When the first sun rays glisten upon town, Lo Dieu Beach appears impressive with green-moss rock banks as the tide ebbs in the early or middle of the month. The untouched beauty of the scenery calls for local tourism development and awaits tourists’ footprints.

From Quy Nhon City, tourists just head along National Highway 1A to Hoai Nhon District, and then continue on Hoai My Street to reach Lo Dieu. Lo Dieu Town is surrounded by magnificent mountain ranges and stunning beaches so tourists have to go through Lo Dieu and Ha Ra passes to get to the destination.

On the tops of the passes, travelers are richly rewarded with splendid, endless forests dotted with houses amidst immense rice fields and golden sand beaches. Residents in Lo Dieu live on fishing and the whole town has more than 100 basket boats to fish. Boats are often anchored near rock formations to be protected from storms or big waves.

Everyday, fishermen go fishing at around 4a.m. and come back at around 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. with boats full of fish, shrimps or crabs. The fresh seafood market then opens right on the beach and ends at noon.
