In addition, it also has Minh Chau island commune – the island famous for pure wild character preservation. Coming here, young discoverers will have the chance to cycle through tree-shaded paths and walk on the smooth white beach stretching over 2km. Minh Chau is evaluated as one of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam.
In addition, you can also experience the feeling as a fisherman when going out to sea to fish for squid every night. Every morning waking up, you can go dig sipunculus nudus, then enjoy the dish from the fruits of your labour. Besides, Cai Bau, Ngoc Vung, Quan Lan are also famous for beautiful beaches, pristine forests with rare animals and rich spiritual life in many sacred pagodas.
