Nha Trang Beach
The harmonious beauty of sea and island of Nha Trang coastal city in Khanh Hoa province is rarely found elsewhere. Nha Trang is the capital of Khanh Hoa province. Nha Trang Bay absolutely deserves to be one of the 30 most beautiful bays in the world as classified by the Club of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World.
On the southern coastline of Nha Trang is a long beach of white sand with rows of coconut trees rustling in the wind. Looking to the sea, beautiful green islands float on the surface of the blue sea. God has endowed Nha Trang with ideal geographical conditions. The appearance of Nha Trang city is classic and modern with villas of colonial times standing next to high-rising tourist hotels. Unlike Vung Tau or Da Nang, where beaches are often located remote from the city center, in Nha Trang city tourists can reach the beach just by crossing Tran Phu Boulevard. Sunset and sunrise on Nha Trang Beach are nice.
Ca Na Beach
Ca Na Beach is about three kilometers in length. It resembles the shape of a sickle. It is located in Ninh Phuoc district, Ninh Thuan province, about 30 kilometers south of Phan Rang. On the western side of the National Highway is the majestic Truong Son Mountain sticking out to the coast. The railway running from north to south of Viet Nam crosses this mountain.
Ca Na Beach is an ideal beach thanks to the blue sea, white sand, rocks and mountains. The water is warm and not deep. There is sunshine all year long. The natural landscape here is like a charming picture of water and rocks. Right at the water margin, rocks of all shapes are arranged as if they were overlapped or gathered together. They stretch out to sea and bob in the waves. They are fanciful and like a frock of seals playing on the sea. Just swimming about 20 meters out to the sea from the shore, tourists may see beautiful coral reefs at the depth of only 1.5 meters.
Bai Truoc Beach
Bai Truoc Beach (Front Beach), also known as Bai Tam Ditang Beach (Sunrise Beach), is located southwest of Vung Tau city. It is located between Nui Lon Mountain and Nui Nho Mountain, lying in a beautiful bent line. These mountains seem to suddenly rise from the sea.
At dawn and sunset, the blazing red sun seems to melt into the vast sea. Bai Truoc Beach is shaped like a crescent moon leaning back to the mainland. Tuong Ky and Tao Phung Mountains are the two ends of the crescent moon. The landscape is poetic. Bai Truoc Beach is a berth for ships after their long sea journeys.
Lots of coconut trees are planted on Bai Truoc, so it is also named Hang Dua Bay. Now the Bai Truoc coast is more shaded by newly planted terminalia catappa, plumena rubra L. var acutifolia and willow trees. Under the shady canopy of trees is a park full of flowers for pedestrians.
Nghinh Phong Beach
It is located in the southernmost spot of Vung Tau city between Bai Dua Beach and Bai Sau Beach. From the Nirvana Buddhist Monastery, if tourists go across Mui Dua Beach and along Ha Long Avenue, they will reach Nghinh Phong Beach. Here the wind blows all year long, hence the name “Nghinh Phong” (Facing the Wind). The land strip of Nghinh Phong looks like an arm spreading out to the sea. Vong Nguyet Beach (or 6 Quan Beach) and Huong Phong Beach are located at the two ends of this arm. These two beaches are narrow, but the seawater is very clean. On three sides of the beaches are plunging cliffs, forming a majestic landscape. In the far distance is Hon Ba-Bong Dao Island, which tourists may visit when the tide recedes.
The beaches are clean and deep but the waves are interminable. This sort of waves is beloved by active tourists and people who like strong experiences.
Looking down from high up, Nghinh Phong Beach protrudes into the East Sea like a giant crocodile head. Rocks of strange shapes are arranged around the nose of this crocodile. This is an ideal place for those who like fishing and adventure.
Bai Sau Beach (Rear Beach)
Bai Sau Beach is approximately eight kilometers in length, located southeast of Vung Tau city. It goes from the foothills of Nui Nho Mountain to Cua Lap estuary. It is clean, beautiful and spacious. It is the longest and most romantic beach of Vung Tau. Flowers grow along the Thuy Van Avenue of the beach. On one side of the avenue are modern, bustling streets. On the other side are golden sand grounds with many types of entertainment for people of all ages.
The beach faces the East Sea and leans back on sand hills and woods. Right at the rear part of this beach is Hai Dang Mountain and the cliffs of Hang Doi Cave. On the left side far out at sea is Long Hai Mountain going as far as to Ky Van Mountain.
A poplsr forest grows on Bai Sau Beach. This is a large mixed forest of poplar and casuarina trees. The blue canopy of the forest provides shade to the white sand ground, creating a mild landscape. When just a light breeze is blowing, tiny casuarina leaves give out strange music. Wooden houses similar to houses on stilts are scattered in the poplar forest. The houses are elegant and beautiful and are imbued with the cultural characteristics of the Central Highlands. They are also a destination for visitors.
Bai Dau Beach (Mulberry Beach)
Bai Dau Beach is located north of Vung Tau city, along Tran Phu Road and west of Nui Lon Mountain. It is three kilometers from Bach Dinh Beach (in Front Beach). Bai Dau Beach was formerly known as Vung May Beach because in this locality there was rattan wood. In the early 20th century, a French trader came here to establish a farm for growing mulberry and breeding silkworms. Mulberry trees grew on mountainous slopes along the coast. And Vung May Beach was eventually renamed Bai Dau Beach.
At the two ends of the beach are lots of large rocks jutting out to the sea. The rear part of the beach is a large hollow adjacent to the slopes of Nui Lon Mountain. The rear part of the hollow is surrounded by luxuriant trees. The foothills of Big Mountain and Bai Dau Beach are very steep and are very close to the sea.
Now Bai Dau Beach is being expanded, including small harbors in the middle part of Nui Lon Mountain. Small rock blocks he on yellow and white sand grounds in many beautiful harbors of Bai Dau Beach. Beaches are much protected from the wind. In some coastal sections the sea goes close to the mountains. Cliffs are extremely steep. The statue of the Mother Mary, nearly 30 meters in height, and the statue of Boddhisattva Guan Yin are situated between blue mountains and white buildings.
