More than 90% of the country is covered by the desert. At the coastline you can visit a lot of old Roman cities like Sabratha and Leptis Magna. I think the most beautiful city in the Sahara is Ghadames, which is close to the borders of Algeria and Tunesia. The old white city is build with covered alleyways to protect against the heat. If you go south from Ghadames you will enter Acacus mountains which contain a lot of rock art and a beautiful scenery with a lot of dunes and rocks. In the central part of Libya you can visit the beautiful salt lakes of Ubari where you can rent skis to go down from the sand dunes. The seas of sand dunes near Ubari and the rest of the region Fezzan are so beautiful, it”s like walking through a painting. Sit down on the top of a dune and watch the change of colour and the move of the shadow and enjoy sunset. If you go in the winter don”t forget to take an ice scraper with you, your tent is frozen and just before sunrise the dunes are covered with ice which look beautiful.
