The name "Doc Let" comes from the fact that this beach owns pure white sand dunes, stretching thousands of meters above the ocean line separating the mainland from the sea. Therefore, to get over the sand dunes and to reach the beach is quite tiring, the word  “Let” or “Lết” in Vietnamese means “drag to go” due to the hard moving topography.
