Thank you for helping us by reporting bad content.
The Dead Sea, in Hebrew, translates to Sea of Salt, and borders Jordan, Israel, and the West Bank. Due to its high salinity, animals are unable to survive and thrive in such a harsh environment. Hence, the name, the Dead Sea. The high content of salt in its waters creates a density that makes swimming similar to floating.
Comment if you would rather be floating in the beautiful waters right now !
