NDO – The southern province of Ninh Thuan is a land full of sunshine and wind all year round; therefore, many places in the locality are deserted, creating immensely beautiful sand dunes such as the Nam Cuong red sand dune, Tuan Tu white sand dune and Phuoc Dinh mobile sand dune.

The sand dunes in Ninh Thuan are capable of self-displacement, creatingamazing phenomena.

Nam Cuong red sand dune

The sand dune, located in Tuan Tu village, An Hai commune, Ninh Phuoc district, covers an area of 700 hectares and an altitude of 20m to 100m above sea level. Notably, it has a rare red colour. Nam Cuong dune is surrounded by mountains, seas and villages, making it a lively scene. The best time to take beautiful photos at Nam Cuong sand dune is in the early morning or late afternoon when the light radiation makes the dune’s red colouration more prominent.

The special feature of the Nam Cuong dune is the change in its appearance every day and every hour. Just a gust of wind can change its visage After one night, the footprints of humans and animals on the sand area are completely erased, returning inherent smoothness to the dune.
