I think the dessert would be more difficult due to the heat and lack of water and food. In the ocean, if you know how to purify water you'd be fine. You can also catch fishes for food.

Desert. The environment and the feeling of isolation are depressing thoughts I relate to it.

Both can kill a person mercilessly but a person can survive in both conditions with the right skills and supernatural intervention, although i'd rather be in the desert than in open sea. I feel its easier to survive when sharks or fishes aren't nipping at your hills while you're trying to stay afloat.

In my humble opinion, I think desert is crueler as desert are usually lack of food and water. The extreme heat is also another torture.

I think they both are equally in their own way.

I think they're both two sides of the same coin and can be equally cruel. Both a vast expanse of nature's power, one of sand, the other of water.

I would rather be lost at sea than lost in the desert. There are more possibilities for survival if you are lost at sea I think.

They're both bad but slowly dying of hunger and thirst is far worse than drowning.

I would like to agree with those who prefer a death at the sea, unless I'm not afraid of it. To be honest, even the thought of slow and painful death at a desert makes me more comfortable, rather than imagining of being a meal of a dangerous creature in the sea. :( Anyway, I never wish to be trapped in either situations.
