Location

Picture

The Dead Sea is located on Israel’s eastern border with Jordan (half the Dead Sea lies within Jordan). Jerusalem is approximately 45 minutes by road, and Eilat and Tel Aviv around 2 hours. Trips to the Dead Sea are generally via Tel Aviv, the arrival point of most international flights to Israel. Direct flights to Eilat are sometimes available and provide an alternative and sometimes cheaper option.

Climate in the Dead Sea region

Dead Sea Mud

The Dead Sea is cool during winter months, temperate in spring and summer and hot in summer. The heat is dry and feels much less oppressive than humid heat. Being located in a desert, temperatures around the Dead Sea tend to drop significantly at night.

Best Time to go

Spring to autumn is the best time to visit the Dead Sea, though its possible to travel at any time. Travel during winter can be cheaper, and you will find the hotels less crowded - so if you’re going to be spending most of your time in the spa, this might be a good option for you.

Dead Sea Spas

As a spa destination, the Dead Sea has few rivals. The uniquely high saline waters and mineral-rich mud have been used for hundreds of years for their beneficial qualities for the skin, and are used today in a number of pampering treatments. Dead Sea hotels have made the most of the natural resources on their doorstep and offer guests comprehensive spas, each with its own unique flavour.

You can pre-book your spa packages with us, or book locally. Many Dead Sea hotels allow guests from other hotels to book packages and treatments at their facilities.

Medical Tourism

The high-bromide air and low UV sunshine of the Dead Sea are also beneficial to several respiratory and epidermal conditions, and a trip to the Dead Sea can do wonders in treating, for example, psoriasis.

Many of the spas in the Dead Sea cater to specific conditions and can offer specialist treatments and advice.

Sightseeing

Apart from the eerie, totally unique shores of the Dead Sea itself, there are other areas of great natural beauty and historic interest nearby. The Ein Gedi nature reserve features desert landscapes and oases and is a favourite with nature lovers.

Nearby is the Qumran cave site, where the Dead Sea scrolls and several other ancient documents of religious and historical importance were found, considered the site of the earliest Christian monasticism.

A little further from the Dead Sea is the Massada fortress, where you can ascend by cable car to the fortress and discover the fascinating history behind the remains. Also nearby are the Judean desert monasteries, built into the desert cliff walls, some of which are still functioning today and welcome visitors.
