South of Vietnam you’ll find Mui Ne, an old fishing town located in the coast of Phan Thiet. It is one of the most important and famous beach destinations of the south of Vietnam.
This magical Vietnamese spot has some of the most contrasting panoramas in the country. The juxtaposition of the colours of its landscapes is simply breath-taking.
One of the most impressive places is Suoi Tien (Fairy Stream in English). It is a 2km stream that runs through a bamboo forest and red coloured dunes. It resembles as a miniature version of the Grand Canyon, which is why is now called the Red Canyon.
This wonderful site deserves to be trekked through. Unveil the reddish paths that will take you through the high peaks of the dunes and leave you right at the beach.
Another must is the sand dunes of Mui Ne. A deserted area with remarkable sands of 18 different colours! That extends all the way from the province of Binh Thuan until Ninh Thua.
If red is your colour, head out to see the red dunes Doi Cat. They cover a total of 50 hectares of territory in Mui Ne! And you’ll always see people gliding down them and having fun.
However, it doesn’t end there; the coastal village also has white sand dunes. The Bau Trang, also known as the white lake. Taking up 70 hectares of territory, these dunes have a high peak of 500 metres and they divide the lakes: Bau Ong y Bau Ba.
The coastal village has 10km of beaches and due to the wind that blows in the area during November until April. It has become a great place to practice surfing, windsurfing & kitesurfing. You’ll find that the beach is covered with kites and you have more than plenty options to learn this sport!
Hiking excursions are mainly done to reach the towers of Po Sah Inu, dating from the ninth century. These magnificent structures are probably the most famous vestige of Champa civilization in Mui Ne. They were constructed at the top of the hill Ba Nai, with wonderful views all around.
