"the black desert" Bawiti Off The Beaten Path Tip by call_me_rhia

  the black desert
by call_me_rhia

Not very far from Bawiti, but offroad nevertheless, there's an area called "the black desert". The black desert is a hilly area of gold soft sand littered with hard black stones of volcanic origin.

It's a great area to go for little walks, but not the best for a drive: the stones are ver hard and sharp, and within minutes one of our tyres bursted. As soon as we returned on the main road we had to change it. It was not exactly a great start (but for the record it was the onyl flat tyre we got).

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
