The Atlantis dunes are fast becoming one of Cape Towns premier adventure hotspots. The Atlantis dunes cover an area of roughly 32 km², and they are a mere 45 minutes’ drive north of Cape Town. Atlantis is more than a centre for adventure sports: it makes for some amazing photo opportunities with its ever-changing landscape of pure white sand dunes reaching up to 50 metres (160 feet) high. The dunes are a haven for sandboarding, quad biking, extreme 4×4 rides and self-drive dune tours, and off-roading. The area is also frequented by film crews, and the landscape appears in countless movies and adverts. Here’s a guide to the activities and operators in the area.
