The organization, shortly known as World-Bays, has put Lang Co in Thua Thien-Hue Province on its website. The club is scheduled to make the new member public during its 5th World Congress in Portugal on May 15-17. Mozambique’s Pemba Bay and Colombia’s Cartegena Bay will also be honored during the event.

With its 10km in length, Lang Co Beach borders a section of National Highway 1A, next to Hai Van Pass, and more than 20 km from Mount Bach Ma.

The club says it plans to hold the 2010 world congress in Vietnam’s northern coastal province of Quang Ninh, home to Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
