Most brochures emphasize Mui Ne’s sand dunes. That’s why many families and young travelers love to visit the sand dunes on the trip to Mui Ne Beach
Mui Ne is a fishing harbor, in the Phan Thiet area which is famed for manufacturing fish sauce. Large, fermenting jars line the walls of several buildings, filling the air with a distinct odor.
Mui Ne was called by a fisherman seeking sanctuary on a cape. In this context, “Mui” refers to a cape, and “Ne” to being secretive.
Legend has it that the youngest daughter of the Cham monarch was called “Ne” thus when they construct the temple at the cape, they opted to name the place as such. Many people visit Mui Ne these days to take in the natural scenery and experience the laid-back vibe of the town’s fishing community.
At Mui Ne Beach, in addition to the standard fare of water sports and sandcastle building, parents may take their children to see the beach’s two sand dunes for some exciting sand slide action.
Slide the Sand dunes
The Phan Thiet Sand Dunes are a popular destination for both domestic and international visitors. And a sand dune slide is the most thrilling thing to do on the dunes.
This is just one of the many fun activities to do in Phan Thiet – Mui Ne with kids that will make them feel like they’re in a scene from Lawrence of Arabia. People from all over the world go to Mui Ne to see the Red Sand Dunes, fascinated by this natural wonder. Having sturdy footwear will make the ascent to your objective much less taxing.
When viewed from the peak, the sand waves move like silk salt in the breeze, creating a breathtaking image. Now is the time when you nearly wish you hadn’t left any traces. Every visit is unique because of the ever-changing winds. Therefore, go at your own pace and savor the moment.
The locals will rent you a board to slide down on for around 20,000 VND per hour. They’ll help you figure out where to begin, design a track for sliding, and force you downward.
Mui Ne’s White Sand Dunes
About 25 kilometers to the northeast of Mui Ne is where you’ll find the main draw. Who knew that Vietnam has sand dunes before they visited Mui Ne? The white sand dunes aren’t quite as white as snow, but they’re much brighter than the typical dune field. The attraction lies in the fact that they slant all the way down to a lotus lake surrounded by lush vegetation.
Red Sand Dunes, Mui Ne
The red sand dunes are roughly 20 minutes away from the town. As soon as we reached the top a throng of youngsters raced over to bribe us with plastic surf mats but I was more than delighted to stay upright that day. The sand was a lot coarser than the white dunes and squeaked as we struggled our way to the summit. Although the red dunes aren’t as stunning as the white dunes there are some lovely vistas out to the ocean. I imagine sunsets here are amazing. Visiting the Red Dunes won’t cost you a dime.
