The Best Time To Visit The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is a salt lake found in the Middle East between Israel and Jordan. Its unique mineral composition makes it remarkable if you're searching for therapeutic advantages. You will also find many beauty products that use the Dead Sea's salt as an ingredient source with one study proving that soaking in a Dead Sea salt solution helps improve skin health and cuts down on skin inflammation. 

The Dead Sea also has high concentrations of minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium which are beneficial for skin health, according to Dead Sea Premier. Despite these benefits, the Dead Sea is also an intriguing paradox since the waters don't provide a safe environment to sustain fish or plant life as the water is ten times saltier than ocean water, according to Science Focus. Due to its location, it is a great place to visit to receive spa and mud treatments at one of the hotel and spa resorts. There are also plenty of public beaches that offer access to the Dead Sea, so you may be wondering when is the best time of year to visit.

When to visit the Dead Sea

Pina Travels says that the best time to visit the Dead Sea is year-round as the weather stays comfortable in the area, but during the spring and fall, visitors experience a nice balance between the hot and cold temperatures. Thomas Cook India says springtime in the Dead Sea is from March through May, and the sweltering months at the Dead Sea are from June through August. The tourist season ramps up in September, while late October and November see cooler temperatures, providing the perfect conditions for a peaceful and enjoyable experience. 

The Blonde Abroad recommends enjoying the pool at the hotel or resort during the day, then floating at the Dead Sea an hour before sunset as the private access will close down. She also recommends immersing in the water for up to 15 minutes to avoid dehydration and taking a mud treatment provided by the hotel or resort. However, visitors can also choose a public beach to experience the Dead Sea. Whether you're looking to relax and take in the sights or take advantage of the therapeutic benefits of the Dead Sea, the cooler months are definitely the best time to visit. Just remember to stay hydrated!
