Treat Yourself with Some Adventure

The most famous attractions in Mui Ne are the red and white sand dunes. That’s the main reason why Mui Ne is becoming a hot spot for adventurers from around the world as well as one of the best beaches in Vietnam. Mui Ne has something for everyone, not just pristine beaches, idyllic oceanic activities, or local attractions, but its sand dunes- a typical attraction that make it different from the others. In Mui Ne, you can find 2 kinds of sand dunes: the Red and the White. While Red Sand Dunes are great to capture the best sunset over the region, the White Sand Dunes are perfect for quad biking. 

Take a ride on the soft sand dunes for a fabulous spin through the sand and along the sloping edges. Gliding up and down the dunes will be a stunning experience you’ll never find the same.

If you’re traveling with your groups, family or friends, a jeep ride on the soft sand dunes is a great alternative option. Rent a jeep and saunter around the sand dunes and surrounding areas. 

Wandering through the Fairy Stream is also a cannot-miss experience. This beautiful stream flows through a patch of dunes. It is surrounded by majestic and colorful limestone formations on one side and lush greenery on the other side, creating a postcard-perfect background for Instagram-worthy pictures. Kick off your shoes and wade through the crystal clear, ankle deep water to enjoy a pleasant walk to the source- a small waterfall at the end.

These are also awesome places to take in the fabulous sunrise or sunset over the soft sandy beach.
