Named for its apparent likeness to the head of a stag (the people of Ha Tien have better imaginations than the rest of us), this peninsula offers beach time.
If you're coming from Phu Quoc, you won't be impressed -- though the yellow-brown sand is clean, the water calm and clear, it really pales in comparison to those found on the island. It’ll do if you’re keen for a splash and it will satisfy a hungry-thirsty traveller.
Mui Nai is a fairly popular spot for Vietnamese on a short holiday so it’s been built up with seafood stands, lounge chairs, vendors, inner tube rentals and umbrellas cemented into the ground. However, if you’ve allotted a day of beach time in Ha Tien, then we recommend you do a daytrip to beautiful Hai Tac/Pirate Island instead.
Mui Nai beach is six kilometres south of the border of Cambodia or a six-kilometre drive from Ha Tien, easily reached by motorbike or taxi.
