With a coastline of 6km from Lach Hoi Sea-mouth to the foot of Truong Le Mountain, Sam Son boasts lightly sloping beaches with big waves, which is very suitable for summer vacations.
Under the French domination, Sam Son was a famous vocational resort in the Indochina. Many years later, a series of resort villas were built there and Bao Dai, the last king of the Nguyen Dynasty, also ordered the construction of his residence in the area.
Sam Son Borough has a long and beautiful beach reaching more than 16km in length. The very flat and gentle sandbank, combined with the clean and blue water makes the scenery of Sam Son beach magnificent and attractive. Visitors will have some unforgettable moments when they wallow in the cool blue sea, listen to songs of the wave and the wind, and take a nap on the sunlight sandbanks or build sandcastles. Also, this is a good place to try various local seafood varieties such as shrimps, crabs, fishes, and also to bring back home some nice souvenirs.
Besides the beaches, Sam Son also has another fascinating destination with many natural attractions and historical relics: the Truong Le Mountain range. The part that is contiguous to the sea is called Co Giai Islet. On top of this islet, there is a small pagoda named “Doc Cuoc”, which means “One Leg”. The pagoda is the place for the local people to recall the epic legend of a giant that manages to slay a sea monster and to guard the sea in the past. Also, there is a special rock name “Trong Mai”, formed with two huge boulders on a flat rock. There is a story that these rocks represent a pair of husband and wife, who love each other passionately even when both have been transformed into birds.
