Visiting the Dead Sea was one of the highlights of my time in Israel. I had heard about the Dead Sea ever since I was young and about how easy it is to float! In fact, you can’t really even sink if you try! It’s even recommended that you not try to float on your stomach because sometimes people get stuck with their heads lower than their feet and can’t flip around to get their face out of the water — and let me tell you, you don’t want that water in your mouth!

We visited the Dead Sea in June, and it was super hot. It’s always pretty warm near the Dead Sea because it’s about 1,400 feet below sea level, so the water never really gets a chance to cool off. It was much closer to bath water than a refreshing dip.
