Not only the lowest spot on earth, but also the saltiest and most mineral-laden body of water in the world, the Dead Sea, which joins Israel and Jordan, is legendary as a source of healing, and has become a popular center for health, rehabilitation...more

While people seem mixed on their opinions of bathing in the Dead Sea, we loved the experience. We did this in October, and the water was warm and soothing. Just like in the many pictures we’ve seen, the high salt content of the water makes...More
The water in the sea is.. well.. not a water ! :) It has consistence of diesel. It is not as salty but unbielevable disgusting in taste. A bit greasy but cristall clear. Absolutelly perfect temperature. You float very easy and can be in water...More
Lots of people talk about the health benefits of Dead Sea swimming but the local signs warn against getting the water in your eyes or swallowing. When we went it was 99 degrees and locals were warning against walking on the beach without water shoes...More
Came here with our tour group. We only had an hour to go float, but still had fun. There are bathroom stalls to change in are decent. There are open one rooms for just changing per gender. Not for those that are modest. There are...More
This such a unique and nice experience. So many "beaches" with hotels and bars where you can go and be still in the Dead Sea. Just recommend not to shave before and take care of any wound, it might hurt a bit. But your skin...More
Swimming in the Dead Sea is a must. It's an amazing sensation to be so buoyant and you float almost as though you are lying on the surface not in the water.
Careful not to get water in your eyes as it is so salty...More
What a unique experience. You can float effortlessly, but many just waded as well. There are showers and changing rooms available. It's not recommended for those with high blood pressure for obvious reasons. My skin was so soft afterward! It's an experience that no one...More

Two hours should be plenty of time. While floating in the Dead Sea is a life-experience, about about 20 minutes, you're definitely ready to get out. And locals will actually caution you that you don't want to stay in for longer than 25-ish minutes just due the high salt content. There are restuarants in the area, but most are associated with the hotels and frankly, are not very good. If you have flexible plans, I would recommend spending your 1-2 hours doing your float and then travel elsewhere (more populous area) for your meal.
