Xuan Dai Bay national tourist site spans Song Cau town and Tuy An district, with total core area of 1,200 hectares, excluding water area.

The bay features many beautiful beaches such as Vung La, Vung Su and Vung Chao, along with many islands and peninsulas. Experts say the site has high potential in tourism development, especially for resorts, beach sports and eco-tourism.

The plan hopes that the bay will welcome about 850,000 tourists, including 25,000 foreigners in 2020 and about 1.2 million visitors, including 35,000 foreigners in 2030. Total revenue from tourism is expected to exceed 400 billion VND (17.64 million USD) in 2025 and 900 billion VND (39.69 million USD) in 2030.

Along with the domestic market, the plan also targets foreign markets including West Europe, North America and East Europe, along with northeastern Asian countries such as the Republic of Korea, Taiwan (China) and Japan, as well as nearby countries including Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.

The plan focuses on developing resorts, cruisers, sport tourism, eco-tourism, culture-history tourism and cuisine tourism.

In order to reach the goals, the plan detailed a number of solutions, including those on planning and planning management, tax policies, investment attraction and community-based tourism. It also gives measures to complete the tourism infrastructure system and develop human resources.
