The red sand dunes are smaller and not as clean as the white sand dunes, but it is closer to the main tourist area and has the red sand that makes you feel like you're in the actual desert. If you plan on coming here, do yourself a favor and come early. The sunrise is beautiful over the hills and... More

Was part of a tour and we stopped and got pestered to hire a plastic mat to slide down the dunes. The dunes weren't that huge so didn't bother. We were there for about half hour which was long enough. Would have been better if it wasn't covered in litter.

We went here around 5.30pm to watch the sunset and it was beautiful and we got some great pictures. Not too far from the centre of mui ne so worth going at this time just to see the sand light up as the sun goes down.

Not quite as impressive as the white sand dunes but still worth a visit. They are closer to Mui Ne tourist strip than the white sand dunes and both areas can easily be accessed in half a day. Consider visiting the fairy meadow as well.

You cannot compare this place to the white dunes. It is just a cheap attracion for bored people. Just pass this place and go to the white dunes, which are really amazing!

The white sand dunes are much better if you have to choose. But the red sand dunes can be a ok place to stop by a short while. You can meet kids that want to rent out plastic covers that one can slide on.

It's fine. You get a bit ambushed by children to buy sheets of plastic to slide down the dunes. A lad even opened the door or our car to get to us. Feels like you're on a movie set or something as it seems so out of place!

Upon arriving we were harassed by a little guy who wanted to drag us into the dunes. He wanted $ 1.50 for one slide. It not let go of us so I slipped one time. But it takes away the charm of the place a bit ... but it's super beautiful at sunset. It's a nice place to see in... More

Free to have a look. Expect to be hassled by children for sled rides. Wonder if the kids keep the money or their parents force them to go and work. Red dunes are nice to see though.
