We arrived at the sanddunes around 4 pm which was perfect because the Sand wasn't too hot. After walking through the dunes we enjoyed a beautiful sunset:) We read a lot of negative comments about the children selling the "plastic slides", but if you tell them kindly you don't need one they leave you alone.

Even though it is along coastal region, the same seemed quite different from beach sand. I went there around 3.30 pm and it was really hot. I guess it wasnt the time for day trips as there was relatively no one. And my gf and i got a whole big area for ourselves. It was surprising not dirty as some... More

You can play Sand sliding at Red Sand beach at cost 20k vnd per person, shouldn't pay higher than this price. Be careful of your belongings! These kids are pickpocket, they steal my brother's phone when they helped him to play sliding and they asked to exchange with 2million vnd. However, it is so beautiful and very nice to take... More

Good view from the top and worth a visit because it doesn't cost anything except the taxi to get there. Keep going and visit the white sands once you have seen it.

Pass. Really nothing to do but go for a walk and there is garbage strewn about. It's a complete waste of time. Drive by look at red sands. Move on.

Over the years have visited the Red Dunes a number of times, as recently as February. The Dunes are easily accessible from the main coastal road, and adjoins the Mui Ne Village. The Red Dunes are part of the Coastal desert, reportedly the only desert in South East Asia. Generally access is free. The Red Dunes are well worth a... More

They will rent you the plastic things to slide down, but it's not awesome. You can do it, but it's not something amazing. Nice view though from there!

This is huge sand dune covering many kilometres. With the strong wind blowing, the contours are changing every now and then. The walk up to the sand dune is already a challenge. But must really takes your time to enjoy the walk. It is also a nice place to takes photos as the scene is changing. Always prepare yourself with... More

This place is nice, you can watch the sunset, and slide on the duns. It is quite touristy so don't be surprised by the groups of tourists.
