  • Webern to the dunes just to check out the view and the little Sahara feeling! We stayed half a day spent our time with sun bathing and enjoying the fresh ocean water! We found a close spot for parking...  more »
  • Massive beach with a surprise...behind the main beach is a well advertised gay cruising ground..so if you go for a walk in the dunes you may see more than you expected.  more »
  • You can get some good shots here, we walked through them on a cloudy day though because when the sun comes up on the dunes it is scortcheo!  more »
