Dune of Pilat, Aquitaine, France

The Dune de Pyla – often referred to as the Dune de Pilat outside France – is a natural sand dune, several kilometres long and approximately 100 metres high on the Atlantic Coast a few kilometres south of Arcachon.

The dune is one of the most unusual and impressive natural sites in France, and officially listed as one of just 30 ‘Grand Sites of France’. Apparently the Dune de Pyla receives 1 000 000 visitors each year!
