Seekers of salt-water remedies, floaters, nightlifers, historians.
Day-dreaming buoyantly atop a calm indigo sea. Inhaling the freshest most unpolluted air. Feeling divine.
Best Visiting Months
Sept/Oct for crowds and action, March/April/May for warm relaxing months. The Dead Sea region is a pleasure to visit all year round.
The Dead Sea coastline is a popular one, but good accommodations are limited. The Lot Hotel is very popular for its scenic views, great beach access, desert mountain backdrop and freshwater swimming pool. As well, the hotel is conscious of its ecological impact - using a solar system, saving water and having implemented a "Towel Project", actively saving on electricity and gas while washing towels.
Health spa enthusiasts come from far and wide to experience the calming health benefits of the Dead Sea - the lowest point on earth. If you aren't enjoying the famous mud-slathering rituals and mineral rich salt water swimming that this sea of peace has to offer, you will be touring beyond the beaches to explore the mystical ancient history of Israel. Visit the sacred city of Jerusalem, the metropolitan bustle of Tel Aviv, the mountain fortress of Masada, explore the Negev desert and make sure to take a moment of reflection at the Holocaust museum. The historical significance of this land is a journey you will never forget.
Sink into your beach chair with a spiked lemonana. Restaurants in major cities will offer some mind-blowing dishes - including kebobs, hummus, olives and some wonderful holiday dishes such as latkes and cheese blintzes.
Fly into Jerusalem and take a car/bus to Ein Bokek, Dead Sea.
