III - Interesting things to do in Cua Dai beach Vietnam

This beach is impressive with its peaceful, poetic beauty with an endless smooth white sand stretching along the deep turquoise blue coastline with gentle silver waves patting the shore. The warm water and the all-year-round blowing wind facilitate such interesting activities as swimming, scuba diving, sunbathing,... This is probably one of the few special beaches in Vietnam with the lively changing color of the water from dark blue, deep blue to typical ocean blue in day. 

When night falls, you can stroll along the coast of Cua Dai Hoi An to feel the cool sea breeze, admire the twinkling sky and listen to the amazing sound of the waves.

For those who are looking for more interesting experiences, night squid fishing or fishing with the locals definitely are the top things to do. Calmly sitting on a small boat and waiting for the fish and squid to come is enough for a rich-in-experience nightlife in Hoi An

You can contact the Cua Dai - Cu Lao Cham fishing service agency to book a night squid fishing tour.
