Peace and quiet

Tranquility is the name of the game where the swamp meets the sea at Khai Long Beach
Though the beach might not be as conventionally stunning as Nha Trang or Phan Thiet, it’s the wildness of the area that attracts travelers.
The untouched beach at the end of a swampy jungle is peaceful and soothing, the way a beach should be.
There’s no better place to enjoy a lunch of fresh clams, shrimp and crab than on Khai Long. When the afternoon breeze blows gently and the sea calms quietly, stillness and silence fall over the beach like a warm blanket.
The soft waves make Khai Long a good spot for swimming, with Khoai Islet lingering in the distance off shore.
Fishermen can be seen between the two pieces of land, casting their nets and hauling their catches onto old, brightly colored boats.
Khai Long’s three-kilometer beach extends to almost link with Khoai Islet during low tide. At times, the water is so shallow you can walk nearly all the way there.
Given the beach’s location the cape, the panoramic views of both east and west make this a rare spot where visitors can catch both the sunrise and the sunset.
The areas surrounding Khai Long, more than six hours from Ho Chi Minh City by car, are rich with lush fruit orchards lining the roads, so don’t hesitate to try homegrown local specialties. The adventurous can even reach the beach by boat.
The area’s Fish and Crab Festivals, which take place in April and August respectively, are also unique treats.
For those looking to stay the night at Khai Long, the Ly Thanh Long Tourist
Resort has guest houses, camping options, its own beach, a restaurant, entertainment,
trekking tours and an aquacultural farm.
