Due to the high salinity levels the water of the Dead Sea is so buoyant that it is impossible to sink in it. People can float effortlessly in its waters. It is recommended to wear shoes when entering the Dead Sea because on its bottom there are sharp salt crystals on the stones. Many visitors come to the Dead Sea for therapeutic tourism, because both the Dead Sea mud and its waters have medically proven benefits.
