Three hours without sunscreen at the Dead Sea, especially for us pale northeners, is a really bad sun burn.

I'd also say that, apart from some vitamin (D?), there is no evidence that tanning, especially excessive tanning, has any positive Health effects at all. Even when it comes to the vitamin, you do not need much sun, just some walks outside is all that's needed.

And, while we are at it, I don't give much for the healing effects of Dead Sea salt and Dead Sea mud either. Hype based on exotics, nothing more.

That said, I still thouroghly recommend going there. Check out the nearby sites as well, such as Petra, Jerash, Wadi Rum, Karak, snorkling at Aqaba, Amman (especially downtown, the theatre and the citadel), drive along Kings Highway and so on. It won't have any magical Health effects, but it's still an amazing tour and a fantastic way to spend a couple of weeks.
