This sand dune is located in Tuan Tu village, An Hai commune, Ninh Phuoc district, Ninh Thuan. It covers an area of 700 hectares, lies from 20m to 100m above sea level, and especially owns the unique red color.
Nam Cuong sand dune is enveloped by mountains, seas, and villages, creating spectacular natural beauty. The best time to visit this destination is at sunrise and sunset as the reflection of sunshine colors in its smooth sand adds another dimension to its stunning beauty, according to Vietnamnet.
A special feature of Nam Cuong sand dune is the change in its appearance every hour and every day. Just a gust of wind can change its appearance. After one night, the footprints of humans and animals on the sand are completely erased, returning this place the inherently smooth sand.
