About 125km to the Southeast from Ho Chi Minh City, lies the Vung Tau peninsula, the curved point of ‘S’ letter (map of Vietnam). From this point, it is easy to catch both the moments of sunrise and sunset on the sea.
Thanks to its extensive beaches, Vung Tau is one of the most favorite point of tourists’. Most of visitors would prefer sightseeing at Front Beach (Bai Truoc) and go swimming at Back Beach (Bai Sau).
Bai Truoc (translated as “front beach” in Vietnamese) is in the West of Vung Tau city. This is where the sun goes down. The beach is considered the facade of Vung Tau city. It is also known as Tam Duong beach or Hang Dua bay. Besides the best location, visitors prefer the beach as many restaurants and elegant hotels are built here. Sparking, colorful and bright light boulevard make Bai Truoc more beautiful.
Bai Sau (Back beach, also Thuy Van beach) is opposite to Bai Truoc. The beach is well-known for its over 10 km of fine sand seaside. The place is always busy with countless of tourists from local regions and those who come from far away. Every weekends and holidays, thousands of people hang out at this place for swimming and entertainment. At the beach tourists also have opportunities to experience tons of exciting activities.
From Bai Truoc, Halong street curls to Bai Dua (Or pineapple beach in English). Long time ago the beach is home to so many pineapple trees so local people just named it Bai Dua. It also named Lang Du beach after the name of the first local restaurant. At the beach, seawater flows go far into the land and rocky mountains stretch far to the sea make the place the romantic hidden beach.
In the North of city , at the foot of Nui Lon (Big Mount) is Bai Dau, the name was given the same way people named Bai Dua, there used to be so many mudberry and ratten (Dau in Vietnamese) grew here. However, today the plants all went leaving a windless beach with lots of rock.
