It is not uncommon for people to say that the resort town of Mui Ne, close to Phan Thiet City in BinhThuan Province, is home to some of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the country. A little over 200km from Ho Chi Minh City, Mui Ne may not be the closest beach to Vietnam’s largest city, but it is probably the most beautiful. And with an excellent range of facilities to suit virtually every budget, it is easy to see why Mui Ne is making a name for itself as a premium beach destination .
Interestingly, part of the appeal is that there aren’t that many things to do in Mui Ne. Unlike the beaches of Vung Tau to the south and Nha Trang and Da Nang to the north, which are attached to bustling metropolitan areas, the beach at Mui Ne is very quiet. This is really a place to sit back, relax, and just enjoy the cool sea breeze and a dip in the ocean.
Being a resort town, a huge number of Mui Ne hotels have popped up offering stunning beachside accommodation and excellent facilities. These range from 5 star super luxury to more affordable options with more basic offerings- just let us know what you are after and we can let you know the options available.

Another appeal is that it is still part of the mainland so getting to Mui Ne is affordable and easy. Unlike the gorgeous beaches of PhuQuoc and Con Dao, two islands off the coast of Vietnam to which you have to take a flight, Mui Ne is accessible by road from Ho Chi Minh City. There are also limited flight options available to Mui Ne from Hanoi, either to PhanThiet or NhaTrang.
Do not miss out Mui Ne beach at sunrise or sunset for spectacular colors.
But very few of us are satisfied with just a beach, so it’s a good thing that Mui Ne does have something else to keep you occupied when sitting back with a cocktail by the pool starts to get tedious. The red and white sand dunes, of which the white are more impressive, are worth visiting for the spectacular colors at sunrise and sunset. Virtually every Mui Ne travel guide will feature the dunes as the number 1 thing to do in the area, and when you’re sitting back watching a gorgeous sunset as the sand begins to reflect the brilliant reds and oranges, its easy to see why.
