The staff were very helpful catering for the 4 year old right up to the grand father in our group. . Sand boarding down the dunes was an exhilirating experience combined with an exciting quad bike ride back up.

Fab experience. Climb from the left of the car park along the ridge. Wear good shoes cos the sand is hot. Well worth the effort

The shortest route is definitely not the easiest. But we enjoyed the adventure. There is a longer and slightly easier way up along the edge of the dune. You can also enjoy lunch and a beer after the big climb at the nearby restaurant/pub.

A great experience to have climbed up one of the misted cheered dunes of our motherland. The dune looked cleaner what I last visited, I’d advice that the visitors stop littering. Empty bottles belong in the trash bin.

Hi yes you can drive there yourself. There is no need for a 4x4 as it can be reached by a sedan car as well. There is place for 4x4 driving if you wish to do so.

Yes, there will be plenty of taxis. As a tip, the further you go down the taxi line/away from the ship, the cheaper they are willing to go (usually). I'd also recommend negotiating a rate in advance. Hope you have fun!
