About Mui Ne

The solar eclipse on October 24, 1995 kickstarted the transformation of the beach from an isolated stretch of sand to the resort town of today. Luckily, the area has managed to retain much of its charm. The beach is officially called Rung Beach but is also colloquially known as Mui Ne after the fishing village in the east.

While there’s no snorkelling or scuba diving due to the high winds on the coast, Mui Ne gets the surf and has much to offer the adrenalin junkie. It’s not uncommon to see dozens of kitesurfers, windsurfers and jet skiers zipping by on any given day. There are over 20 kitesurfing schools in the area with classes for all levels of experience. Other attractions nearby include the famous White Sand Dunes and Red Sand Dunes, and the magical landscape of Fairy Spring. Mui Ne is 210km northeast of Ho Chi Minh City, 180km south of Da Lat and 250km southwest of Nha Trang.
