This is in France: the Great Dune is constituted of fine sand which the siliceous grains have about the same size. Since about ten years, this area is also became a point of start to the lover of delta planes.
The Great Dune of Pyla is a UNESCO listed landscape.
Some figures: volume 60 millions cubic meters, length 3 km, width 500m, height 100 to 110 m. It moves eastward at about 5 m/year covering the pine woods, and some campsites and houses.
