About 15km from Hue city center, Hai Duong beach belongs to Huong Tra town of Thua Thien Hue province, passing Tam Giang bridge and 2 Thai Duong villages. This is one of the beaches in Hue that has not been altered for tourism development, so it still retains the inherent wild beauty and is extremely peaceful. Between the immense sea, you will be free to swim and admire the breathtaking scenery, without having to jostle like other places. In particular, there are also 2 super unique check-in locations named high shore and low shore, which were created by people to stop waves.

The low shore consists of solid screw-shaped breakwater, while the high beach is made of super-large 3-foot stone slabs looking like a star, that are randomly overlapped creating a unique landscape to this pristine Hue beach. To reach the high rocky shore, you need to go through a green pine forest on a quite bumpy road, but it is an opportunity for you to challenge yourself and experience many interesting things. Walking along the coast, you will also encounter a lighthouse covered with green moss, standing like a majestic javelin pointing straight up to the sky.

In addition to historical works and ecotourism sites, the beaches in Hue are the most worth-visiting resort this summer.
