The dunes

This is an unmissable stop on a trip to the island of Fuerteventura.

It’s like a slither of the Sahara Desert has broken away from the might of Africa and drifted off into the Atlantic Ocean. Tall, honey-coloured sand dunes sit just a short distance away from the sea. They shift silently and create beautiful landscapes and patterns.

Its small scale means holidaymakers amble about this natural playground. The two vast hotels in the area barely peep above the sand from certain vantage points, while the strong light reflecting off the sand creates some unusual photographic opportunities.
