"Mui Ne Sand Dunes", also known as "Red Sand Dunes", are located in Quarter 5 of Mui Ne Ward, Phan Thiet City. This is one of the giant sandy beaches that have no fixed location because the whole sand hill is always moving. The name "Red sand dunes" originates from the unique color of sand here. In addition to the common white and golden sand found elsewhere, the red sand here is born from a combination of fine sand and iron ore (previously, this area had an age-old iron mine).
The sand dunes here are also called the Flying Sand Dunes because their shape changes every day and every hour. That is the magic of the sand hill, appealing Mui Ne tourists to discovering that beauty without feeling bored.

If we travel to Mui Ne to visit the sand hill in the wind season, the sand dunes change their shapes through every whirlwind. These changes take place every hour and it is difficult to see those images being reconstructed. The cause of this special phenomenon is because the sand hill is influenced by natural factors such as monsoon, climate, weather ... , especially the monsoon. The two Northeast and Southwest monsoon mechanisms directly affect this region, which causes the phenomenon of constant changes in the appearance and shape of the sand hill, thereby creating stunning unique landscapes.
