2. How is Mui Nghe unique?

Mui Nghe is one of three mountains associated with the history of the formation of the Son Tra peninsula. The reason it is called Mui Nghe or Hon Nghe comes from the shape of the mountain like a sea lion lying with its head facing the rocky mountain, facing the sea.

Viewed from above, Mui Nghe stands out with its clear blue sea water, whispering waves and white foam. In the middle of Mui Nghe is a clear, peaceful and wild natural lake, attracting many tourists.

3. When is the best time to visit Mui Nghe?

The climate in Da Nang is divisive into two seasons: dry season and rainy season. The ideal time to explore Mui Nghe is from February to September every year. At this time, the weather in Da Nang is sunny, little rain, clear blue sky and calm sea water. It is convenient for transportation and very suitable for visitors to participate in outdoor experience activities.

If you want to see the most beautiful morning sunlight on Mui Nghe, you should come here between 4 and 5 am. At this time, the sun gradually appeared on the beach, creating a beautiful sunrise scene. In addition, the afternoon sunset on Mui Nghe is equally impressive.

Note: You should avoid going to Mui Nghe in November and December because this is the peak rainy season, the road is slippery and can be very risky.

4. How to get to Mui Nghe from Da Nang city?

About 24 km from Da Nang city center, it will take visitors about 35 minutes to travel. Furthermore, the road to get here is very difficult, with many obstacles. You can get to Mui Nghe in 2 ways: road and waterway.

  • By road: Tourists will follow the road to Vo Nguyen Giap beach to Son Tra mountain. Next, you pass Linh Ung Pagoda and turn onto the path up to the thousand-year-old banyan tree. Continue moving to the end of the road and then turn into the forest road to Mui Nghe. Move another 15 minutes to the slope that drops down to the sea, then go another 5 minutes to reach it.
  • By waterway: This is a suitable choice for those who like the feeling of floating on the sea. Because you will be able to freely admire the scenery and enjoy the cool sea breeze. But because there were too many rocks, the canoe could not dock. So visitors should consider carefully.

According to our travel experience, you should choose a motorbike as your main means of transportation. Because the road to get here is really steep and difficult to go. Furthermore, motorbikes also help you freely visit and see many other famous relics. And you can freely schedule your schedule, saving on travel costs. However, you can also choose a taxi or car but it is not as convenient.
