MUI NE Beach is Vietnam’s largest and fastest-growing resort community. Until the solar eclipse of 1995 when thousands flocked to the area for the best glimpse, Mui Ne remained a relatively unknown fishing community hidden in the palm groves along the beach, reachable only by a primitive dirt road. Since then it has become one of the top beach get-a-ways in Vietnam, as well as the water sports capital of the country. November through March is windy season, and during this period the bay is crowded with kite boarders and wind surfers from around the globe.

Mui Ne Beach and the surrounding Binh Thuan province have everything to offer. We have beautiful tropical beaches lined with groves of swaying palm trees; immense saharan sand dunes meandering for kilometers through colors of red, yellow and white. We have winding rivers teeming with fresh fish and crabs; tall mountains with bamboo rainforests and pristine waterfalls. There are deep red canyons parted by twisting streams and echoed by the sounds of tropical birds.
Mui Ne Beach Fantastic red and white sand dunes, which can be explored on a jeep tour (most often includes a sand-sledding session), are a must-see. Another destination worth a visit is the so called Fairy Stream, a scenic creek winding through breathtaking red and white sand cliffs from deep in the dunes out to the beach. Here you should take your time (around 2 hours) to walk bare-foot through the shallow water and admire the wonderful natural surroundings.

Set in front of beautiful red sand dunes, Mui Ne Beach offers more than 16 kilometres of once pristine coastline, which has been developed over the last years with accommodation offering everything from budget on-the-beach bungalows to high-end hotels on at the beach, as well as restaurants and souvenirs shops. The fishing village is still there and marks the eastern end of the beach. Strong sea breezes and a hot and dry climate make Mủi Né very popular for kite- and windsurfing though people looking for nightlife may have to go to Phan Thiet, which is only 15 kilometres away.
Mui Ne sees only about half the rainfall of nearby PhanThiet. The sand dunes help protect its unique microclimate, and even during the wet season (from June to September) rains tend to be fairly light and sporadic. Mui Ne's developing a reputation as the action capital of the coast. There's no scuba diving or snorkelling to speak of, but when Nha Trang and Hoi An get the rains, Mui Ne gets the waves. Surfs up from August to December. For windsurfers, the gales howl as well, especially from late October to late April, when swells stir over from the Philippine ty-phoons.
