See the Great Dune of Pyla


When you think of Europe, you may not think of deserts and dunes, but the Great Dune of Pyla, just southwest of Bordeaux, France is actually one of the world’s tallest. While not part of a vaster desert, as other options on the list, this dune does make for a wonderful day trip from Bordeaux and is on its own a site to be seen. Unlike other dunes, the Great Dune of Pyla is surrounded by a dense green pine tree forest, which makes it more unique than other destinations.
