Vung Moi Bay is located to the east of Phu My district, Binh Dinh province. It is divided into two parts by Go Diia Mountain and Qua Phu Mountain (Widow Mountain). In the bay there are also some small islands and coral reefs. On the western side are fishing villages located on white sand grounds, among which are Bach Sa Dong Cave (White sand Cave) and Go Son Mound (Red Stones Mound).
Vung Moi Bay is a landing point for fishing boats and a nearshore fishery of the local people. Now in the bay are wrecks of Japanese ships sunk during the war. Vung Moi Bay is also famous for the Rong Cape (Dragon Cape) and Hon Nuoc lighthouse on Go Dua Mountain lighting the bay.

Vung Ro Bay
Vung Ro is a small bay of Hoa Xuan Nam commune, Dong Hoa district, Phu Yen province. The area of water surface is 16.4 km2. On the northern, eastern and western sides of Vung Ro are three high mountain ranges shielding the bay. Hon Nua Mountain of 105 meters in height is on the southern side of the bay. On the island is a large lighthouse.
In the southeast of Phu Yen province is located a small peninsula looking like a bird’s head. This peninsula is composed of Vung Ro Mountain with many slopes, capes and chasms. Being embraced by this mountain, Vung Ro becomes a fishery and a good port where vessels may anchor and escape from storms.
Vung Ro Bay is an international seaport. Many kinds of Vietnamese commodities are exported from Vung Ro Bay. It is as deep as 21 meters. Ships weighing up to 5,000 tons may access Vung Ro Bay port. The natural conditions of the port are the more ideal because Da Bia Stone Mountain shields this port from the northeastern wind.
In 1966 the government of the Republic of Viet Nam built Vung Ro Bay port as a military port. Vung Ro Bay formerly was the site where weapons secretly transported from the North to the South were unloaded. The historic “unnumbered” ships carried these weapons. From 1964 to 1965, four such ships safely docked in Vung Ro Bay, bringing thousands of tons of weapons to battlefields in the south of Central Viet Nam and the Central Highlands. Vung Ro Bay was recognized by the government of the SRVN as a historical and cultural vestige of the national level.
Vung Ro Bay is a famous beautiful port. There is the Vung Ro village of Tuy Hoa district. About ten kilometers to the north of this village is situated Bai Mon beach – a natural landscape of Hoa Tam commune. Vung Ro village is located on the road coming from Ca pass. Bai Mon beach is located on a bank of smooth white sand. It is ten hectares in area and three kilometers in length. The bank is gently sloping with clean blue water and calm waves. It is an ideal place for swimming. In Bai Mon Beach there is a very interesting stream of cool fresh water.
Over the Ca Mountain pass is Dai Lanh beach. Right in the time of King Minh Mang (19th century) Dai Lanh Beach was regarded as one of the scenic spots of the country and its name was carved in a copper urn in the Hue royal capital. Dai Lanh is possibly a rare beach in our country where the environment is not polluted and seawater is still pure. The Organization of World Tourism (OWT) evaluates Dai Lanh- Vung Ro as one of the most scenic spots in Asia and the Far East, based on its natural conditions and the potential of the sea and islands.
Now the government has invested in building Vung Ro Bay into a universal tourist zone of the state. Phu Yen province is now putting investment to open a road linking Vung Ro Bay with Hoa Hiep industrial zone, Tuy Hoa airport and Tuy Hoa city for economic development.
