Enhance your Jordan holiday with a restorative visit to the Dead Sea. Renowned for its mineral-rich saline waters and world-class spa resorts, the Dead Sea adds a unique and rejuvenating element to your itinerary. Since ancient times, people have been drawn to its salt-encrusted shores, largely due to the reputed healing benefits of its mud and startlingly blue waters.
Situated 422 meters below sea level, the Dead Sea claims the title of Earth's lowest point, making it a remarkable natural wonder. Fed by the River Jordan, the lake doesn’t have an outflow, resulting in rapid surface water evaporation and an increasingly concentrated saline solution left behind. One of the Dead Sea's most remarkable features is the sensation of weightlessness experienced while floating in its super-salty waters.
Many of the hotels and spa resorts around the lake’s shore have a private stretch of beach, and most offer spa facilities and freshwater swimming pools. The Dead Sea is less than an hour’s drive from the airport in Amman, so it’s the perfect place to relax for a few days at the end of a Jordan holiday.
