The beach of Ky Co
" This came as a surprise to us since we did not really expect much of the beach when we look it up on our maps.
Be careful thou since they will charge you with the wet napkins they put on your table!
It will be a bit hard to get here thou if you take public transport. Best option is to have your own motorbike and drive here by yourself."
The Bay at the background
Ky Co - is a hidden paradise close to Quy Nhon. The beautiful Ky Co beach has an unspoiled beauty of white sand, brilliant sunshine and a clear blue sea. The beach is "hot" by the Vietnamese people and to them this is a pristine and remote beach. Foreign tourists you will not find here. The city of Quy Nhon is 25 kilometers away from this paradise beach. The beach is surrounded by three mountains.
Ky Co is a bay in the shape of a crescent moon, with (as seen from the sea) at the right a small enclosed paradise, where you can walk to as you wade through the water.
You can take a taxi from Quy Nhon, across the bridge Suoi Ca followed by a winding road, which takes you to the other side of the mountain. The trip by taxi takes about 30 minutes.
If you do it by bike, it is a climb but the descent on the other side is delicious and you can enjoy a beautiful sea view.
Once descended and arrived at the bay, there are two paths that lead you to the paradise beach. At the beach you can rent boats to paddle a little on the sea. Today it is a popular destination for Vietnamese tourists. They call it a "piece of Maldives in Vietnam".
The first thing you do is renting a parasol, but can enjoy the sun, or swimming in the sea and playing in the cool waves. In the meantime, local people can prepare for you a festive meal of fresh fish on the beach. All for a very reasonable price and a great experience. The beach slopes gradually, gently, and therefore it's safe for little children.
You should definitely taste the rustic cuisine, including grilled snails, grilled abalone, crab, steamed squid, oysters, grilled onions ...
At the Ky Co beach are also some caves where usually cliff swallows (salangaans) are nestling (birds nest soup).
See the special Salangaan page.
