If you're seeking that 'I want to float in the Dead Sea' moment and not staying in one of the waterfront hotels, this is the most credible alternative. At the time of writing, as a foreigner you'll be charged JOD 15 for entry (it's cheaper if you're a Jordanian national) and towels and a locker are a modest JOD 1.5 more. Sure there are places further along the coast where you can access the sea for nothing, but you won't be able to wash the salt off in a shower straight afterwards. The beach is nothing remarkable - it's quite rocky, so some waterproof shoes are recommended; in any event these are good too for once you're in the sea as some salt formations can cut your feet to shreds. The facilities are basic but satisfactory. I wouldn't bank on spending more than 3-4 hours here, but at least you'll get the experience you seek for alot less than the JOD 40+ nearby hotels want for a daypass. There are a couple of freshwater pools too and a set menu lunch is available for around JOD 12. If you get a taxi here from downtown Amman (about 40 minutes' drive) don't pay more than JOD 30-40 for the round-trip, including keeping the driver waiting while you're there.Recommended for:Outdoor Enthusiasts
