At night there was suddenly strong wind, the waves were strongly buckled. The deer fell down, turned into rocky mountains on the edge of the sea. Today, when sailing on the sea, watching the shore, people can see the mountain shaped like a baby deer drinking water. Since that reason, people called the beach Mui Nai.
