At over 400m below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth. The sea has a salt content so high, it is impossible for any creature or plant to live in its waters. However, bathing in the water and covering yourself head to toe in the mud from the sea floor, is said to be extremely good for the skin.
The leading attraction at the Dead Sea is the warm, soothing, super salty water itself – rich in chloride salts of magnesium, sodium, potassium, bromine and several other minerals. The unusually warm, incredibly buoyant and mineral-rich, waters have attracted visitors since ancient times; including King Herod and the beautiful Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra.
