Hiking/Running

White Sand Dunes
White Sand Dunes

Mui Ne's gorgeous tropical beaches and the nearby White Sand Dunes all offer great hiking opportunities.

The yearly Le Fruit Triathlon is held in Mui Ne on June 1, and includes swimming, running and mountain biking.


Swimming

Victoria Resort
One of Victoria's two relaxing pools.

Swim at one of several nearby beaches, or in swimming pools offered by most resorts. Please keep in mind that healthy beaches change seasonaly. Part of the year, Mui Ne Beach is steep and the water is deep. The rest of the time the beach is broad and shallow.

Half the year the current is east to west, and the other half of the year the current goes in the opposite direction. In November and December it cam be very windy and the waves are very rough in late afternoon. Swim with great caution at this time and beware of strong rip currents.

Also watch for careless kiteboarders who may not see you. It is best to swim in the morning or late afternoons to avoid them.

Jellyfish are mostly seasonal. When the water is calm, clear and warm, watch for them spawning in shallow water. Jellyfish tend to be an all-or-nothing phenomenon in Mui Ne.

White it is very beautiful, we really can not recommend swimming at Ganh Beach (Suoi Hong), behind Mui Ne Village proper, because the rip tides are too strong and unpredictable. There are many stories of local children drowning.

The yearly Le Fruit Triathlon is held in Mui Ne on June 1, and includes swimming, running and mountain biking.


Scuba Diving and Snorkeling

Ca Na
The rocky coastline at Ca Na makes for great reef snorkeling.

The Best diving in Binh Thuan Province (or all of Vietnam for that matter) is at Ca Na Beach, 2.5hrs northwest of Mui Ne. The water is clear, the coral reefs are pristine, and the whole area as bursting with marine life. One thing Ca Na is lacking is very many tourists and the resorts to contain them. Vietnam Scuba has a very "for Koreans, by Koreans" diving establishment there. The website has some English, but we have not confirmed if anyone on staff speaks English fluently. Click here to read more about the scuba diving potentials at Ca Na Beach and the Hon Cau-Vinh Hao Proposed Marine Protected Area. Though all but undiscovered, Phu Quy Island Proposed Marine Protected Area also has a potential for scuba diving and snorkeling in coral reefs (but beware of sharks!).

From time to time, shipwrecks are discovered and salvaged off the coast of Binh Thuan Province. In the summer of 2004, three tonnes of coins and a cannon were discovered off Ham Tan District. Divers salvaged the coins from an ancient ship after finding a string of old shekels. Both the coins and the cannon were dated from 1822, during Minh Mang's reign, according to officials in Binh Thuan. The most notable shipwreck salvage is know as the "Binh Thuan Shipwreck" (full article coming soon).

Kiteboarding, Windsurfing & Surfing

Asia (and the lowest rainfall in all of Vietnam). Every day is a perfect day for kiteboarding in Mui Ne. Visit our Mui Ne Kiteboarding page for more.
