The sand dune is wet in rainy season and the surface is not so smooth. My kids played sand sliding but it was not so exciting as the sand is a bit wet. Don't miss the local food: sweet tofu with ginger, sugar juice and coconut milk. It is excellent!!

The sand dunes are a very attractive formation of nature it is a pity though that humans know how to turn it in a garbage belt in no time....

Though it's a bit of a drive out of Mui Ne, the red dunes were worth visiting. They're very picturesque at sunset and you're guaranteed some great photos. However, expect to be harassed a bit by local kids trying to rent you a piece of plastic board...

We visited the red sand dunes and were initially welcomed by a bunch of kids who pestered us to rent boards for VND 50000, we obliged and rented one from a teenage boy. He brought us up the dunes and was friendly initially. He offered to hold our bags and clipped my girlfriend's bag to the front of my bag.... More

Once we got down from the car, lots of local ppl surrounded us and asked for renting their mat. One mat cost around VMD 30000 for unlimited boarding. We were chasing after the sunset thus running to the higher area as possible to have a better view. Though we could not witness the sunset as the cloud were too thick,... More

We had a scooter so decided to visit the Red sand dune on the location shown in Google map. We arrive on a place without any tourists, just fee shops very quiet, it was 3pm. We parked our scooter and two kids came to us to rent their board and keep following us until we started to climb the dunes.... More

Wasn't that impressive. Rent a motorbike and check this out when you head up to the prettier beaches up north of the town of Mui Ne.
