With the spanking new Ramon Eilat airport just about open, and with many of you flying in on some of the ever-expanding low-cost flights, the question for many of you will be just how the heck do I get to the Dead Sea from here?
You might well have booked a hotel at the Dead Sea already, or be heading to the ultimate budget-friendly pitstop in the Dead Sea area, the Dead Sea Adventure Hostel; whatever your destination, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s amazingly quick and easy to get there!

The main hotel strip at the Dead Sea is at Ein Bokek, at the southern end of the Dead Sea. From here (or Arad, where the Dead Sea Adventure Hostel is located – or from Neot HaKikar where the awesome Shkedi’s Camplodge is located), you’re in the perfect spot to experience the must-see sites in the Dead Sea!
It’s a lot easier than you thought to get to the Dead Sea with some shuttle buses available, especially when you consider that the Dead Sea is some 200 km from Ramon airport (meaning some 2 hours on the road).
If you would prefer not to wait for a shuttle bus, you can always take a taxi from the taxi rank at the airport (not a cheap option). However, be aware that some Dead Sea hotels may offer complimentary pick-up services, delivering visitors directly to their hotels. So definitely check with your hotel before flying.
