Mui Ne is a coastal fishing town in the south-central Bình Thuan Province of Vietnam. The town, with approximately 25,000 residents is a ward of the city of Phan Thiet. Mui Ne and the other wards of Phan Thiet that stretch along the coast for approximately 50 kilometers have been transformed into a resort destination since the mid 1990s, when many visited the area to view the solar eclipse of October 24, 1995. Most notably, tourism has developed in the area from the city center to Mui Ne, which has more than a hundred beach resorts, as well as restaurants, bars, shops and cafes.

Mũi Né ward has two beaches; Ganh Beach and Suoi Nuoc Beach, both with a number of resorts and a few shops and restaurants. But the most highly developed area is Rang Beach in Ham Tien ward (often erroneously called "Mui Ne Beach" by foreigners), which extends west of Mui Ne. Strong sea breezes make all three beaches very popular for kitesurfing and windsurfing.

The tourist season is from December to April. The average temperature is 27 °C, and the climate is hot and dry much of the year.

Mui Ne is well known for unique white sand dunes, featuring several lakes and even swamps straight in the middle of sandy terrain. It is also the only place in Vietnam with hot air balloon ride service for adventurous tourists.
