Thinh Long Beach
Thing Long is a new beach in Hai Hau, Nam Dinh that has only recently become famous.
The 3 km long beach with soft sands and casuarina forest creates a sparkling blue ocean scene.
An unspoiled beach
The scenery in Thinh Long is unmatched by other beaches on the North coast of Vietnam, because of its unspoiled beauty and clean waters. Thinh Long is fortunate in that it is not affected by the notorious hot winds from Laos, so the weather is cooler with a light but pleasant breeze, easing the heat. There are also some big but gentle waves, making Thinh Long a great spot for beginners to windsurfing. If you are more active than just sunbathing, you can also rent a canoe to go around the coast and explore the rocky islands off the coast. There are professional fishing villages at each end of the beach ready to greet you and show you their way of life. Do not forget to taste the special dishes here because the seafood here is extremely diverse, both delicious and fresh!
