The Dead Sea is a wonder of nature, an ideal place for religious tourism but also for fun in the sun with the whole family. Here beach life and religious history merge, you can relax in the sun, while Bible enthusiasts can enjoy daily favorite subjects.
The main attraction of the Dead Sea is warm, soothing, and extremely salty water, up to ten times saltier than seawater and rich in salts of magnesium chloride, sodium, potassium, bromine, and many others. These unusually warm waters, rich in minerals and which allow anyone to float without problems, have attracted visitors since ancient times, even some illustrious characters, such as King Herod the Great and Cleopatra, the beautiful Egyptian Pharaoh.
With its 410 meters below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth. Jordan's Dead Sea coast is one of the world's most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes and remains as fascinating for today's international visitors as it was for kings, emperors, merchants, and prophets in antiquity. The main attraction of the Dead Sea is of course salt and relaxing water. The salt content of the water is 31.5% and this causes everything to float on its surface. The water also contains 21 minerals including high levels of magnesium, sodium, potassium, and bromine and 12 of these minerals are not found in any other water reservoir in the world.
The Dead Sea is, without a doubt, one of the most fascinating places on Earth. For that reason, and due to the worldwide fame of its healing properties, one can not withhold himself of a bath in its waters on the public beach of Amman.
It is due to these salinity properties that it allows anyone to float in the Dead Sea without the slightest effort. Swimming here can be a fun odyssey. It is also for this reason that the tourist is advised of a series of precautions to take with this water. "Do not dive" is among the prohibitions.
The temperature can be high. Because it is 400m below sea level and the high concentration of salts, it is also the hottest place in the Jordan valley. In June, the average temperature is 43ºC - there are days that can reach 55ºC. The air here is heavier than in the desert.
By the Jordan River, you can visit the place where Jesus Christ was baptized by John the Baptist. A short walk connects the visitor center to the baptism site. The ruins of a 19th-century Byzantine church prove that this was an important place of worship.
The Jordan River is the natural border between Jordan and Israel, and the spiritual weight of this place can be felt. Throughout the surrounding area, travelers can see beautiful Christian churches built or under construction.
A well-traveled bridge between sea and desert, east and west, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a land of mesmerizing beauty and contrasts, from the Jordan Valley, fertile, ever changing, to the remote desert canyons, immense and still. Visitors can explore splendid desert castles, gaze in awe at the haunting wilderness of Wadi Rum, or bathe in the restful waters of the Red Sea.
