TOP 5 BEACHES IN THE NORTH VIETNAM





With more than 3400km of coastline Vietnam is blessed with idyllic and beautiful beaches which are popular for both domestic and foreign tourists. Today, Vietwind travel would like to introduce you the top 5 most attractive beaches in the North of Vietnam.


1. Tra Co beaches- the most poetic beach in North vietnam


Tra Co Beach 

Tra co beach is widely known as the first beach on the country map, the longest beach (17km) in the country, and Vietnam’s most pristine and romantic beach in Northern Vietnam with deep blue sea the year around and smooth white sand. The beach is shaded by a range of casuarinas, protecting the village from the wind and the sand. It is neighbored to an original eco-system of mangrove forest is the zone lung. Known as one of the most beautiful beach in Vietnam, Tra Co is occasionally put in comparison with Nha Trang beach. Accordingly, if Nha Trang is as beautiful as a modern girl, Tra Co is a coyly rural girl since it has not yet been much exploited for tourism. Tra Co beach is relatively unspoiled and unpolluted as well as not being too rapidly urbanized. The coastline here is long, wide with big waves, and romantic sunsets.

If you would like to enjoy fresh seafood, Tra Co fishermen can surely meet your requirement. The fresh sea foods are always available on the seaside after fishing time. For those who are interested in local historical vestiges, Tra Co communal house, and the pride of Tra Co people since it was built long time ago in 1462, should also be a stop-over, if time is available

Going north for about one kilometer from the beach, you will reach Tra Co Church, which was first built in 1880 and rebuilt by the French in 1914.

The church was restored in 1995 to make it look like it did 100 years ago. Inside the church is a giant bell and hundreds of beautiful sculptures.
