Tips from locals
Biggest sand-dune in Europe, fun to climb up the stairs or if you continue further along the road you can climb through the back and avoid the tourist crowd and souvenir shops.
Don't miss the Pilat Dune! Arrive early. You can avoid the crowded car car and park along the road. All ways lead you to the top. Best at sunset.
Fancy a day out? The Dune of Pilat, also called Grande Dune du Pilat is the tallest sand dune in Europe. It is located in La Teste-de-Buch in the Arcachon Bay area, France, 60 km from Bordeaux.
