“Wild”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Its wild and romantic, quiet as well when we visited. Sand dunes and windswept beach. Arduous walk from the car park but well worth it.

“Who needs a gym”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is such a great place to go if you like walking and tiring little legs out. Whether you are an adult or a child the fun you can have here is endless. Adult rolling from top to bottom is a must!!

“Fab day out”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

These sand dunes stretch out for miles, and a photo taken here could be mistaken for the Sahara! I had not expected the sand dunes to be so mountainous, and the day I had here was not one to be forgotten. I loved rolling down the dunes, and there are many fun walks leading in & out of everywhere. I would recommend visiting on a warm day, but I cannot wait to visit again!
