Information Quy Nhon City

The small peninsula city of Quy Nhon is sheltered by outlying islands and a curved spit of land like a "cap," which makes this a very effective deep-water port, the most important in a long stretch between Danang and Nha Trang. As a result of this strategic importance, the town was hotly contested over for centuries, first by the Chinese and later by the French and the Americans (some of the largest U.S. troop deployments, including the famed "Air Cav" unit, came ashore here at Quy Nhon in 1968).

Although it's long been -- and continues to be -- more of a fishing port than a tourist destination, Quy Nhon's long central beach is beginning to attract new developments for tourists. The beach in town is still a parking place for skiffs and basket boats, mostly littered with old nets and garbage, but construction is underway on a new deep-water port in the harbor. The plan is that by 2007 the central beach will be devoid of industry and open for tourists. For now, you can find a few good places to kick back and get your toes in the sand just a short ride from town.
