A very special thing and the characteristic of Tan Thanh beach is that instead of the yellow sandy beach. But the sand here is black constantly. If you go early in the morning when the tide falls, you can take a walk.

When it turns into the sun until midday, you no longer see this black beach. Because the tide is rising, the waves rush to the shore. You can buy seafood near by the beach, there are many seafood sold by the people here, which are quite cheap.
