From Amman, it takes just under an hour to reach the Dead Sea resorts, along Hwy 40 and Hwy 65. Alternatively, you can drive from Madaba via Mt Nebo. If you choose this route, your first view of the Dead Sea will be a spectacular blue lozenge beyond the iron-coloured hills.
A return taxi from Amman to Amman Beach costs about JD50 including three hours' waiting time (minimum required to make the trip worthwhile) or JD20 for a one-way journey.
Some budget hotels in Amman and most hotels in Madaba organise day trips via Mt Nebo, the Dead Sea Panoramic Complex and Hammamat Ma’in.
