An outstanding natural wonder the Dead Sea is a mix of beach living and religious history. Here you can soak up the sun while Biblical scholars get their daily dose of religious history. The leading attraction is the warm, soothing, super salty water. Ten times saltier than seawater, but rich in chloride salts of magnesium, sodium, potassium, bromine and several others.
These warm, buoyant and mineral-rich waters have attracted visitors since ancient times, including the Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra, and King Herod the Great and his court, all of whom have indulged in the Dead Sea's rich, black, stimulating mud — floating effortlessly on their backs while soaking up the water's healthy minerals along with gently diffused rays of the Jordanian sun.
