I don't recommend jumping into the Dead Sea. It reeeeeeeally hurts your eyes.

Entering the Dead Sea – don’t jump in!

Welcome to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth (1,388 feet below sea level).

I had a bad scrape from Indonesia that I had forgotten about until the salt from the Dead Sea found my wound. Ouch!  Then a few splashes later and my eyes were burning like I had never felt before!  Most people’s instinct is to rub them (with their hands, still wet from the Dead Sea), which makes them hurt even more.
