusalem skyline across the water. If you're looking to visit on the weekend or during the holidays, it's best to book ahead. Since budget-friendly accommodation is rare, a thrifty traveler might want to day trip from the capital, or stay in the nearby town of Madaba.
