Travelling onward from Quy Nhon, pass the Thi Nai Sea bridge and go straight ahead in Quy Nhon-Nhon Hoi route. Make sure that you follow the signposts on route to the centre of Nhon Ly commune from where you have to walk around 10 minutes to reach the golden sandy hills of Quy Nhon.
Things to do
An exciting activity that one shouldn’t miss in the Phuong Mai Sand Dunes is sand skiing. Using wood boards to zoom across the sandy hills is an exhilarating experience that one must have in a lifetime.
If you visit the Phuong Mai Sand Dunes every day, you may notice that the patterns in the sand and the shape of sand mountains greet you in various forms. This is due to the Nhon Ly sea breeze, which carves mesmerising patterns on the dunes for many miles.
The more you walk along its long sandy stretches, the more you’d feel like a tiny ant under the immense blue skies and miles of dunes. Once you climb up to the top of a high dune, you’d be able to appreciate the deep blue Nhon Ly Beach.
