Well,we have been here many times now but we never ever get tired of looking onto the dunes, there is something really mezmerizing about this place. Just venture out in the dunes any time of the day (or sunset) and stroll along. Quite a workout...More

We travelled by public bus here and had a lovely walk on the dunes. Not too many people about- especially on the dunes. Most visitors seem to prefer to see the dunes from the promenade. It is worth walking out towards the sea though. Walk...More

Dunes are awesome, beautiful beach for sure. Sea often too rough to swim. Totally spoilt by the hundreds and hundreds of people walking up and down the beach by the sea as you have to take this route to avoid the camps of sun beds...More

When walking along the coast from Meloneras to Playa del Inglés you come across this dunes. It is kindda strange, if you walk into this dunes and ignore the background, it's like a dessert. Really nice to experience walking these dunes.

hi Playa del Ingles became quite large, but if you start from the Jumbo Center it is about 15 minutes walking distance . The entrance to the Dunes is at Hotel Riu.

Hay dos parking de pago. Pero son caros. Pero por la zona del Auditorio de Meloneras puedes aparcar aunque sea un poco incomodo. Y hay una especie de parking de tierra frente al hotel Boabab.
