Why White Sand Dunes is special ?

The White Sand Dunes is the top attraction at Mui Ne, after the beach itself. The massive, saharan dunes lay 65 km NE of Phan Thiet. The dunes range from gold to pure white (red dunes may be found further south at Mui Ne village). A small stand of pine trees sit on the southern end of the dune lakes, offering a perfect spot for a picnic and afternoon nap.

What to explore at White Sand Dunes?

The sand dunes were lovely and fun to climb. Many tourists find it's more exciting to rent an ATV for their journey and the price is quite high at 300.000 VND for 1 person. Or if you don't want to spend money on ATVs, walking with bare foot is another good idea. Although most people visit the White Dunes on a tour, getting there yourself is pretty straightforward. Going at your own pace affords you time to really appreciate the area, have a picnic, wipe out a few times sledding down the hot slopes, and make an interesting day away from the beach.

How to get to White Sand Dunes?

Begin your trip heading southwest - the beach will be on your right - along the tourist stretch into Mui Ne village; pass Joe's Art Cafe on the left and Pogo Club farther down on the right. If signs start turning to a mix of Russian and English, you have gone the wrong way on the strip! Easy to miss, the Fairy Stream is reached by a rough path on the left side of the first small bridge that you cross. Continue past the charismatic fishing port on the right, then turn left at the large Christian church on the left; there is a traffic signal. Drive to the end of the road, then turn left at the traffic signal. You will quickly reach a large traffic roundabout; take the first exit to the right. The photogenic Red Dunes will come into view on your left; you must pay 25 cents or buy a drink to park at one of the cafes across the street. Continue past the Red Dunes on the long, coastal road for a bulk of your journey; go straight through the small town and past newly-constructed resorts. When the stretch of coastal road ends, turn left and continue up the hill ignoring what looks like grassy sand dunes on your right .Pass the only petrol station on the right, then take the first red-clay road on your right; a sign indicates that you are near the White Dunes. The dirt road is rocky and unfinished - everything a motorbike driver doesn't enjoy. Continue bouncing along for some time with the sprawling lake on your left side. Do not worry about the White Dunes appearing so far away on the left, the road eventually wraps around the lake and brings you to the parking area.

its a long way from the Muine resorts to this area and the roads kinda rough in parts. A warning about the quad bike prices its something along the lines of highway robbery. You can easily walk to the dunes but if you want to hire a quad bike be really tough on the price you pay as they start around 600k for 20 minutes which is a crazy price.

Further away from the city than the Red Sand Dunes, this is the first place where most of the tours take you. You come here to see the sunrise and hence have to wake up really early in the morning for the tour (I woke up at 4:30 in the morning!).The sand dunes are huge covering a vast amount of land. A good place to take photos especially at Sunrise. The early morning sun casts a golden hue to the sand making it look beautiful!

The White sand dunes are much more impressive than the red ones. I have never been to a desert so this was an incredible experience for me!We did not use a tour for this, we rented a scooter and made our own way there and we are really glad we did as it is much cheaper than a tour.We did not get a quad bike and spoke to some other people who did and they were very disappointed, they the bikes were really slow and got very hot.Would definitely recommend walking all around the dunes!
