Panorama Dead Sea Complex

You don’t need to go swimming to enjoy the Dead Sea. At the appropriately named Dead Sea Panorama Complex, you can enjoy views all the way across the water to Israel. There’s also a small but decent restaurant offering traditional Jordanian cuisine, and a compact museum telling the story of the Dead Sea and the civilizations that have called it home. Have a look around, then grab a cold drink and enjoy the sublime vistas. If you can, stay for the spectacular sunsets over the coast—the twinkling lights you’ll see on the distant horizon belong to Bethlehem in the Palestinian Territories.
