Absolutely worth to feel one floating in the salt water, relax on the beach, climb the mountainside, look for nice salt crystals. Most beaches (around ein bokek) are public autorized, means they're open to everyone, contain public toilet, shower. Some even have drinking water spots....More

A totally unique experience, the lowest body of water on earth, without a means of drainage. It's loaded with salt and expensive chemicals. So easy to float; hard to get back on your feet. While you're add it, enjoy a mud bath.

Floating in the Dead Sea (yes you really do float!) is a must do experience once in your life but be prepared. The beach facilities are fairly basic with very limited lockers for storing valuables and simple plastic chairs around the beach rather than loungers....More

Wouldn't recommend it. Poverty in the West Bank is very high, and that opportunity might prove too tempting to some. You may want to consider a nearby hotel that allows for valet parking. That should alleviate your concern.
