If you like relaxing, lounging on the beach, or getting a massage, then this place is for you. Mui Ne is a fishing village and I had some good seafood barbecues, which I'm sure you would enjoy too. You'll find them on the sea shore and it's a good opportunity to talk to the locals! But I wasn't completely in love with Mui Ne because it has been polluted by tourism. There are too many people asking you for things all the time!
There are lots of water sports available at Mui Ne, like kite surfing or wind surfing.
I rented a motorbike and did the usual tourist circuit: visit the red dunes, the white dunes and the fairy canyon. Without question the white dune are the best. The site is smaller, near the lake and not yet under attack from the tourists.
The walk through the fairy canyon is short but nice. I loved the colours of the countryside!
The town of Mui Ne has one main street, you cannot get lost. I had a pleasant stay, mainly due to great encounters.
What I liked most: a 4x4 ride over the sand dunes. I spent a memorable half-day with an adorable Vietnamese couple. The area is not vast, but it is very exotic. The tour combines with different types canyons with a river running through them. I appreciated being able to walk in the water in this different scenery and left to my own devices.
The beach at Mui Ne holds no great interest. It is partly concreted and tiny; I have seen far better during my stay in Vietnam. By contrast, the restaurants all along the street are really friendly and very good. The view, the fresh air, the relaxed atmosphere of Mui Ne are a must for lovers of fish and seafood.
