Floating on the Dead Sea

Image of Amelia Stewart

Amelia is here to help give you the inside track.

The lowest point on Earth lies at 1,200 feet below sea level, where the Jordan River empties into the Dead Sea.

Because of the extreme salinity of the water (which means nothing can live here - hence the name) it is possible to experience the peculiar sensation of floating on the surface.
