Vũng Tàu has extensive beaches, including Back Beach (Bãi Sau) and Front Beach (Bãi Trước). During 14th and 15th centuries, the cape that would become Vũng Tàu was a swamp which European trading ships visited regularly. The ships’ activities inspired the name Vũng Tàu, which means “anchorage”. French colonizers called it “Cap Saint Jacques” (“Cap Xanh Giắc”, in Vietnamese). The cliff of Vũng Tàu is now called Mũi Nghinh Phong (literally meaning “Cape of breeze welcome“). From Hồ Chí Minh City, it takes two and a half hours to reach Vũng Tàu by road (51A Expressway), or two hours by hydrofoil, or use private taxi services such as Vinasun.
