Dead Sea:
Judean Desert

by | Sep 27, 2017 | 0 comments

Swimming in the Dead Sea is a real experience; bathing is probably a better term. The sea has very high amounts of salt in the water, which therefore propels the swimmers to the top. Floating in the Dead Sea happens without effort. The mud from the Dead Sea is said to have great healing powers for skin conditions and rheumatic disorders. Cuts or open wounds can be aggravated by the water. The water has a bit of a slimy feel but it is definitely worth a dip. There are various segregated swimming areas with full amenities including showers.
