Our tips for Dead Sea

  • Best not shave: Perhaps best to avoid having any cuts when you visit the dead sea! It's 34% salt, and that's going to sting if you have a cut. So save the shaving for another day. 
  • Other dos and don'ts: There are a few dos and don'ts for visiting the dead sea. Don't splash, and don't wear a new bikini. But do bring your camera, well it's a unique place after all. Do enjoy the mud, it's good for you.
  • Drink plenty of water: It might seem strange to mention, but you are in a hot country, so dehydration can be a problem. So be careful and drink water, even if the locals don't.

Best time to visit

Visiting Jordan during the spring is a great time to see Jordan in bloom. The days are warm and the night cool. Perfect then, for some wellness in the mud and floating on the waters.

Getting there

You'll most probably be going on an organised tour, so no need to worry about getting your own way there. However, if you want to visit by yourself, you can catch a bus from Mujaharin bus station to Rame and then take a taxi to the beach. It's not expensive, so this is the way to go if you like an adventure.
