ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the seaside hideaway town of Mui Ne, Vietnam. It states that the picturesque fishing village has more palm trees than people who set off to sea in coracles. Beaches are tranquil, the surrounding scenery filled with towering dunes and canyons. The place is becoming famous for hosting one of the fastest growing sports, kitesurfing. The game puts people on scaled-down surfboards, riding into and over the surf, pulled by soaring kites.
