“Great little walk”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

The fairy springs were very pretty and worth the trip as it cost nothing. Just don't get to excited by the waterfall at the end!!

“Not as 'fairy' as the name...”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

There's place for you to put down your shoes for the little kids to 'safe-guard' them at a very small fee. But my hubby & I do not really trust them. So, we just took off the shoes and carried them on our own. So, if you plan to go there, prepare a recycle bag/plastic bag for your shoes.
At first, it doesn't seem attractive. And I felt weird walking barefooted in stream with red & black sands and worried of any insects or baby snakes. But all the way it was a safe 'journey' for us. We saw ostriches and cows along the way. The water is cooling.
There seems nothing interesting till you reach some red big stones by the side. It was quite interesting. But we didn't walk till the very end to see the spring as described by other travellers.

“Most beautiful sight in Mui Ne.”
Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

This is located near by Mui Ne beach.
You can go with bicycle or walking.
It takes only 20 minutes to go through this, with amazing scenary.
I like Red sandune or White sandune, but
it's most beautiful sight in Mui Ne

“Best part of Mui Ne”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Mui Ne in itself doesn't have much going on, and Lonely Planet lied about its attractiveness, but I will admit that the Fairy Spring was an awesome walk. Located very close to the hotels and hostels in Mui Ne, the Fairy Spring is not out of the way like the sand dunes.

Upon entering the spring, kids will try to hold on to your shoes for 50 cents, and then also offer guiding services. Say no to both, as the walk is not that long and you'll be fine holding on to your own shoes. The walk starts off a little unspectacular, but then the rock/sand formations in deep oranges and reds make you see why the Fairy Spring trail is a special place. After about a 10 minute walk, you will notice a rather steep hill on the left hand side. Climb up and you'll be rewarded with beautiful views of the spring. Once you think you walked enough, keep going because there is a nice waterfall at the very end of the trail.

Overall, the Fairy Spring reminded me of Cappadocia in Turkey and is definitely a place one should check out when in Mui Ne.

If you are not into riding around on your own moto, I paid a moto driver $10 USD for an all day tour to the Fairy Spring, the red and white sand dunes, and the fishing village. Well worth it!

“Ok Hike”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Don't leave your shoes with the "kids" at the entrance..even if it's 0.50 USD!

Nice water flow with red sand. Water is a little above ankle-level. Watch out for hard rocks.

On the way up, you can rent an Ostrich for a ride, BUT don't do it! Those poor animal look malnourished!

I got bored after 15 minutes, so we made a U turn!
