The visit to the Mesquite Flat Dunes is best done either early morning or at sunset, so as to avoid the heat. We went early in the morning, even before breakfast.  

At this time you get the chance to enjoy the dunes in relative peace and quiet. The sand dunes are walkable from the small car park. 

The dunes have been used for various film locations including Star Wars.
