The Grand Dune is located near Nefta. It is the largest dune in the area, and is famous among Star Wars fans for being featured in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope as R2-D2 and C-3PO crash land in the Dune Sea on Tatooine and later a few stormtroopers find traces of their crash. Note that the stormtrooper sequence was extended in the Special Edition with shots from Yuma Desert.
