According to one of them, it is place where in the 13th century a fleet of food supply boats led by the Yuan-Mongol General Truong Van Ho was burned and destroyed by General Tran Khanh Du of the Tran dynasty. The burning fleet floated to the western shore of Halong Bay at Cua Luc and the wind blew the fire to a forest here to burn it out. That forest is Bai Chay today.
Another legend says that formerly ships anchored in Bai Chay in a harbor to the west of Cua Luc. Mollusks firmly clung to the bottom and lateral sides of the boats to damage them. Fishermen burned casuarina leaves around the boats so that the mollusks would fall off. From Hon Gai or elsewhere people often saw th glowing fire n Bai Chay, hence its name.
