Mui Ne is a precious gift of Nature, with the most beautiful sand - banks in Vietnam. The sand gathers together making the endless accumulated hills. Sand hills have been sources of inspiration for numerous photographers for years. Standing on top hills, you can easily feel the cool winds from the sea. Seldom can tiredness so quickly disappear!
Mui Ne is a group of beaches including Ong Dia beach, Front beach and Back Beach, from 22km North Eastern Phan Thiet, Binh Thuan Province. The name “Mui Ne” derived from the fact that fishersmen used to get in here to hide the storm on their fishing days. “Mui” means cape, and “Ne” means hiding. Tourists can easily be interested in the deep blue of the sea, the golden of the sun and sand, all converging in warmth and purity. Mui Ne beauty is mixture of many different fascinating elements, such as beautiful beaches gently sloping to the sea, gentle breezes, pure sea, blue sky, and cristine reddish sand dunes. More importantly, though grown up from a distant seaside far from the highway (with scattered poor fishing villages) to a community of hundreds of high-quality resorts, Mui Ne is still called the “Desert of golden sand”. Still, visiting Mui Ne, you let your mind be deep in the unique features of fishing village “Mui Ne” – a typical Vietnam’s fishing seaside land in its daily life.
