Why Your Dune Vacation is Actually A Workout

Vacationing near sand dunes is fun. There are many different dunes to experience in America from Michigan to Alabama and anywhere in between. If you enjoy being active on your vacations than a dune vacation is just the thing for you. There are so many different activities that you can do on sand dunes. Not only are these activities fun, but they are also a great workout. Just walking on sand gives you a better workout than running on concrete, and imagine what else you could do. Well, you don’t have to imagine too much. Here are a few of the best sand dune activities that are also a great adrenaline boost and workout:

  • Sandboarding: Yes, it is exactly what is sounds like. It is like surfing but on sand. Test your core and your balance while sliding down the tall dunes.
  • Driving Excursion: Riding a dune buggy over the soft sand is not as easy as it looks. It takes good hand-eye coordination as well as muscles to be able to expertly maneuver your way over the dunes.
  • Walk the dunes: As mentioned before, walking in the sand is a great workout. If you don’t think so you will realize it about five minutes in.
  • Run the dunes: Walking just not enough for you? That’s fine. You can experience some friendly competition, racing family members up and down the dunes.
  • Swim: This depends on the dunes you are at. Many sand dunes are near water or a beach. If they are, you should take advantage and cool off with a quick swim.

These are only a few of many possible activities you can do on your dune vacation. Be inventive, there is no way not to have fun on beautiful sand dunes. No matter what you do in the dunes you will surely get a workout and will feel it the next morning. If you would like to stay near the dunes check out Gulf Shores Vacation Rentals.
