True, the traffic was so congested that it took us an extra hour to reach Pilat. And the visitor's centre was so swarming with people that we could hardly push our way through. But the crowds noticeably thinned out once we reached the top of the first dune and headed along the ridge. Thereafter, the views were amazing, making our trip thoroughly memorable. The descent to the beach was steep but the waters ever so inviting. Further along the shore we came across a large group of paragliders who were making the most of the less popular dunes. All in all a great day out.
