Dune 7 is quite an experience! Hatahangu Sandboarding (does not appear in trip advisor) and their guide Arnold were very friendly and helpful. We did sandboarding here and the whole family just enjoyed the once in a lifetime experience

We climbed up dune 7 in December and really enjoyed it so much. Hard work but fun and feels amazing when you get to the top

Bucket list! Tough but not impossible! Go early- the sand can be extremely hot. Don't be fooled by cloud cover - the sun will still turn you into a prawn so be sure to use sunscreen. Sunglasses will be helpful for the glare. Be careful...More

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!
