Ho Coc Beach, Ho Coc: With golden sands, rolling inland dunes and clear waters, this beach makes a tempting place to stop. There's one big hotel resort here, very much geared at the local market, but on weekdays it's still peaceful and you should have the beach largely to yourself. About 300m inland from the beach, Hotel Ven Ven is tasteful, with classy, well-appointed rooms in lush gardens. The restaurant here is good, if quite pricey, and strong on seafood (meals 60,000d upwards). The new road continues to wind along the coast, fringed by casuarinas and sand dunes, until it reaches Ho Coc Beach. Ho coach is a spellbinding, a 5km stretch of wonderful golden sand, dotted with coracles and large boulders, lapped by clear waters and backed by fine dunes. It’s still in the early stages of development, but you’ll be able to find a simple place to stay. As with most places around here, it gets crowded with day-trippers at the weekend but is practically deserted during the week. Ho Coc (Coc Lake) Beach with its turquoise water and primitive forests has become a popular tourist spot in the southern province of BA Ria-Vung Tau, attracting an increasing number of both day-trippers and overnighters.
