CUA LO
the beach

"Our hotel was in Vinh, a nice quiet place where there were almost no tourists. the weather was nice so it was just fine walking around a bit and stretching legs after such a long day. We also talked to a few students who wanted to improve their English."


View at Vinh

          Cua Lo Beach -  one of the most beautiful beaches in the north of Vietnam. It is just 18 km away from the centre of the city of Vinh. Cua Lo Beach acts as a magnet for almost all domestic tourists from the north and centre of the country.
This 10 kilometre long beach is famous for its white sand and blue water. Its situated at the edge of a beautiful pine forest and it's fringed with coconut palms. The beach slopes gently and there is no big waves. This makes this beach a favourite resort for families with children.

On the beach you will find few tourists, though Cua Lo has the potential of an excellent resort. Cua Lo has been changed slowly from a sleepy town to a town where more and more hotels are being built. This all because the attraction if the beautiful beach. There are more and more development of tourist activities, because there is a growing demand of tourists. In Vinh you can easily rent a bicycle and bike along the beach or the harbour.

Cua Lo is also known for the surrounding islands. They are not far from the coast and there are three beautiful islands close to the beach: Hon Ngu, Hon Chu and Hon Mat. To the north lies Lan Chau Island and the southeast lies Song Ngu island. These islands are not only beautiful, but they also serve as the shield to the beach of Cua Lo and they protect the mainland against storms and strong ocean winds. Tourists can easily get to these islands. In minutes, you can rent a boat, which brings to these islands.
In the restaurants at the Cua Lo beach you can enjoy seafood such as shrimp, crabs and squid. These dishes are served for a very reasonable price. You don't see many (foreign) tourism in Vinh.

 

One of the most interesting activities which you can do at the beach is to go fishing with local fishermen at night. They sail with you about 50 to 100 meters from the coastline in their basket boats to go fishing. In the morning on the way back to the beach you can view all your loot.

Vinh is a place with potential. The dreamy little town has become a place where activities are held and organized. Ask for it at the front desk of your hotel.
At Cua Lo is enough room for many people and it is not fully built with hotels! Take a pleasant walk along the beach and visit one of the sea food restaurant for lunch or dinner. You'll find plenty of your choise along the beach.
