Mui Ne

A pretty seaside town on Vietnam's southeast coast, Mui Ne has been a popular holiday destination for locals and travelers alike for some time. Over the last fifteen years, tourism has built steadily in the area and now the pristine crescent bay is lined with resorts and restaurants, filled with happy holidaymakers. All the action is arranged along the main road which is well serviced with taxis and itss easy to get from one end of town to the other. With plenty of activities available, there is never a dull moment. Surrounding the town are areas of natural beauty from mini canyons to saharan sand dunes - perfect for an afternoon of sliding. Get a taste for local life amongst the bustle of the market or the aromas of the fish sauce plant. Most popular, of course is the Mui Ne's sandy beach and rolling waves, welcoming watery thrillseekers and surfers as well as those those in search of a restful, relaxing sunbathe or a dip in the ocean.

Experiences

A handpicked selection of experiences endorsed by our experts. If you can’t see what you’re looking for, let us know, as our extensive network of local contacts can open many doors.

Fish Sauce Plants

Pay a visit to the flavorful factory responsible for Vietnam’s ubiquitous nuoc mam (fish sauce). Here the mixture of anchovies and squid juice is prepared in huge vats and then left to ferment in the heat of the sun, before being shipped around the country.

Golf

Boasting the best par-3 hole in Vietnam, the Ocean Dunes Golf Club has a great reputation among golf aficionados. Just a short hop from Mui Ne, down the coast towards Phan Thiet, pros and amateurs alike can work on their swing around 18 holes, or relax in the elegant clubhouse.

Market

Just north of Mui Ne bay, along the coast, lies a sleepy fishing village, home to countless colorful little boats bringing delicious fresh seafood to the market. For a truly local experience, don’t miss a stroll around to take in the sights and smells.

Mui Ne Cooking School

Overlooking the ocean, in lush gardens, the Mui Ne Cooking School offers the chance for visitors to learn to cook real Vietnamese cuisine with expert locals. A class includes a tour of the local market to buy ingredients and a number of authentic recipes.

Phan Thiet

A short drive down the coast from Mui Ne, Phan Thiet is one of Vietnam’s most important fishing ports. It’s worth the journey to experience a busy, working port, to see the day’s catch being brought ashore and to enjoy some truly fresh local seafood.

Po Sha Inu Tower

A derelict remainder of the ancient Cham people who once ruled Vietnam stands atop Ong Hoang Hill, overlooking Mui Ne bay. The intricately-carved stone towers of Po Sha Inu attract visitors all year round with their crumbling grandeur.

Sand duning

Just out of Mui Ne bay are two sets of sand dunes. The dramatically-colored red dunes undulate down to the ocean, while the larger white dunes stretch for miles around a crystal blue lake filled with lotus flowers. Adventurous sand-surfers flock to both sets to slide down the slopes or to sit with a picnic, enjoying the views of the water.

Watersports

Because of its tropical climate and the strong breezes to which it is exposed, Mui Ne is a popular destination for watersports. Kitesurfers and windsurfers flock in their droves to the beach in high season for a day on the water.
