Da Nhay Beach

Da Nhay Beach is a sculptural masterpiece of nature, resting its head on Ly Hoa Pass reaching out to the sea. Therefore, it creates a charming yet equally majestic feng shui picture. Let’s explore the beauty of Da Nhay beach with Origin Vietnam in the article below.

1. Where is Da Nhay beach?

The Da Nhay beach is located right on National Highway 1A on Thien Ly North-South road, bordering Thach Trach and Hai Trach communes. Belongs to Bo Trach district, Quang Binh province, Vietnam. About 28 km north of Dong Hoi city and about 475 km south of Hanoi capital.

2. How is Da Nhay beach unique?

The origin of the name Da Nhay beach comes from the abrasion of ocean waves. Large, seemingly inanimate stone blocks become alive with all kinds of different shapes. Thanks to the ingenuity of mother nature, Quang Binh has created an extremely special tourist destination.

At Da Nhay beach, there are many rocks and boulders scattered on the road stretching over 1km. Miraculous nature is the author of stone slabs of all kinds of strange shapes. From that, you can easily associate those rocks with images of a lying buffalo, a giant toad, a kneeling tiger or an elephant serving…

The unique beauty of the rocky mountains eroded by sea water is the attraction that makes you come to explore. Moreover, this place was also an important military position during the war under the Le Dynasty.

3. When is the best time to visit Da Nhay beach?

From April to September every year is the ideal time to explore the most beautiful Da Nhay beach in Central Vietnam. Besides, this is also the dry season, the climate is not too hot or rainy. Thanks to that, we will enjoy the most complete natural scenery, with sweet golden sunlight like honey and a blue sea that is not too rough.

In addition, if you are a photography enthusiast, you should not miss the two most beautiful times of the day: sunrise and sunset. This natural “backdrop” is the perfect material to create excellent photos.

4. How to get to Da Nhay beach?

This attraction is located about 26 km north of Dong Hoi. The road to get here is considered wide, airy, and easy to travel. Depending on your personal needs and preferences, you can travel by car or motorbike to the jumping rock site. Some commonly chosen routes are:

  • Starting from Dong Hoi city center, you move along Phan Huy Chu street towards Dong Hoi airport. From here, you continue straight along National Highway 1A for about 20 km to arrive.
  • From Dong Hoi city, you go straight along Le Thanh Tong street, to the intersection with National Highway 1A. Then you go straight for about 30 – 45 minutes to arrive to Da Nhay beach.

5. Exploring the beauty of Da Nhay beach

5.1 Rocks of all shapes and sizes are embellished by nature

Da Nhay beach is one of the two most beautiful beaches in Quang Binh, possessing an irresistible romantic scene. Large rocks with unique shapes sculpted by nature are a special feature that attracts visitors here. In addition, when visiting Da Nhay beach, we also have the opportunity to admire all the different shades of rock blocks that fluctuate with the rising and falling tides.

Stone slabs of all sizes are scattered randomly, but if you look closely you will see that everything is arranged neatly and harmoniously, but not mixed together. Especially, looking down from the top of the mountain, we can see the rocky beach as a very uniquely created natural picture. Furthermore, because the rise and fall of the tides are different in each season or time of day, the stone also has very subtle color changes.

5.2 Mysterious ancient well in the heart of Da Nhay beach

In the midst of that unique population, a mysterious well emerged that the locals named Coc well. Because the well’s mouth was covered with a large rock shaped like a toad. Located right in the toad cave area, when indigenous people need to get water, they will have to go deep inside to scoop each bowl and each bucket.

In particularly, the well water here is extremely clear and sweet, it is warm in winter and cool in summer. So fishermen often take it to worship the nearby Nam Hai Dai Vuong temple.

5.3 Diversity of marine life

In addition, the beauty of Da Nhay beach in Quang Binh is the pristine sea with many underground coral reefs. This is the area where seafood species such as fish, shrimp, crabs, crabs, etc. live. If you are lucky enough to meet a fisherman on his way to collect nets, you can ask to buy them and prepare them into attractive specialties.

Currently, the sand and sea around Da Nhay beach are still quite wild. The smooth, flat white sand under our feet and the cool whispering wind easily make us feel like our souls are also vibrating with the beauty of nature.

  • Underwater activities: The beach here is both wide and clear, with cool water to help us experience all kinds of entertainment. Such as boating, swimming, etc.
  • Exploring the poplar forest area near Da Nhay beach: Running along the beach is a poplar forest stretching far away. If you don’t like the hot, sweltering air under the sun, remember to stop walking.
  • Camping at night: In the Da Nhay beach area, there are many services being developed such as local cuisine, tent rental,… served right next to the beach. Thanks to that, we can organize team building activities, camping, singing… here to create many beautiful memories.

7. Specialties when traveling to Da Nhay beach

Around Da Nhay beach, there are many restaurants and eateries specializing in selling specialties as well as fresh seafood. Some typical dishes that we should try:

  • Quang Binh filter cake: Has its own way of processing with soft, hot dough and rich shrimp and meat flavor.
  • Porridge soup: Porridge soup is made from simple ingredients including noodles, lean meat and snakehead fish but the flavor is extremely impressive.
