First, Duna Por do Sol (Sunset Dune) is so close to the town; second, if the sun is out, you will be in the company of hundreds of others who climb this gently sloping dune for a chance to take some spectacular sunset photos.

Spectacular Sunset from the Dune looking over the Atlantic Ocean. If you shopped right, you get a glimpse of North Africa

We went to see the sun in the end of the day. You can see everybody going the same way up to the 'duna'. The view is amazing and you can take stunning pictures!! You can't loose it! You can take a panoramic picture with the sun, the sea and the chairs in the sand.

Thanks to the mean caïpirinhas that you can buy on site, you might get a chance to see a double sunset. You could also try the "funny" smokes and risk falling asleep there, only to wake up a couple of hours later, jus in time to go have dinner and then more drinks.

An wonderful dune in front of the sea and the perfect spot to watch the sunset. We also went there to watch the fireworks at New Year's evening.

It's a wonderful experience to join the crowd which gathers every evening on top of this landmark dune to watch the beautiful sunset. On occasions it can be spectacular!

It is nice to see the sunset from there but I had the same nice view from the beach. The sand stream scratches your leg when it is too windy. Anyway, it is a must.
