Vinh Hy Bay is located in Bac Son Commune, Thuan Bac District, about 42km northeast of Phan Rang Thap Cham City, Ninh Thuan province.
Surrounded by ocean, forests and mountains, Vinh Hy Bay is one of the most beautiful bays in Vietnam. The bay has preserved its natural beauty with white sand beaches circling steep rocky mountains and streams babbling in extensive green forests. The bay is very calm, with clear blue water, and in some places, the bay’s bed can be seen.
The bay is part of the Nui Chua National Park, which peaks at 1,000 meters above sea level and is considered one of the most unique dry forest ecosystem in Southeast Asia. It has 11 species of turtles, both terrestrial and marine and several of the beaches constitute the last remaining nesting sites in mainland Vietnam for small numbers of endangered Green Turtles and other marine turtles.
Vinh Hy Bay has the most beautiful coral reefs in Vietnam, according to a survey by the United Nations environment program. Tay Sa and Tai islets are the best places to catch a glimpse of the coral reefs.
Visitors to Vinh Hy should take the opportunity to tour the bay on a glass-bottom boat to admire the beauty above and under the water. The glass bottom affords travelers a peek at hundreds of coral species and stunning schools of colorful sea fish.
Bathing in the sea, enjoying the pure white sand beaches, exploring nearby caves nestled in the towering rocks all make for an unspoiled tourist haven. And we haven’t even mentioned the local seafood, freshly caught by the villagers who set out early in the morning in colorful convoys dotting the bay.
There are various choices for overnight stays in the bay, ranging from the luxurious Amanoi resort, surrounded by forests and mountains, to homestays in stilt houses in the fishing village. Singing, dancing and drinking ruou can (wine drunk out of a jar through pipes) with the Raglai people living around the bay is an unforgettable choice of evening entertainment.
