Mui Ne Travel And Tourist Guide

If you look at a guidebook to Vietnam from the 1990s, you won’t find any mention of Mui Ne. That’s because it didn’t exist as a place for tourists; it was just a sleepy fishing village on the coast near Phan Thiet, about 200km east of Saigon.

Then a developer spotted its long curve of attractive beach and thought it would appeal to tourists. The rest, as they say, is history. Today Mui Ne is one of Vietnam’s fastest-growing resorts, offering not only a pretty palm-fringed beach but also good conditions for wind-surfing and kite-surfing.

Mui Ne Guide - Kitesurfing Hotspot of Southeast Asia

One factor that has contributed to Mui Ne’s rise to fame is that it is within a few hours’ drive of Saigon, so has become a popular weekend bolthole for expats and Vietnamese alike. With escapees from the city providing a regular clientele at weekends, resort owners have continued to build and expand their properties, pushing up the room rates at weekends when demand increases.

Mui Ne also offers the thrill of learning or practicing the sports of wind-surfing or kite-surfing, especially between August and December when the winds get up. The downside of these sea breezes is that they cause the sands to shift, and under certain weather conditions some resorts have no beach frontage at all.

For the short-stay visitor, Mui Ne is a restful tourist enclave with some excellent lodging options (most resorts are upmarket). Most people come to Mui Ne to relax and unwind or to hit the surf, but there are a few nearby attractions that are worth a look.

On the road leading to the village, a side turn leads to the Po Shanu Towers, small examples of towers built by the Cham which are iconics in this part of the country. Set back from the coast, Fairy spring is a delightful stream bordered by white and red sand dunes, which form an attraction in themselves. Local tour groups offer trips out to the dunes, where adventurous types can try their hand at sand-sledding.
