What to do in Mui Ne
Mui Ne is quite a popular beach destination and belongs to one of the best destinations for wind and kite surfers in Asia. When you are not so much into wind or kite surfing, you can explore the enormous red sand dunes, the ferry springs or relax on the beach. However, keep in mind that this destination is known for wind surfing so don’t expect to spend your day on a windless beach.
Also worth mentioning is that the beaches started to suffer from erosion in the last years. Soft sand beach is slowly being replaced by reef. You can still find several nice strokes of sandy beach, but many people choose to stay in one of the large resorts with their own swimming pools. When you stay in Mui Ne, make sure you visit the large Food Court on the main street. Here you can try out countless delicious dishes from all over the world.
Note that Mui Ne has become very popular by Russian tourists, so don’t be surprised to see even the menu’s translated into the Russian language. When you are looking for a more authentic experience, consider staying in Quy Nhon instead of Mui Ne. In Quy Nhon, you will find very nice beaches and friendly locals will greet you with a big smile!
