Salt Pearls Form on Some of the Shorelines
The Dead Sea shoreline is unlike any other beach you've ever seen. For starters, some of the beaches feature thick layers of milky salt deposits that coat the ground and any nearby surface. Other beaches contain thousands of tiny, pearlescent beads that make you feel like you're in another world entirely.
On that note, you should always wear shoes when you're at the Dead Sea (even in the water), otherwise you can easily cut your feet. The saltiness of the water and the ground can make those little cuts particularly painful. Still, it is a remarkably beautiful destination, and makes for some pretty gorgeous photo ops should you ever get the chance to visit.
