4. Lang Van Beach

Lang Van Beach is the wildest beach in Da Nang City. For us, this beach is worth listing as the most pristine and beautiful beaches in Vietnam. Lang Van Beach has fine white sand, very clean and green water, and charming landscape of the mountains and village (Lang Van village).

However, not many visitors come here for swimming and relaxing. The main reason is that the ways to this beach are complicated. The guests have to hire a boat from Nam O village to come there. But, we can see many beautiful photos of Lang Van beach, because a lot of tourists take its pictures from Hai Van Pass (ocean-cloud pass).

We can now locate this beach right at the foot of Hai Van pass, north of Da Nang City, taking 15 – 20 minutes by boat from Nam O beach. Lang Van Beach seems separated from city life. Actually, this place was a leprosy village. The old people here used to be suffered leprosy. Year by year, their children goes to the city center to live. The village, therefore, has a few families living here.

Lang Van Beach is suitable for explorers who love to explore and experience wild destinations. Watching the sunset, dropping your soul into the space of heaven and earth, breathing the sea breeze here makes visitors feel comfortable and peaceful after the stress of busy days.

An enjoyable camping night here will be an unforgettable memory, which is the top activity to come here. If you are a real explorer, you should come there before Lang Van beach becomes a private resort area.

5. Xuan Thieu Beach

Xuan Thieu beach is located in Hoa Hiep Ward, Lien Chieu District, Da Nang City, the beginning of Nguyen Tat Thanh Street. Xuan Thieu beach is also known as “Red Beach,” which makes visitors come here curious about this name.

There are two stories to tell about the “Red Sea.” The first is that when coming here for the first time, the US military saw the seawater with red color during the rainy season. This was caused by the red silt flowing from the mountains following the Nam O River, making this area of the sea red, so Red Beach or the Red Sea was named for this beach (because US soldiers did not the local name of the beach).

Another story told that many visitors saw it become red color when the sunset and sunrise. Thus, they called it the “Red Sea.” For anyways, we are inclined to the first explanation.

When coming to Xuan Thieu Beach, tourists will see an eco-tourism resort of Xuan Thieu. They can choose to taste seafood food, go swimming, and spend overnight at this place.

Xuan Thieu Beach owned the famous history in 1965 when the US Military landed to Da Nang city.

The US chose Da Nang to land because this is a strategic military position, quickly separating the two South-Northth regions; at the same time, taking advantage of the deep-water port, and shortened a certain distance to the North of Vietnam to build military bases to attack the North by air and navy. In Da Nang, US troops occupied Da Nang airport and the Northwest region (Hoa Vang district), built field camps.

American soldiers deployed to occupy Hai Van pass, Phuoc Tuong Mountain. And, they built bunkers and artillery fields, installed modern radar system on Son Tra peninsula to control the airspace. Da Nang airport and the two other helipads of Nuoc Mam and Xuan Thieu had been quickly built. The US set up Gia Long police station, the town hall, the military, the consulate house in Da Nang … The defense system inside the city was taken over by the Republic of Vietnam army, the US military was outside.”
