Once taking a sightseeing tour to the central cities of Hue and Danang, beach lovers should not miss a chance to drop by Lang Co Beach, an attractive tourist destination renowned for wonderful landscapes, long white-sand dunes and blue seawater.
Located in Phu Loc District, Thua Thien-Hue Province, Lang Co Beach is some 30 kilometers from Danang and 70 kilometers from Hue.
Seen from Hai Van Pass, the 10-kilometer-long beach looks like a painting of beautiful pristine nature surrounded by mountains, tropical jungles and crystal blue water and a harmonious combination of nature and life that wait to be discovered.
The impression of Lang Co on travelers must be the picturesque sea view and the quiet and tranquil ambiance. Lang Co Beach is touted as a must-visit destination for those wishing to get rid of their worries and burdens and escape the sultry atmosphere and stuffy city life.
What makes the beach more convenient for local and international travelers to visit is its close proximity to three of Vietnam’s World Heritage sites – the ancient citadel of Hue, the ancient town of Hoi An, and My Son sanctuary.
Not far from the beach, visitors can take a leisure walk around Lang Co fishing village to witness daily coastal life of local fishermen full of hardship and danger. Once touring to Lang Co, visitors are also advised to try various kinds of seafood such as shrimp, lobster, crab, butter-fish, mackerel fish and oysters.
Lang Co was recognized as one of the world’s 30 most beautiful bays in 2009 by the Club of the World’s Best Bays (Worldbays).
