The Great Dune of Pyla France

Since Europe has no deserts, you¡¯d think the title of ¡°Europe¡¯s largest sand dune¡± would go to something that wasn¡¯t particularly impressive. But you¡¯d be wrong. The Great Dune of Pyla is 3km long, 500m wide and 100m high, and for reasons I will probably never understand, it seems to have formed in a forest. The dune is very steep on the side facing the forest and is famous for being a paragliding site. At the top it also provides spectacular views out to sea and over the forest (since the dune is far higher than any of the trees surrounding it).
