The most attractive tourist attractions on the island of Binh Ba that you should not overlook are three beautiful beaches.

Bai Chuong beach: Among these three beaches, Bai Nom beach (Bãi Nồm) is the most crowded beach because it is very clean and clear. The beach is quite deep, beautiful but has big waves. Few visitors come here because there are many coral dying that flows to the seashore, and the distance from here to the living area of local people is rather far (about 15 minutes of walking on foot). However, this is the earliest dawn-getting place on the island. You can go camping here to get up and enjoy the dawn.

There is a beach which is about 300 m away from the local market. This beach has white sand, blue water, many rocks, and is surrounded by cliffs and trees, thereby creating a poetic scene. This is the best place in Binh Ba Island for you to swim and watch the coral.

Besides, people often go to Bai Chuong beach (Bãi Chướng) to see the sunrise and contemplate coral reefs. Hon Co Island is beautiful but far away, so few people know it.
