For those who come to Vietnam to windsurf, I would advise to also visit the less popular, but not less windy city of Phan Rang. You can go there from Mui Ne in three ways: by motorbike, bus or rental car. This year we chose the third option. The journey From Mui Ne to Phan Rang takes around 2.5 hours.

Phan Rang is a small city 160km north of Mui Ne. There are less tourists, no bar or restaurants. The windsurfing conditions however are amazing: the strong wind doesn’t create large waves or chop.
Perhaps, this is the only place in Vietnam where you can sail on perfectly flat water. The downsides to the spot are the shallow bottom and the reefs with rocks.
Just a few years ago this spot was unknown. Only a few people went there for the flat water. This year the situation has changed. More kiters from Mui Ne come here now. But you can also find a place, where it is less crowded.
