We did the 4 hour quad tour to the south, and stopped here for 20 minutes. We’ve been to the desert in Egypt before but this desert is an amazing sight. It’s lovely clean white sand dunes everywhere. Riding the quads through, up and down...More

Really good fun packed trip. Highly exhilarating 4x4 hopping and sliding over sand dunes before reaching a gorgeous beach which stretches on for miles. Great place to chill and relax watching the world go by. Highly recommended.

I really, really enjoyed the Viana Desert. It's like how you imagine the Sahara to be. It's about 6km long and 2km wide with only pristine, white sand dunes. I was there in March and it was hot, but not overly and VERY VERY windy....More

The contrast of the white sand and the turquise ocean is magic. You can go there in quad or in pick up. THere are great organised tours to this spot.

Stopped here as part of a Quad tour and got free time to explore. It’s pretty cool place to walk around and go into the caves. Worth a visit.

This is a fantastic spot to see and to roam around. It was seriously windy when we went which caused some discomfort but also enabled us to see the sand dunes changing shape.

Amazing soft sand blown in from Sahara. Good fun surfing down the dune. Beautiful scenery. Quaint little restaurant with local dishes and grog and other alcohols which make Irish illicit “puteen” taste like a good malt. Worth trying.
