Bau Trang Mui Ne: Enjoy the sea breeze at the most beautiful white sand dunes in Phan Thiet

Bau Trang Mui Ne is one of the most beautiful and unique tourist destinations of Phan Thiet tourism. The freshwater lake nestled between the sand dunes is the destination of many tourists when they arrive in this sunny and windy land. Let’s explore with Passionate Travel what is so attractive about Bau Trang!

Bau Trang is a small freshwater lake nestled between vast white sand dunes. In recent years, many international models and fashion magazines have chosen Bau Trang as a fashion photo shoot, proving the attractive beauty of this sunny and windy land. Let’s explore with Passionate Travel the attractions and interesting activities in Bau Trang.


1. Bau Trang: A dreamy lake in the middle of a “small desert”

“Bau” means pond or puddle; “White” is the white sand color of the surrounding sand dunes. Bau Trang is a freshwater lake located between sand dunes stretching to the top. Previously, Bau Trang was a large lake, blocked by sand dams by people, so it was divided into two small lakes, Bau Ong and Bau Ba.

Between the successive sand dunes, the scorching sun makes the scene blurry like the Sahara desert. However, every few hundred meters, there are casuarina trees, and green acacia crescents growing up, steadfastly standing against the winds and sandstorms.

In the heart of an endless stretch of white sand, Bau Trang is like a green oasis in the middle of a dry desert with cool blue lakes. From April to May, lotuses in the lake compete to bloom, and the already beautiful scenery is now more magical.

Lotus grows in a lake in the middle of the desert. This scene is really worth it for you to overcome the sun and heat of Binh Thuan, going 65 km from the center of Phan Thiet city to admire.


2. Interesting activities at Bau Trang

Experience the high-speed Jeep

A new tourist service that has been loved by many tourists in recent years when coming to Bau Trang is riding a Jeep, off-road vehicle to explore the sand dunes. For those who love speed and thrills, this will be an experience not to be missed. If traveling in a large group, taking a Jeep will be more suitable. You will be able to surf on the sand dunes at high speed and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Sliding sand

At Bau Trang or any sand dunes in Mui Ne, Phan Thiet, there are locals renting sandboards. From the top of the hill, you sit on the board and start sliding down the sand until the slope is over.

Depending on the slope of the sand hill, the wetness of the sand, and the weight of the guests, the sliding speed will change. Sliding on sand dunes gives you the feeling of sliding on a huge slide made of sand, reminiscent of childhood games.


Boating on Bau Trang

If you come to Bau Trang right in the lotus season, try sailing around the lake. The feeling of gliding among lotus flowers blooming all over the lake, surrounded by a long stretch of white sand is a rare experience that can be found anywhere else.

When should I go to Bau Trang?

The most ideal time to visit Bau Trang is from April to August. If you want to see lotus bloom, April – May is the lotus season in full bloom.

The beauty at Bau Trang changes with each time frame of the day. 5:00 – 9:00 and 16:00 – 18:00 are beautiful time frames when the sun is out, the sand dunes also cool down and you can watch the sunrise or sunset here.


What to prepare when going to Bau Trang?

Sunscreen, a hat, a sun jacket, and sunglasses are indispensable items when traveling to Bau Trang. It’s hot here, and there’s not much shade, so you need to cover it carefully to avoid heatstroke.
