Bai Chay, the great artificial beach

Published:  15:11 Tuesday - December 20, 2011 The 100-meter-wide-sandy beach spans over 500 m. Early in the morning or in late afternoon, thousands of people liven up the atmosphere here.


 Bai Chay is a large, beautiful, artificial beach, near the coast of Ha Long Bay. It's a attraction of Quang Ninh Province.

With its name, the visitors may mistakenly think that this is due to the dry climate or lack of wind in this area. The sand on this stretch of beach is also dark. However, contrary to this interpretation, the area is quite pleasant during the summer and fall months and the temperature here is around 20 - 22 C.

According to the locals, Bai Chay got its name long ago. According to one legend, when the fleet carrying food for the Yuan-Mongolian invaders led by Truong Van Ho came there, the Vietnamese troops and locals under the leadership of Tran Khanh Du set fire to it. The whole fleet was engulfed in fire. Meanwhile, the northeast wind blew hard and further added fuel to it. Fire was so fierce it burned down the forest in the western side of Cua Luc. Hence the name Bai Chay.

 

Another legend has it that the western side of Cua Luc used to be a wharf for seagoing boats. Acorn-barnacles firmly attached to these boats’ sides and underneath, and might wreck the boats. The local population had to use casuarinas leaves to burn acorn-barnacles. From Hon Gai and other neighboring places, people always see a blaze from there, so they called it Bai Chay.

It comprises restaurants, water puppet and traditional music theatres, Hoang Gia Park, water-skiing, and sea motorcycling.

Traveling down the asphalt road along the coast, visitors see long white stretches of sand and green rows of  luxuriant casuarinas, tucked under which are small family-run restaurants. After swimming at the beach, visitors Vietnam travel can enjoy cold drinks and cool off in the breeze that sweeps in from the sea.
