Apart from sand and a good view, I don't see the effort on why you should go all the way up to the top. The sense of disappointment after.

Visited during the day (apparently seeing this place at dawn or sunset makes more sense looking at the positive reviews here). Dunes sit just by the local road - not in. some secluded location as pictures make it seem. And now to the worst part......More

We'd shot the near by bus to the dunes that run up and down the strip. It dropped us directly before the dunes. We spent many hours playing in the sand. Doing flips and taking photographs waiting around for sunset. We subsequently caught the bus...More

Like in the title. They are small, dirty, nothing special. Only if you have nothing else to do. Good thing is, there is no ticket needed.

It was a nice place to see and the history behind it was quite interesting, but you definetly have to go with a tour guide, to get the full experience and all the information and small stories about the place.

The standings are lovely but not worth getting up at 4am if overcast you don’t get to see the sunrise over the red sand. However definitely worth a visit to sand board later in the day that was fun and so was 4w driving in...More

This location is even worse than the white sanddunes. Loads and loads of tourists going up and down a couple of sanddunes. There is literally not a spot to be found where there is no footstep. I would only recommend going there if you have...More

Smaller, quieter and closer than larger white dunes, the reds offer sheets of plastic for sliding. It's ok for half and hour.

No you can easily do it on your own. Renting a motorbike or one of the jeep tours is probably a the best and most affordable way. I think our tour started at 4.30 or 5.00 am.
