    Description

    We are looking for travelers to come work with us and share the journey.. we look for people who have passion and want to put their soul and energy into helping the place grow and improve! \n\n\nThis is who we are:\n\nClassic music festivals are a place and a moment in history that revolutionized a movement of people. A place of ultimate freedom. A place where all people could laugh, love and express themselves despite any cultural or sexual differences. A place of pure social harmony; a victory of peace and love. \n\nImagine this freedom on a beautiful, lonely beach in Northern Vietnam. Picture beautiful-hand made bamboo tents, camp sites, hammocks, lounges, good food and cold beer. Picture a place created just for travelers, vagabonds, gypsies, wanderers, adventurers, nomads and holiday goers alike. Our Beach Camp is a hippy explosion that accommodates for all. \n\nThe beautiful wooden house can host the sort of travelers who like a comfortable bed and a warm shower after a relaxing day on the beach. Here you can enjoy a heightened view of the bay all beautiful in it’s solitude, surrounded by incredible mountains, palm trees and sand. \n\nOr, if you’re the sort of traveler that’s just happy to lay their head anywhere, you can sleep in among this incredible view by taking a hammock or one of our tents on the beach.\n\nEnjoy good music and feast your eyes as the sun sets and lights the surrounding mountains up in pinks and purples every night. All of our guests are given the opportunity to eat local, fresh food at our big Family Dinner each evening.\n\nOnce the sun goes down you can continue enjoying the beach by drinking beers by the fire, star gazing and watching the phosphorescence give us a natural light show in the water. Skinny dipping is not essential but highly encouraged. \n\nWe are situated about 10kms away from Cat Ba town, it’s quiet at night and not touristy in any sense. We have worked hard to create a place that is so unique and rare. There is quite literally, no place like this here. And the humans who run this incredible show? A bunch of travellers full of love, passion and a drive to make something unique for everyone else. This is our beach camp. Come eat, drink, create and stay for a bit. \n\nSide note - Jimi Hendrix won’t wake you up at 8:30am, unfortunately.
