Hello, 4 days would be fine, I would stay in a hotel as any Airbnb places won't be in a convenient location. Ham Thien is the best location I believe, plenty of places to stay, I would go with a private transfer to Nhatrang, which can be organised by your hotel or any of the many travel agents in the area, go in a larger vehicle for comfort maybe a 12 seater. Hiep Hoa is a nice family run beachside resort with pool at an excellent price.

Ham Tien is really the destination that is known and sold as Mui Ne. There are Resorts and Hotels in Mui Ne but your options are much broader in Ham Tien. You don't say what time of year you are planning on, so I would suggest that you make yourselves aware of the heat from June to August as this can limit your daytime activities. This area is SE Asia's premier kite-surfing area so the wind does get up between 11am and 3pm. Your children may find this interesting.

Ham Tien is a very laid back type of place reminiscent of old Byron Bay or Noosa before it all happened. In the evening it has many restaurants and a trip to Joe's for a bit of music is popular. As Brent says Hiep Hoa is excellent value.

If you want to go on to Nha Trang you can take a 4 hour coach ride which is quite good or maybe a trip inland to Da Lat for a cooler time in the highlands. From there you can fly back to HCMC.

Cheers Ross

Having just recently returned from Mui Ne definitely book a hotel with beach access as we did and were fortunate we met many people frustrated at the limited beach access from other accommodation. I find this completely wrong. Wish it would stop.

There is a belief amongst some hotels that they own the beach which is quite wrong. The beaches of Vietnam are public. Problem is, some Resorts just make it difficult to get through. Any place that has a beachfront business will welcome visitors crossing through their property as it is good for business.

Its down to research, as the there are really inexpensive waterfront places in Ham Tien (the centre) where depending on seasons, rooms from $25 can be obtained online.
