8 Best Things To Do In Quy Nhon Vietnam
Located in Binh Dinh province, Quy Nhon is a quiet and peaceful city with a harmonious combination between mountains and the sea.
The name Quy Nhon evokes unspoiled experience as the landscape has not been much exploited in tourism. The simple and seductive life here is entirely enough to conquer anyone who has once stopped.
In this article, I share the best things to do in Quy Nhon and travel tips to make the most of your trip.
Have a relaxing day at Ky Co
If you ask the locals which is the most beautiful place in Quy Nhon, surely they will not hesitate to answer that it is Ky Co beach.
Ky Co beach is about 30 minutes from the city. The beach is clean, sandy, and has a pristine beauty.
Be amazed at Eo Gio
Eo Gio is a must-visit destination on your trip to Quy Nhon.
Eo Gio is located about 15 minutes from Ky Co beach, and the scenery is breathtaking.
We love the feeling of walking along the trails, relaxing, and enjoying the taste of the sea breeze.
Enjoy the view at Queen Beach
Queen Beach or Egg Beach is a famous beach in Quy Nhon with many small stones like eggs, looking very special.
The place gained its name because it’s used to be a bathing area reserved for Nam Phuong Hoang Hau during her lifetime.
The area has beautiful curving sea lanes, clear blue seawater, and countless oval stones stacked on top like eye-catching eggs.
Although it’s a beach, it is difficult to bathe here because the whole area is full of rocks. However, the view is beautiful and pleasant, so watching a sunrise or sunset here would be ideal.
There is a nearby restaurant with a view of Quy Nhon city. We stopped here for brunch, and it was good. The price was affordable, and they offered a good portion.
Relax on Quy Nhon beach
Quy Nhon beach is the highlight of the city. We love walking along the park and enjoying the view of the beautiful sandy coastline.
Our favorite spot in Quy Nhon is Surf Bar, a cafe situated on the sandy beach.
Walking barefoot on the sand, playing with the waves, and relaxing with a cocktail as a bar were our favorite activities.
Stay at Life’s a beach
If you’re looking for a more isolated beach, head to Life’s a beach on Bai Xep beach.
Life’s a beach is a homestay located in the fishing village of Bai Xep, Quy Nhon.
Not luxurious like other resorts, but this homestay is always the first choice of everyone when coming here. By being close to nature, you also get a taste of local life.
Visit the Twin Tower (Thap Doi)
Located right on Tran Hung Dao street, in the center of Quy Nhon city, the Twin Cham tower is a must-visit on your trip to Quy Nhon.
The twin tower is a religious work of the Cham people built from the 10th to the 15th centuries. The complex has a unique structure, consisting of two buildings: the large tower is about 20 m high, the small tower is 18 m high, adjacent to each other.
Previously, this twin tower was severely destroyed. However, by 2008, it was restored to its original shape and architecture.
Tips: If you love photography, visit the Twin tower in the morning to avoid backlighting.
Quy Nhon is a beach city, so don’t leave this place without enjoying delicious seafood dishes.
There are plenty of small restaurants along Xuan Dieu street that you can stop by or visit a seafood street – Ngoc Han Cong Chua – and sample some of the finest dishes.
We stopped at Oc Hao Hao for one night and had some delicious oysters. Each oyster only cost 5,000 VND, and they were tasty!

It displays unique and rich collections of artifacts such as the Collection of prehistoric pottery of Sa Huynh, Han pottery, Canh Duc Tran pottery, Champa pottery, Ly – Tran pottery, and Binh Dinh pottery.
I would love to visit Vietnam. The beaches and water look so beautiful more so than many other places that are very well known for beaches. I’d also like to see the Twin Tower — thanks for the photography tip! Sometimes I’ve visited landmarks in the afternoon and the lighting was not good so it’s important to note that.
This is the first I have heard of Quy Nhon Vietnam. I love that there are mountains and beaches nearby. I would definitely spend time at Queen Beach sitting on those egg-shaped rocks daydreaming and sipping cocktails at Life’s a Beach. I would love to try everything on seafood street, love the name!
I went to Vietnam a long time ago, and am yearning to go back. Quy Nhon looks wonderful, and with clearly many things to do here. I’d most like to see all the beaches, it’s making me want to leave behind cold Europe! The seafood looks incredible too!
I have visited East Asia quite a bit but not had the opportunity to visit Vietnam yet and really want to visit. I would definitely add this beautiful part to my list mainly Quy Nhon for the peaceful atmosphere you mention and the blend of mountains and the sea. Another aspect is the food which really attracts me to this part of the world. Queen beach would be on the trip for sure as well. Thanks for sharing.
Good to know that Quy Nhon is a quiet and peaceful city with a harmonious combination between mountains and the sea. Seeing the combination of both natural beauty at same place would be a perfect choice. I would definitely head to Quy Nhon beach as it is the highlight of the city. It would be great to have a walk along the sandy coastline.
I too loved your favorite spot – Surf Bar, as this cafe has a perfect location which is right on the sandy beach.
I love such a peaceful city, would love to visit Vietnam someday. Ky Co Beach looks so beautiful and nice to know that it is just 30 minutes away from the city. Food at Oc hao Hao looks delicious. Surf Bar looks like an amazing place to chill and enjoy
I have been to Vietnam a couple of times and love the country but I have never been to Quy nhon. And, you are right, the scenery at Eo Gio and Ky Co beach does look breath-taking. looks very serene and peaceful. Because I am a vegetarian I can’t enjoy the seafood here but would love to explore the place.
I was in Vietnam a couple of months ago but did not make it Quy Nhon, I was around Halong Bay, Hanoi and Hoi an areas. Ky Co beach looks gorgeous, I’d love to have visited that and the beachside cafe you’ve recommended looks exactly the sort of place I’d love to have breakfast at!
