Tien Trang beach – A pristine beach of Thanh Hoa


Tien Trang Beach is a pristine beach located in Quang Loi town, Quang Xuong district, Thanh Hoa Province. Traveling here will be an interesting and exciting experience for you!

This small, beautiful beach has not been widely known yet. I have just discovered it by chance. There are no signs of tourism here. The locals are the ones who know about the beach. Although this beach is not as blue as other beaches in the North of Vietnam due to the alluvium, the water is still clear enough. You can also have the chance to catch crabs on the sandy beach.

Peace and pristine Tien Trang Beach

If you like the strong waves, such as in Sam Son Beach, then, Tien Trang Beach is not for you. The waves on this beach are very gentle, which is perfect for those who want to relax. From 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM, you can see many schools of fishes swimming as well as the beauty of sunshine on the beach. It is a pity because I did not take a photo of the fishes.

There are parking places here. The fee is 15.000 VND (ABOUT 0.6 USD) for a car and free for the motorbike. If you want to stay here for a few days, you should travel to the city center, which is about 7 or 8 kilometers from Tien Trang beach because there are many hotel options for you there. There isn’t any hotel or hostel near this beach.

If you want to eat some seafood, then this place is a heaven for you. Let's begin your exciting morning by going for a walk along the beach to watch the sunrise and buying some seafood. However, there are not any restaurants here, which accept to process the seafood you bought. Therefore, just buy the seafood if you have enough kitchen utensils to prepare your meals. On the other hand, the foods served by nearby restaurants are worth your trying, thanks to the delicious food and reasonable price.

There are some tourism services such as hiring buoy. There are also some coffee shops and food stalls along the beach. If you are lucky enough, you can see the whole beach covered in the colorful pinwheels. However, I am still not sure which days you can see this. You will certainly want to come back to this beach again when seeing its beauty in this day.

How to travel to Tien Trang Beach

The simplest way is to travel by bus to Quang Loi town and then call for a motor-taxi to take you there. You can totally travel by your motorbike or car. It only takes about 3 or 4 hours for you to travel to this beach from Ha Noi.

You can easily see a short man with the beard, who is the host of this beach. He is very friendly; if you have any trouble, just ask him.
