The Great Dune of Pyla
France



Since Europe has no deserts, you’d think the title of “Europe’s largest sand dune” would go to something that wasn’t particularly impressive. But you’d be wrong.

The Great Dune of Pyla is 3km long, 500m wide and 100m high, and for reasons I will probably never understand, it seems to have formed in a forest.

The dune is very steep on the side facing the forest and is famous for being a paragliding site.

At the top it also provides spectacular views out to sea and over the forest (since the dune is far higher than any of the trees surrounding it).
