Queen Beach Quy Nhon Vietnam: A Beautiful Gem

Queen Beach, often known as Egg Beach, is one of the most beautiful beaches in Quy Nhon, Vietnam. In this guide, I’ll share useful information about the beach and tips to make the best of your trip.

So, why is Queen Beach famous?

Have you ever seen a beach that’s filled with egg-shaped stones instead of sand? Sounds a bit strange, doesn’t it? But yes, that’s precisely what makes Queen Beach, or the Stone Egg Beach (Bai Trung) as Vietnamese call, a unique spot that stands out in the picturesque city of Quy Nhon.

The first time I set foot on Queen Beach, I was amazed by the sight of countless smooth stones, each resembling a giant egg, stretching across hundreds of square meters.

The story of Queen Beach

The legend says that in the Nguyen Dynasty, when King Bao Dai and Nam Phuong Queen visited the central provinces, the beauty of this beach caught the Queen’s eye.

Queen Nam Phuong then chose a perfect destination for a private holiday with King Bao Dai in 1927. 

Bao Dai is the last king of the Nguyen Dynasty, the final ruling family of Vietnam. His reign was from 1926-1945, and he abdicated in August 1945 when Japan surrendered.

This coastal beauty nestles within the Ghenh Rang tourism area, just a stone’s throw away (approximately 2km) from the bustling city of Quy Nhon.The close proximity to the city’s hustle and bustle, yet the calm tranquillity this beach offers, never ceases to amaze me.
