Great sunset

The red sand dunes are great for watching the sunset. Although it's a hype and very busy, it's definitely worth it!

Based on my review for white sand dunes. The trip is cheaper and just asking the receptionist or hostel owner. If you want to see the sunset view here come early, because its far from white sand dune if you here is your next destination. Don't too much spending time in white sand because you will miss the red sand... More

Closer to town dunes, littered with rubbish. Great place to watch the sun set. The sun set tour organises by the backpacker village includes both sand dunes and the hot spring in an old jeep for $4, entrance fee excluding.

I prefer the red sand dunes to the white. Went there during the sunset and it was magical. Just take note that you have to be careful with the kids who's handling the slide-rides. They followed me and friend everywhere and it's a bit irritating.

It looks more orange to me. Like a brick orange. For you Asian folks out there, I'd say don't expect it's gonna be like a pretty middle east desert. The sand is pretty sticky and mushy. It's a bit dirty too so when you lay your barefoot there, don't expect it's gonna feel good. I would say watching sunset there... More

The visit to the Red Sand Dunes is bittersweet. Feel so nice to walk/slide around the dunes because of it's powdery sand. However, the amount of trash the tourists leave are just horrible. Hope they can do something about it to save this place.

Beautiful sand dunes, but I'd say go visit the white sand dunes and skip this instead if you've limited time. The best time to visit would be in the early mornings or evenings, as it can get rather warm otherwise. There'll be kids trying to sell you trinkets or rent you plastic sheets - but simply wave them off with... More

These dunes are closer to Mui ne than the white ones, they are not as magnificent, but there are some great views when you get up there. I've been there twice and it gets hot quick, there is "sand sledding" which is worth a try it's cheap to rent one from the kids, but don't get your hopes up about... More

It's good for sunset and not as beautiful as the white sand dunes. It's worth going to see though since it is not far from Mui Ne main hotels.

Very accessible sand dunes with easy access and loads of restaurants/cafes. quite difficult to climb. Vendors rent out sledges. The sand is generally clean with nice views if you male it to the top. Gets seriously hot after 1000 am and an ordeal. Do go if you are interested. Much better than white dunes.
