Amongst the most enchanting natural attractions in Vietnam, the Mui Ne Sand Dunes are wonderful sights to behold be it at dawn or dusk and here’s more on what awaits.
Where Are the Dunes?
These dunes can be found in Mui Ne, a charming coastal resort town in Southeast Vietnam known for its gorgeous beach and laidback atmosphere. You can stay at properties by the shore like Anantara Mui Ne Resort which organises excursions to the dunes. Jeep tours are popular, while bike rental options are available too for independent exploration.
White Sand Dunes
When it comes to catching a captivating sunrise, head to the White Sand Dunes within easy reach for those staying at a beachside Mui Ne resort. The desertscape with its pristine sands and lakes is made even more beautiful in the light of the morning sun; you can even hire a quad bike or for something truly unforgettable, take a hot air balloon ride.
Red Sand Dunes
Once evening draws near, plan a visit to the Red Sand Dunes where a spellbinding sunset awaits. The sand with its reddish and brown colour lends to the allure of this sight which makes for great Insta posts too. To add to your experience, locals hire out sleds that you can take up to one of the dunes for a fun ride down!
The Fairy Springs
As part of your tour of the Red Sand Dunes in Mui Ne, you can also visit the nearby Fairy Springs, well worth exploring too. This idyllic stream is set amidst impressive rock formations that create an enthralling backdrop; you can remove your footwear and enjoy a leisurely stroll in the stream which is only around ankle-deep in water.
