Pyla dune through the trees

Staircase up the dune

Landward side of the dune ( the steepest side)

Just where the southern side of the Arachon baisin meets the atlantic you come across this monster.

Marked on the map as either Dune de Pyla or dune de Pilat, we were quite surprised to catch a glipse of this through the trees while driving along.

Of course we then had to stop and investigate,which led to us climbing the dune, all 107metres of it. Well it would be rude not to as there is a fibreglass staircase installed up the steep rear side to help you and the view from the top is amazing.
