The dunes at Colchester is part of the Alexandria dune field which is the biggest coastal dune field in the Southern Hemisphere and seriously high. From the top of the dunes you get a fantastic 360 degrees view of the surrounding dunes, the river below all the way to the river mouth (picture to come tomorrow), Algoa Bay, St Croix Island and Port Elizabeth beyond. After huffing and puffing to the top the view makes all the effort worth it. And the best way down? Either flat on your tummy on a dune board or running down like an elephant. You'll know what I mean once you've done it.
