Amman Beach - Amman
This is a great place to have a float in the dead sea and a swim in one of the two pools. You can mix with the locals here as most of the people are locals. There is change rooms, toilets, lockers, freshwater showers, sun umbrellas clean beach. For ladies you may wish to cover up should you wish, but no one seemed to mind if you only swim in your Bikini. You can hire an argilee here and smoke by the pool, has shop with the usual poolside munchies - chips, ice cream and drinks. There is also a souvineir shop. Great for everyone including the kids.
Cost was JD10 for foreigners and JOD5 for locals. Open from 8am to midnight.

Those marble ceilings
Those guys - Nabathians - were carving their sacred rooms (said to be temples and crypts) in a marble rock. It is amazing to stand inside a hall carefully carved inside such a substance (see on the photo).
Btw, in my country kitchen counters are sometimes made from the same type of marble. What did them do with the waste? Kitchen counters, maybe...
The only way back from the Monastery is the way you came up. It is a litlle dangerous to do it when the sun is going down, but it is worth to see the city during sunset when the colors are really vivid.Related to:
