Lang Co Beach is known for having one of the most beautiful natural coastal landscapes in Vietnam. It is situated more than 25 km north of Da Nang city, and more than 60 km south from Hue. This makes Lang Co Beach the perfect stop if you are travelling between these two cities, just at the foot of the famous Hai Van pass.

Things to do and see

Lang Co beach

Lang Co has a very beautiful and long stretch beach, in an arc shape, with mountains in the background of Bac Ma National Park. The 10 kilometer long beach looks very inviting, with its fine yellow and white sand. On the beach you can relax or rent a boat to go around, including a trip to Son Cha Island, just of the coast. For the best stretch of beach, stay at the Lang Co Beach Resort. They keep the stretch of beach very clean and you can use their lounge chairs. An evening stroll along the beach will take you to a number of excellent seafood restaurants.


Fishing village

Lang Co beach is part of Lang Co town. This town is more like a small fishing village. On the beach you will see the basket boats that the fisherman use to peddle to the fishing boats just lying anchor of the coast. There is a local market in the middle of the village, that is mainly used to sell fresh seafood. Also in the fishing village you find mostly seafood restaurants.

Lap An lagoon

Also known as An Cu Lagoon, located on National Highway 1A, is a quite beautiful lake, with turquoise water. It is surrounded by the impressive Bach Ma mountain range. This lagoon is the most beautiful during sunsets.

Hai Van Pass

The Hai Van Pass is probably the most famous mountain pass of Vietnam. This mountain pass connects Da Nang/Hoi An with Hue, via a stunning coastal road. Top Gear named it one of the best coastal roads in the world. The route can be done by motorbike (self driving), an easy rider (on the back of a motorbike of a Vietnamese guide) or by jeep/car.

Elephant Spring

If the waves at Lang Co beach are too big, or you prefer a nice fresh water pool to cool of, then a dip in the Elephant Spring is recommended. Here you find a couple of small waterfalls and natural pools, with rocks where you can jump off.

Bach Ma National Park

About 30 km to the west from Lang Co is Bach Ma National Park, known for its cool climate. Here, you can do trekking to enjoy the atmosphere of the mountain forests, visiting waterfalls and conquering Bach Ma peak.

How to get there
