A wide crescent bay backed by dense tropical foliage, Vung Bau Beach is just south of Dai Beach. If going from Cua Can beach, It is located on the upper west coast just past the town of Cua Can and approximately 10kms from Duong Dong lies a beautiful half moon beach that is mostly uninhabited except for some local houses at the northern end and one restaurant catering to all visitors. If you’re looking for some adventure, there’s a dive shop along the main road that will take you to nearby islands for a small fee.
Calm blue water, white sand, and thick tall grass growing close to the shore make this a peaceful and private beach, so much so that many foreign visitors who make the trip here don’t feel the need to don swimwear. Bring a simple picnic and a good book, and find yourself a hideout among the grass to while away the day. If you get hungry there are a couple of large but makeshift seafood restaurants along the beach. Or if a day at Vung Bau Beach isn’t enough there are a few mid-range resorts here, including Bamboo Cottages ($35-60).
