Went there early morning n hoped could see sunrise. Turned up with disappointment. Place is good for kids to slides. But i did like the cold wind and not many people that early morning so i enjoyed quiet moment there. Actually, I think this place is good for people to do photography. But have to do that in the afternoon... More

Free and easy to access (at least from the resort nearby). It was super windy as expected but so cool to see red sand dunes that were much more expansive than I expected. You could barely see the ocean so the view is really of the dunes themselves.

The red sand dunes are a free attraction and as such worth a visit. We didn't fall for the kids wanting to rent the slides as we had been conned by kids at Fairy Springs, and it took the edge off the experience. It is amazing view and worth a few photos.

the place is gorgeous and a must go. To be honest, you only need a whole day at mui ne. You can visit almost all the attractions within one day. The area around the sand dunes were really windy so it is advisable to bring sunglasses. Turn away the kids who want to rent to you the slide and you'll... More

If sliding down sand dunes on a board is your thing then you will enjoy this for 30 minutes or so. I did enjoy it, however I could not have done it for too long. Here is the activity plan: 1. arrive at red sand dunes 2. be swamped by children offering you a board to slide down for a... More

It's a nice thing to visit if you have a motorbike for rend and you're driving around in the neighborhood but don't expect anything spectacular. They'll try to rent you primitive kind of body boards to slide down the dunes but I wouldn't go for it (it's nice if you have kids though...)

Just big pile of sand. It is not red at all. Don't waste your time and better visit white sand dunes, where you can rent a buggy to drive on dunes (there are no buggy renting on red sand dunes at all).

Kids trying to sell the slides are a nuisance but I guess necessary. To cross the very busy road is dangerous especially with small children.

We love the red sand dune even though it's much smaller than the white sand dune. The sunset is breathtaking! Many local kids and adults will pester you to rent a card board from them to slide down the dune. Very persistent. They will even offer to take photographs for you at a charge.
