All About My Khe Beach In Quang Ngai

Mỹ Khê Beach is a 7km stretch of clean white sandy beach located 15km's east of Quảng Ngãi city in central Vietnam. It is a mainland coastal beach similar to the famous My Khe Beach found in Danang however there is one big difference which is immediately noticeable upon arrival – the My Khe Beach in Quang Ngai is devoid of the sounds of traffic.
