Twenty years ago, Mui Ne was nothing but a deserted road running along an equally deserted beach. Now there's a 15-km (9-mile) stretch of resorts, restaurants, and souvenir shops. There is not much to the town, which is usually not a problem for those planning to hole up in a luxurious resort and enjoy the amenities—massages, dips in the pool, local seafood, and cocktails on the beach. Despite the difficulty of getting to this narrow (and windy) beach and the relative dearth of worthwhile sights, international tourists, including hordes of Russians, flock here. In recent years, Mui Ne has also become an international destination for kitesurfers, who converge during the windy season from November to April.
