It would be a travesty to come to Jordan and miss the Dead Sea. At 400m below sea level, this extraordinary body of intense blue water, polished smooth like oiled skin on a windless day in winter or ruffled into salty whitecaps during the summer winds, lies at the lowest point on earth. The extreme salinity of the water has nothing to do with the Dead Sea being below sea level; rather it comes about because of the high evaporation rate.
Dead Sea salts and minerals have long been exploited for their skin-friendly properties – although they don’t always feel that friendly. While swimming in the sea, you’ll discover cuts you never knew you had (don’t shave before visiting), and if any water gets in your eyes, be prepared for a few minutes of agony. In fact, ‘swimming’ is probably a misnomer – bobbing is nearer the mark as the buoyancy experienced in the Dead Sea makes it difficult to move through the water.
