When you are in the middle of these dunes you'll fee like you are in the Sahara Dessert! This is a short hike on the Oregon Coast that brings you into a massive area of sand dunes. When you climb up onto them you'll feel like you are in the middle of a massive dessert instead of actually still in Oregon. Take a fun tumble down them and walk along their windblown ridges to see the sand collapse under your feet. This is truly an amazing spot on the coast.
