By walking over the dunes there are ares You can truly get away from it all.Take water and wear good shoes.It will be like You are in the sahara desert at times oh and beware when You encounter other people they may not be wearing clothes as there is a big naturist area here.

The dunes are just breathtaking ! You feel like in Sahara desert. The walk is quite long if you want to go through all the area but it worth the trip ! Don't forget to take your flip-flops or shoes (sand is very very hot!) and water !
