The Dead Sea
Famous for being ten times saltier than seawater, the Dead Sea is one of the Middle East’s most fascinating attractions. A popular place to experience the delights of the Dead Sea on holiday is the Jordan Rift Valley, which enjoys a dramatic setting at 400 metres below sea level: the lowest point on earth.
The Radisson Blu Tala Bay Resort in Aqaba offers first-rate accommodation three to four hours drive from the Dead Sea. Its beautiful interior, elegant guest rooms and excellent variety of services complement its spectacular Red Sea setting.
Dead Sea Holidays in Jordan
For millennia, the Dead Sea has attracted visitors thanks to its restorative qualities. The rich mixture of salts and minerals left behind as the landlocked water body evaporates is incorporated into a range of products, benefiting everything from agriculture to bodily well-being. Dead Sea mud in particular is known for its health-giving properties, and historic visitors to the region are thought to have included Cleopatra and King Herod.
The Dead Sea also attracts religious travellers keen to explore the area’s Biblical heritage. The area around the Dead Sea is now peaceful and quiet, but is thought to have been the location of five famous cities from the Bible, among them Sodom and Gomorrah.
Holidaymakers simply keen to lounge in the Dead Sea’s warm waters, in which bathers effortless float on its surface, will not be disappointed either.
