White Dunes

Arguably the most impressive attraction in the area, located around 35 km north from the main strip of Mui Ne, the massive formations of white dunes give a feel of a desert and provide stunning views of endless sandhills extending to the horizon. The most convenient way to get there is to book a tour that you can schedule at any time and even as early as 4 am if you aim to see the sunrise. The tour usually covers other attractions like Red Dunes and Fairy Stream, so remember to agree on the start and end of the tour and how much time you will spend in each spot. The price of a tour is about 500k VND for two people, and you will be picked up from your hotel. Renting a motorbike is an alternative option that gives you more flexibility. But, make sure you have all the necessary documents and valid driving license as there is a high chance of police checks on the way. Once you get to the dunes, you can rent a quad for 400k. The quad ride is a more comfortable option to take you up a hill. Later on, you can choose a wild ride down a steep hill or a longer, safer route instead. Taking a 30-minute walk to the top is a more challenging option, and walking in deep sand might be exhausting. Watching the sunrise from the top of a dune is remarkable. The dunes stretch 20 km along the coast, and you will see endless ridges up to the horizon. The lake at the bottom of the dunes with pink lotus flowers and a little pine forest next to it will add contrast to the scenery. There are a few reasons why it is recommended to get there early: • You will see the spectacle of colors in the sky while the sun is rising. • You will beat the crowds and have that feel of raw and desolate nature. • You will avoid scorching heat. Those looking for unusual thrills can ride an ostrich near the entrance to the dunes. It is advertised as a “new feel.” Indeed, it would be difficult to find a similar experience. Available for people of all ages.
