Although the sun beat down very hot, the shade on the dunes kept us surprisingly cool. Very soft and silky sand

This hike is best done closer to the sunset or sunrise, simply because it is cooler at those times. Apart from that, it is a pretty easy hike. Expect winds to blow sand into your mouths, eyes, and other parts.
