... hangovers so decided to make full use of the hotel pool before going dune bugging and sand boarding in the massive sand dunes that surround the town. We all piled into our dune buggy and went for a spin up and down the dunes which was really fun and the height of some dunes was unbelievable. After a few hair raising descents we drove back to the top of a dune and all got out to have a go on the sand boards. Again, this was quite daunting due to the size ...
