Desert behind luscious forests
At the eastern tip of Rab you can see how strong the power of Bura wind is in this area - blowing in gushes from those high mountains overlooking the sea, it brings salty mist that prevents plants from growing along Rab’s northern side.
On the picture you can see a few plants growing on the left side, in slightly sheltered areas, but further to the right, foliage disappears, and behind the tip there is a rocky desert - amazing clean wind swept shoreline.
Not very popular among sailors. But great for a hiking adventure - only if the weather is fine. No plants = no shade = long sleeves, hat, plenty of water and high UV protection.
