I went on a pilgrimage trip with a group and one of our stops was at the Dead Sea. There are large signs in many locations warning visitors that if they get any of the water in their mouths, that they must seek out the...More
We ended up going to Jordan for a short vacation and decided to stay near the Dead Sea. It is not a spectacular place but with the historical significance it is worth the visit. The beaches are dirty so do not expect to swim unless...More
Having visited the Dead Sea whilst in Jordan I was very disappointed with the beach we were brought to on the Israel side near the town of Kayla. Change rooms, shops, etc. were excellent however the beach was mud, dotted with a few plastic chairs...More
We spent the day visiting the region, and took a dip in the Dead Sea. It was 41°C, so it was very hot. The water was like a spa, and it was very interesting. It’s very salty and has a mineral oil type feel which...More

Two hours should be plenty of time. While floating in the Dead Sea is a life-experience, about about 20 minutes, you're definitely ready to get out. And locals will actually caution you that you don't want to stay in for longer than 25-ish minutes just due the high salt content. There are restuarants in the area, but most are associated with the hotels and frankly, are not very good. If you have flexible plans, I would recommend spending your 1-2 hours doing your float and then travel elsewhere (more populous area) for your meal.
