Float In The Dead Sea - BookitList

Float In The Dead Sea

Release yourself from gravity and float aloft the salty Dead Sea's H20 blanket.

Suspend Gravity In A Serene Lake

That's right, despite being called "The Dead Sea" it's actually a vast salt lake. Interestingly it's actually the lowest place on Earth at 430 metres below sea level.

At 9.6 times saltier than the ocean, it's fair to say you'll get your share of sodium chloride when taking a dip. The name "The Dead Sea" actually comes from the salt making it difficult for fish and plants to survive. Even if you swim like a brick, you'll look like Michael Phelps taking a paddle in this buoyant lake.
