The shop at Jibe's Beach Club in the center of Mui Ne stocks a wide range of products to make sure that you have a good time on the beach.

Designed like a wooden house and with a roof made of water coconut leaves, the shop is linked to Jibe's coconut shaded bar on the shore of beautiful windy Mui Ne Beach in Phan Thiet Town, Binh Thuan Province.

More and more tourists are going to Mui Ne for fun in the sun and on the water. If you're taking a relaxing holiday there and fancy a go at surfing, kite boarding or windsurfing, everything you need can be found at Jibe's Beach Club.

Besides selling the basics like bikinis, swimming togs, sunglasses and sunscreen, Jibe's sells and rents out surfboards, sailing boats, and windsurfing and kitesurfing gear. It also runs classes to teach the elements of these sports, one of the first outfits to do so in Vietnam.

There are also Vietnamese handicrafts in profusion, ranging from colorful silk beaded tops to bracelets made of silver stone, buffalo horn and mother of pearl.

"It's a nice surprise to find silk ao yem (traditional Vietnamese undergarment) here. Nowadays it is hard to find something traditional like this in town for just eleven US dollars," said Nguyen Mai, a tourist who chose one dark blue silk skirt decorated with beads.

"I'm interested in the handmade bracelets here. The designers have obviously paid attention to the smallest details. These exotic designs represent Vietnam's diverse culture so I bought them to give to my mum and sister," said Sarah Milliot, a tourist from France who bought the silver and mother of pearl bracelets.

For tourists who are not interested in shopping, some postcards for friends back home can be a good option.
