CUA DAI– BIG BEACH





Most days we cycled the 4 km to Cua Dai. The name literally means the 'big sea mouth' situated north-east of Hoi An.

Cua Dai is blessed with fine white sand. Its clear and blue waters stretch all the way to Da Nang some 30 km away.


Families, Russians and other Europeans gather here for R and R. Locals come for recreation later in the afternoon after work or school. Everyone enjoys the seafood specialities, which we saw these being prepared by a legion of kitchen ladies out at the back of each restaurant and boys who ensure the tanks to crabs and huge lobsters are topped up with water.




FOOT NOTE

This was part of a wonderful two-week stay in Vietnam in July, we were based in Hoi An, half way up the countries long and exciting coast, about 1000 km north of Ho Chi Min City (Saigon).
