Huge sand dune in France

It seems that Europe began to turn into a new Sahara desert. Dune Pyla — the highest sand dune in Europe. It is located in France, in the Bay of Arcachon, 60 km from Bordeaux. Volume dunes 60 million cubic meters, width — 500 m from east to west, and length — 3 km from north to south. Its height reaches 107 meters above sea level. Dune is moving inexorably into the country and gradually falls asleep buildings and roads.
