There are two ways to reach Om Beach, by land and by waterway. For the first way, from the center of Tuy Hoa city, National Highway 1A leads to Song Cau Town. From there, ask a local the way to Vung La, a fishing village in Xuan Phuong commune.
By waterway, boats can be hired from local fishermen in Song Cau town or Nhat Tu Son town. The boat ride is about 90 minutes and should cost VND100,000 per hour for a four-seat boat and about VND1 million for a bigger one.
Drifting on the bay and indulging in the primitive surroundings is an amazing experience. Heading to the bay, tourists can learn about shrimp farming as this is home to many shrimp farms.
After riding the open ocean for around 90 minutes, the boat reaches the mouth of the bay where Om Beach lies gently waiting for tourists’ curiosity. Om Beach is actually two beaches separated by an isthmus. The front beach boasts soft sand and the back beach two hills.
There are no houses, residents or tourist services here, just the deserted beaches with their lines of coconut trees standing alone and listening to the waves crash onto the shore and the colorful coral forests that stop just below the surface of the ocean.
Snorkeling through the coral reef with the fish and basking in the tropical sun in this primitive landscape makes for unforgettable memories.
