Water sports

Kitesurfing: With beautiful beaches, strong and steady winds, Mui Ne is quickly growing into one of the most popular kiteboarding and windsurfing sights in Asia. The windy season starts around September/October and lasts until April/May. There are currently four certified Kitesurfing schools in Mui Ne:

Jibes at Jibes and the Full Moon Resort
Windchimes at the Saigon Mui Ne Resort

Surfing: Most Vietnamese beaches have fairly mild waves. The best place to surf in Vietnam is China Beach, Da Nang, near the North End. There are no waves during the summer but waves start to pick up from late September/October and may last until May. Vietnam doesn’t have any real surf shops that sell equipment or provide lessons yet, but a board can be rented in Da Nang from Tam’s Pub 43 Ho Xuan Huong street or by asking around in local hotels.

Softer waves suitable for beginners can be found in Mui Ne, Phan Thiet with rentals available around the area.

While the waves may not be world-class, one advantage is that you can have them to yourself!

Kayaking: Kayaking is one of the best ways to explore the beautiful waters and various limestone islands in Ha Long bay. Tours are available from 2 days to 2 weeks, with excellent guide and food. Many tours are a combination of kayaking and trekking, cycling. Kayak rentals and tours are provided by various centers:
