Dune du PilatPilat Sand dune


No desert in France. But we have this sand dune, the highest (more than 100 meters) and largest in Europe. It is located west of Bordeaux, and south of the Arcachon bassin, along the seashore. Quite curious to see from the air.

Several airfields in the vincinity, Arcachon and Andernos for exemple. Very beautiful sand beaches in the area, the Bordeaux vineyard to fly over if you're interested in wine. Beware the restricted zones, this area is used by Dassault Aviation to test the newly built Mirages, Falcons and Rafales before they are handed over to their customers.
