Great for children cos they will surely enjoy the thrills of sliding down from the sand dunes and playing with the local children who rent their slides and time to you. Good for photo taking.

As compared to the white sand dunes, the sand here looks like the construction site sand. nothing special to see

Whwn you compare it to the other sand dunes. Its just not worth the time. If you think about it: its just red sand. People will try to sell you slides. From my point of view it looks quite boring tough.

If you are in the area drop in, but I wouldn't say to go out of your way to see it. There were young kids having fun sliding down on makeshift slides there though.

I personally wasn't impressed by these. The white sand dunes are definitely better. If you have ever been to a desert you will find this lacking in excitement!

This was our last stop on the sand dunes tour and the best. Watching the sun set over the dunes was very beautiful and unspoiled by the sound of ATV’s which are ever present at the white sand dunes. We were swarmed by kids trying to sell us plastic sheets for sliding on arrival, but they leave you alone fast... More

Just nice but nothing special to see, were shoes because the sand might be very hot. From the hotel area in Mui Ne to the red sand dunes is about 14 km

A great spot for either the sunrise or sunset, it's easy enough to google the times so you don't miss it; just make sure you get there 30minutes/1hour before as you have to walk up too the top (very easy). If you're there at sunset then there are swarms of kids asking for you to slide down on what can... More

The red sand dunes are a beautiful sight, not to go as far as humbling but definitely beautiful and vast. A stop of an hour would give you time to scale the highest peak and rent a slide to try and luge down the dunes! Worth adding to a moped/easyrider itinerary.

We reached here during sunset at the end of our tour. The moment we get down local kids will crowd trying to rent their plastic sleds. We ignored them & started hiking up. Not as vast as the white dunes. The sand is more packed which makes walking up easier. Beautiful views all round. Slightly more dirty than white dunes... More
