Situated in Nghe AN province. Cua Lo Beach is among the most beautiful beaches in the northern region of Vietnam. Just 18km away from the center of Vinh city, Cua Lo Beach is the magnet for almost all domestic tourists from both north and center of the country.

Hiring local fishermen’s boats to go to the sea in the early morning is an interesting experience that you should not miss.
Nguyễn Thị Tâm, a tourist from Hanoi, said, “This is my first time in Cửa Lò and Vinh. The beach is crowded, even during the early days of summer vacation. The sea is clean and local people are hospitable.”
The Cửa Lò Township was set up in 1994 and recognized as a marine tourism urban area by the Prime Minister in 2014. The locality has upgraded its infrastructure, recreation centers, and hotels.
