Swimming in The Dead Sea Looks Like a lot of Fun. This is What Happens!
This and many other similar videos show, floating in the waters of the Dead Sea is entirely effortless. Even 14-pound bowling balls float as if they were rubber inflatables.
Its unique name comes from the fact that the incredibly high concentration of salt (34%) in its waters is a hostile environment for most plants and animals.
If you’re planning on swimming in these waters just remember one thing: if you dip your head below the surface, you do so at your own risk. The high salt content does wonders for your skin but will severely irritate your eyes, nostril and mouth.
