This area could be interesting if: 1) clean and placed in nice surroundings. 2) The sand is covered by garbage, dunes are situated next to road and several bad but expensive restaurant 3) vendors and aggressive with kids everywhere trying to sell a luge because Sand-sledding is a common activity here. Go in the early morning and you will enjoy... More

Need to get there to catch the sun rise to get the reddish color of the sand... I like to ride dirt bike on the sand and dislike riding the slide down because it doesn't really work...

Love the Sand. Take photos on the sand. Take the sand home in your electronic devices. Sand is love, Sand is life.

The sand dunes, though not big, was nice. It was easy to go there since it was near the city centre. The scene was beautiful before sunset. More quiet and no sound pollution. Recommended this sand dunes rather than the while sand dunes.

I would only consider going here if you have never seen a sand dune before. Compared to dunes in other countries this one is pretty piss poor. The area is littered and full of street urchins. If I were you I would stick with the beautiful beaches this area is famous for!!!

The red sand dunes are a bit different than the white sand dunes. First of all, local will try to sell you a carpet to slide down, foreigners are too heavy to go down with these so don't waste your money. Climb on top of the dunes around 17h45 for the sunset watch. It is great view from the top

For never seeing sand dunes before I was highly disappointed. Maybe if we had gone on a tour we may have seen more rather then going by ourselves. We hadn't even parked our bike and we were already being asked to rent plastic sleds to slide down the hills on. I quick two minute walk up the hills, a look... More

On the way back to Mui Ne we stopped at e The Red Sand Dunes. These are similar to the White Sand Dunes but not quite as massive. We are enthusiastically greeted by a couple of youngsters hoping to rent us a plastic sled to coast down the hills. I guess they didn't notices my heat exhausted face !! This... More
