You can get to the Great Red Sand Dune by Hatta Road E44 (40 minutes from the center of Dubai). You can do this with a tour group, by taxi or renting a car. The first two options are safe, but slightly uninteresting, but if you decide to rent a jeep and go to the desert alone - be extremely careful! The desert is dangerous, you can get stuck in the sand, get a heat stroke or die from dehydration.
