As one of the most beautiful beaches in Quy Nhon, Ky Co still retains the pristine beauty of nature. From a distance, you will be overwhelmed by the majestic mountains and green trees. To get to Ky Co, most tourists choose to travel by canoe to enjoy the feeling of surfing on the surface of the sea, or even be able to see some friendly dolphins. The canoes will travel around the mountains so that you can admire small caves under the ravine or even see the statue of Guanyin Buddha which overlooks the sea.

As there are not many tourist services on the island, the first impression you have here will be its wildness. Ky Co's nature is charming with fine white sand, undulating cliffs, and a curved beach like a crescent moon. The rocks of all shapes and sizes are surrounded by craggy cliffs reaching out to the sea, creating a unique scene. When the tide reaches its lowest level, the huge cliffs protrude more clearly, making you excited.

The most unique thing is probably Ky Co sea water, which is divided into two distinct colours as an impressive natural picture. Near the shore, the sea has such a clear blue colour that you can see the bottom, while the farther you go from the shore, the darker the sea water becomes, which is like undulating strips of silk. When coming here, you should enjoy swimming activities with the feeling of immersing yourselves in the cool water surrounded by breath-taking intact landscapes.

In Ky Co, you can also visit Yen bridge (with a length of 800m) that has attracted many tourists thanks to its vibrant colors. The bridge is built around the cliff with the highlight of a red heart. The end of the bridge leads to the area for scuba diving (to see coral reefs) and seawalker (walking under the ocean). The scuba diving service is usually provided by tours with prices ranging from VND 700,000 to 1 million/20 minutes.

If you have time, you can visit the nearby islands of Hon Can, Hon Seo and Hon Yen.
