The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is the lowest point on Earth at approximately 400 metres below sea level. The high salt contents in the sea makes it possible to float in the water without sinking.

Why visit The Dead Sea ?

  • Lie back and read the newspaper as you float in the salty waters
  • Smother yourself in mud and enjoy its boundless healing qualities
  • Discover the cuts you never thought you had and don’t shave before wading in!
  • Relax and enjoy some world class hospitality in one of the many fabulous hotels
  • Take a soak in the therapeutic waters of the hot springs of Ma’in

The therapeutic qualities of the Dead Sea’s salt and mud are known throughout the world and many people come to Jordan specifically for treatment at this natural spa.

It’s the perfect place to come and relax after a busy few days exploring the rest of Jordan.
