Located about 20 kilometers from Quy Nhon to the Southeast, Ky Co beach attracts many visitors for its wilderness and the blue sea bordering two sides of the mountain. Coming here, you will be amazed by the breathtaking natural scenery, and a painting made with the high cliffs, white sandy beaches lying under the deep blue sea.

The crystal clear blue water and fine white sand beaches of Ky Co are attractive spots for many young people and families who are looking for a getaway from the stress of daily life. Even if you visit here in the summertime, the weather is so cool that you will not feel the heat at all.
Besides, the beach has many stone slabs that are connected together to create sinkholes. When the tide is high, water will overflow into these rock crevices, forming a beautiful natural pool. Since the water is crystal clear, it allows you to see the bottom, and create a chance for beautiful photography.
For adventurous people who enjoy some challenges, they can climb up the stone slabs to have a majestic panoramic view of Ky Co beach and the vast sea from a distance. This is also one of the most important parts that will help your “check-in” Instagram photos get hundreds of likes. However, tourists are advised to approach these activities carefully and wear types of equipment to ensure they do not hurt themselves.
In the early morning, when the sun is slowly rising, the rays of sunshine begins to light up the land and its reflection on the surface of the water makes a dreamy sight. Nothing is more perfect than sitting on the balcony and sipping on a hot cup of coffee as you watch the sunrise, and listen to the rhythm of waves caressing the sandy bank. At that moment, all the stresses slowly dissipate, and you can feel the peacefulness in your heart.

Tourists can also get a chance to take beautiful pictures with the coral reefs, or go fishing by hiding a boat or canoe. They can follow the fishermen to the sea to understand more about the lives of local people as well as their daily work.
There is a long wooden bridge in the middle of the beach, from which people used to jump. Now, however, only photography is allowed here. Near the end of the day, the wind gets stronger and the waves louder on Ky Co.

The area is still quite pristine, so there are not many hotels or resorts. The nearest is FLC Quy Nhon Resort. If you want to explore the area, I would recommend staying in the town, which has plenty of food and entertainment options. Going to Ky Co normally takes half a day, so people usually go on a day tour to Ky Co – Eo Gio then returns to the town. On Agoda.com or Booking.com, hotel prices normally range from VND300,000 (US$13.07) to 500,000 (US$21.78) per night. If you really want to stay overnight on Ky Co Island, bring along a tent, tarpaulin, food, and drink.

In Ky Co Beach, travel services are developing and tourists will have chances to enjoy the specific tasty dishes in Ky Co Beach such as grilled abalone, grilled snails, steamed squid, steamed crab, grilled sea urchin with cooking oil and garlic, etc. The seafood is simple and fresh but has a unique taste.
The best time to visit Quy Nhon is from February to August. This is the time when the weather is clear, comfortable with no rain, which creates your chances to visit and explore the whole land, and Ky Co beach.
