ONE OF THE WORLD’S GREAT NATURAL WONDERS
A spectacular landscape shaped by natural forces, White Sands is like no other place on earth. Located in the heart of the Tularosa Basin just 15 minutes west of Alamogordo, it is the largest gypsum dune field in the world. Long considered one of the world’s great natural wonders, the glistening white dunes range over 275 square miles. A unique variety of plants and animals have evolved to survive the seemingly harsh conditions.
