The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth and also one of the most unique. It’s nine times as salty as the ocean, which makes it super easy to float in. And floating in it is truly a bucket list experience! It is such a unique feeling. You can literally float with zero effort and you can even float while standing straight up and down like a buoy. It’s definitely worth experiencing for yourself, but it’s also best to be prepared before you go, because it’s probably unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before!
8 Tips for VISITING & Floating in the Dead Sea:
1. Bring Flip Flops or Water Shoes
2. Don’t Shave Before You Go and Be Extra Careful with Scrapes or Cuts
3. Don’t Splash or Dive
4. Go to a Designated Swim Spot
5. Wear a Bathing Suit You Don’t Really Care About
I’ve been in twice now and neither of my suits have been ruined, but I’ve heard horror stories, and better safe than sorry. And be sure to rinse out and wash your bathing suit as soon as possible.
