Vung Bau Beach is a beautiful yellow sand crescent shaped wild beach located in the north western part of the island. Learn more about this beach today!
Vung Bau Beach lies in-between Bai Dai Beach in the north and Cua Can Beach in the south. The beach is remote enough to feel like you have the area all to yourself yet it is close enough to a few resorts in case you feel like staying overnight or grabbing a bite to eat. From the beach you can see the idyllic Hon Mong Tay also known as Fingernail Island, a great place to swim, snorkel, and fish.
The sand is powdery and dark yellow in color and the beach is relatively clean without too much ocean or human debris scattered about.
The foliage around the beach is also interesting, with a mix of tall grass, various coastal flowers, and a combination of poplar and coconut palm trees. The shoreline is approximately 4.5 km in length.
The sea here is calm during the dry season and quite rough during the wet season and the color of the water is a combination of various shades of blue. The slope into the sea is quite low making it safe for kids and non-swimmers alike to enter and exit the ocean without fear. On the ocean floor you may encounter starfish, conch, and maybe a few sea urchins so please be careful where you place your feet.
