Da Nhay, also known as the “jumping rocks,” is a stunning beach located 25 kilometers north of Dong Hoi City in Quang Binh Province, Vietnam. It’s a must-visit destination in Quang Binh, alongside the renowned Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park, which is a World Natural Heritage site.
The name “Da Nha” in Vietnamese translates to “the rocks that jump,” and it perfectly describes the unique landscape of this beach. Thousands of rocks stretch out into the sea, surrounding small sandy beaches that are perfect for swimming and sunbathing.
This beach boasts pristine white sands, rocky mountains, and stone formations in various shapes and sizes. You’ll be captivated by the rocks that resemble toads, reclining buffaloes, kneeling tigers, and even prostrating elephants.
One of the highlights of Da Nhay Beach is the Toad Well, a natural well covered by a large rock shaped like a toad. The water in this well is crystal clear and warm in the winter, while it stays refreshingly cool in the summer. Local fishermen use the water from the well for offerings at the nearby Grace Nam Hai temple.
