Unlike the white dunes no quads are needed, but your quads get a great work out climbing the dunes Great view from the top Gives that Sahara desert feel Again great contrast for photo the deep red soil and clear blue skies the view of the ocean and local kids sleighing on sheets of plastic

The scenery is very beautiful. It's better to visit this during the non peak hours around 2pm-5pm, the weather during this time is quite hot but it's much lesser crowd so we can walk around and take some good pics while enjoy the view. During the peak hours, its very crowded and rubbish everywhere. Gotta walk far away to escape... More

Super busy, covered in rubbish and loads of people trying to sell you 'sledges' ... The white Sand dunes are much more impressive!

The dunes were pretty cool. Stay and watch the sunset!!! you see better the ocean that before blends in so well with the sky. the contrast to the red sand and the fire-cracking sky is wonderful. As mentioned, people try and sell you things, but are not pushy. I recommend very much to stay outside of the backpacking central as... More

We had a private driver who brought us over here. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was very cool. As soon as we opened the van door a group of kids came over to negotiate prices for their sleds. My husband handled all that and then we were off. It turns out that each group of kids has... More

Super nice place! It takes 10 minutes by motorbike from the city center and it's funny playing with local children! I suggest it

We drove on a moped to see both the dunes. Parked this opposite the dunes for 10,000 dong. Everyone trying to sell you boards to slide down the dunes on for 30,000 but we didn't do this as heard it's only good if you're super light. The dunes are amazing, a gorgeous colour (looks a deeper shade of red in... More

I was told it was looking like Sahara desert. Well, it's not totally true but still cool to experience. However, the place is a bit crowded and some empty plastic bottles were among us in the sand..

We went there round about noon in the scorching hot sun. The sand was too hot to walk on, overall there was quite some rubbish scattered around and so after 3 minutes we went back to the scooter and left again. However, might be totally different very early or late during the day.

We went because it was included in our tour along with white sand dunes, fairy stream and fishing village. It's impressive as it's an orange colour and if you could get far away from the tourist and locals selling food and tourist tat it would be amazing. After seeing the White dunes it's didn't compare it was dirty full of... More
