Ghenh Rang

Ghenh Rang is one of the most attractive destinations in Binh Dinh, located 3km south east of Quy Nhon City. It has magnificent natural scenery with mountains, forests, beaches and islands that can’t be seen in such a combination anywhere else. At the south west are high mountains that reach the ocean, and from these mounts you can survey great distances of natural beauty: the Lion’s Head rock that leaps to reach the sea; the silent Waiting Statue; the Lying Elephant and Bear rocks that guard the beaches, and Chong Islet which seems to be light, but is stable in the heavy storms.

On the north east of Ghenh Rang is a blue ocean that covers the white sandbanks with cool water and a stunning view. This is one of the most beautiful beaches in Binh Dinh, and has greeted bathers in search of relaxation for many years. In 1927, Bao Dai, the last king of Vietnam, built a villa where his family could come and relax.  He reserved the whole beach for just Queen Nam Phuong, his most beloved wife. It is because of this that the beach is now called Queen Beach.  From the view on the top of the mountain, the beach looks like a large turquoise field filled with jade and granite eggs. And so, apart from “Queen’s Beach”, the local people also call it “Egg Stone” beach.
