This trail loops around the base of the tallest sand dune in Europe. Though the trail mapped here doesn't go to the top, you may choose to go up via sand or stairs. From the top, there are amazing views of the Arcachon Basin in one direction and the wider Bay of Biscay all around. There are many other connecting trails in the area that further explore the coast and the mountains inland.
