Bau Trang is located in Hong Lam hamlet, Hoa Thang commune, Bac Binh district, about 65km North East of Phan Thiet city.


Visitors come to Bau Trang by two different ways: From Phan Thiet, they go along the beach to Mui Ne, cross Mui Ne market and Doi Hong (Pink Hill). Then we continue to go along the beach for about one hour to Bau Trang. By another way, they go along national highway one A to Luong Son and take a turn to the right about 18km, cross bare hills, go through a forest of smooth green coconuts on white sand hills and then to Bau Trang.

Bau Trang has formed for a long time. The word of “Bàu” in the dialect means “Lake”. Bau Trang is divided into two parts, which called Bau Ong (Mister Lake) and Bau Ba (Lady Lake). It has the area of 70 ha, the widest place is about 500meter, the average depth is 5 meter and the deepest place is 19 meter in the rainy season. Bau Ba, in the middle of the white sand hills, is called Bau Sen (Lotus Lake), because lotus in bloom covers the surface of the lake. The creature system in Bau Sen is very abundant and there are kinds of fish.
Bau Trang still has wild and plain features with the white sand hills and the wave sough, which attracts people addicted to the beauty of this place in order to have an inspiration of composing art.
To Bau Trang, visitors can rent a boat from the local residents here to go sightseeing or fishing. Cool and fresh water all the year round makes the hot air of the vast sand hills gentle, which creates a romantic landscape. Therefore, anyone that goes by this area wants to visit Bau Trang.
