Where else on Earth can you "sit" on water merely to read a magazine?

This sea is literally "dead" as no fish can live in a water basin where the salt content is around 345g per litre, but for vacationers it is just perfect. Interestingly due to the composition of the water swimming is quite difficult but floating is super easy. One can even recline in water and read a magazine or sip a cocktail. Unfortunately, the water isn't quite salty enough so as to walk on it. Weather forecasts promise 330 sunny days a year though the boiling sun of the summer months isn't preferab​le for the health of your skin. The best compromise between 40 °C in summer and 20 °C in winter are the moderate spring and fall temperatures.
