24 Floating in Dead Sea in Israel

Can you swim in the Dead Sea? No, not really. The water can hurt your eyes and be poisonous if swallowed. But you can float. The high salinity causes a natural buoyancy. Just enter the water and slowly lay back. Now raise your arms. Or read a book. Drift aimlessly. If you want to capture the moment with a selfie, be extra careful. The salt water can quickly render your cell phone or camera useless. Another word of caution is to avoid shaving for a day or two before visiting the Dead Sea. Otherwise, the salt water can surprise you with the equivalent of razor burn.
