Sink or swim? There is no chance of either occurring at the Dead Sea. The mineral-rich Dead Sea offers bathers ultimate buoyancy to the point where you will feel like a cork bobbing about!

Opt for a dip, and you will bob about like a rubber duck in a bath, without any effort at all. No life rings needed here. Next two days at leisure.
