Tra Co beach has just been officially recognized as the longest beach in Vietnam by the Vietnam Record Organization due to its length of 17 km, its area of ‚Äč‚Äčabout 170ha, curved annular, stretching from Got cape in the north to Ngoc cape in the south. Besides, Tra Co beach is also the first beach appeared on the nation map, closest to the country border, with the most many travel places, most pristine, most romantic..
Located in the farthest northeast of the country, 9 km of road away from Mong Cai city center, Tra Co is the edge of an island formed by the effect of waves and costal currents. The beach has sand dunes of 3-4m high, has the hamlets and villages with crowded inhabitants who are living chiefly by agriculture and fishing. Close to the sea are the strips of casuarina forest to obstruct the wind, give the shade and keep the sand, next to the mangroves ecosystems.
If Nha Trang beach is compared to the modern girl, Tra Co must be a countryside young woman. Visitors come to this beach will be deeply impressed with a long long fine white sandy shore and as gentle as a girl's elongated smooth legs and her silky hair streams, very wild and sweet. Tra Co is beautiful, a rustic beauty, no scrambling because it has not been a "commercial beach", not too many restaurants, not losing the inherent beauty of the sea.
In the experiences of a blogger who used to be "immersed" into the smell of Tra Co beach, once you be here, choose a desolate seat to set your soul free into whispering waves, to feel the sea and yourself embedded into each other. Moreover, Tra Co has also a place with very romantic sunrise and sunset called Con Mang, about 6 km from the beach. The sand of Con Mang is so steady and fine that it's possible to drive motorcycle without fear of subsidence nor slip. Iif you want to enjoy fresh seafood, you can purchase right on the coast when fishermen fishing boats come back.
Currently, the road to Tra Co beach has a dike system and the new extension which is very convenient to go. You can reach to Tra Co by sea or by land. If traveling by sea, guests can choose boats or hydrofoils from Bai Chay, Quang Ninh (about 132km) or from Hai Phong (about 206 km). If traveling by road, it is quite winding but with very interesting sceneries.
