The sea is 9.6 times more salty than other known oceans, which makes it the world's saltiest sea. Tourists from the whole world are always keen to experience the wonders of the dead sea.

Meanwhile, the sea was named as the Dead Sea because aquatic animals, plants and organisms, such as fish and sea animals, cannot have their habitat in it.
