We'd shot the near by bus to the dunes that run up and down the strip. It dropped us directly before the dunes. We spent many hours playing in the sand. Doing flips and taking photographs waiting around for sunset. We subsequently caught the bus...More

Like in the title. They are small, dirty, nothing special. Only if you have nothing else to do. Good thing is, there is no ticket needed.

It was a nice place to see and the history behind it was quite interesting, but you definetly have to go with a tour guide, to get the full experience and all the information and small stories about the place.

This location is even worse than the white sanddunes. Loads and loads of tourists going up and down a couple of sanddunes. There is literally not a spot to be found where there is no footstep. I would only recommend going there if you have...More

Smaller, quieter and closer than larger white dunes, the reds offer sheets of plastic for sliding. It's ok for half and hour.

No you can easily do it on your own. Renting a motorbike or one of the jeep tours is probably a the best and most affordable way. I think our tour started at 4.30 or 5.00 am.
