When the tide is down the vast sand beach stretch away, when the tide is up, the water floods to make the forest edge. Standing on Ham Ninh beach, looking far away can see the Pirate Islands; deviate to the South is the cape Ong Doi, the farthest cape to the South.
Waters along the Ham Ninh coastline are relatively shallow, resulting in expansive beaches during the low tides. It can get rather polluted with rubbish from the main village, though, so we highly recommend walking further up north to enjoy a better beach setting.

Make your way to the Ham Ninh Market to enjoy sea cucumber soup, tram mushroom, and boiled flower crab as well as medicinal drinks made with seaweed, ginseng, seahorse, and rice wine.
