  • This dunes is the giant (3 km) in all europe
  • Very cool nature reserve, beach and walking area. The area is comprised of sand dunes as far as the eye can see. They are nice to climb in and out of but I wouldn’t recommend venturing too far in as climbing in the sand can be exhausting especially in the heat. I would highly recommend coming here for sunrise or sunset. You can walk along the beach to nice shopping and eating towns on either side. There is even a spot to ride camels!
