The Dead Sea is an unavoidable place in Jordan. It is the lowest point in the world at -430m below the sea level. This place is famous for its medicinal and therapeutic benefits thanks to the Dead Sea minerals and the dark mud.
Why enjoy a dip in the Dead Sea through a hotel or a private beach?
First of all, accessing the Dead Sea outside of hotels can sometimes be difficult due to the stony shore. Additional disappointment comes when you unfortunately stumble upon the occasional trash laying around. Hotels, on the other hand, offer a clean and private sand beach access to the Dead Sea.
The clear water showers made available by hotels and private beaches come in very handy after a dip in the extra salted dead sea. You’ll be thankful to hop under fresh unsalted water, believe us.
And finally, you can enjoy the perfect weather lying on a sunbed around the hotels swimming pools. 🙂
