Popular Destinations near Dead Sea
Favourite Cities and Hotels in Israel

Saline and curative, the Dead Sea provides Jordan and Israel with a phenomenal tourist attraction. A safe haven for King David, the salt lake has been a refuge as far back as Biblical times. Every year the mystique of the Dead Sea lures millions of visitors to ancient towns, archaeological sites and health spa resorts. From Jericho to Eid Gedi National Park, the Caves at Qumran and the spectacular scenery visible from Route 90, the Dead Sea and Jordan Valley offer a host of brilliant attractions to discover.

While the severe salinity of the lake thwarts macroscopic aquatic life, the mountains that envelop the Dead Sea teem with mammals and birds. National parks on both sides of the Dead Sea house significant jackal, fox, ibex and leopard populations. As such, there is much more to the salt lake and immediate terrain than meets the eye. Popular annual events in the area include the Dead Sea Jewish Rock and Soul Festival and Jordan Festival.

Dead Sea Delights

The Dead Sea gives the term ‘going overboard on the seasoning’ a whole new meaning. At 400 metres (1,300 feet) below sea level, this is one of the saltiest bodies of water on Earth. It is also an undisputed natural wonder – a place to cure physical ailments, and the setting for all those naff photos of floating pasty tourists reading the newspaper. ... Read more »

After the compulsory bob in the water, visit Mujib Nature Reserve and explore Kerak and Madaba Mountain. There are also hiking tracks in and around Ein Gedi National Park that are worth checking out. Alternatively, you can settle in for a mud bath at one of the popular spas, or plaster yourself in the pungent waterfront mud for a mineral-rich free one.

  • Winter temperatures fall to 20-23°C (68-73ºF), but the water stays nice and warm!
  • In winter and spring the chance of floods increase, so pay attention to the weather and look out for flood warnings.

Getting Around

  • If you’re staying centrally you’ll find it easy to walk to most beaches and places of interest. Walking is really the only way to fully explore the mountains and national parks.
  • If you want to travel farther up the coast, you’ll need to either organise a bus or hire a car. You’ll easily do so from your hotel.
  • Taxis are readily available and a convenient way to get around.
