Vietnam’s Beaches

With a long, sandy coastline, over three thousand kilometres in length and with clusters of palm fringed islands, Vietnam can boast beaches to suit any preference and for any time of year.

Nha Trang is Vietnam’s premier beach destination, home to two of Vietnam’s best beach resorts, one of which is on the mainland and one is on a small island nearby. The town itself is a lively port town with excellent seafood and some interesting Cham ruins nearby. It is also possible to dive or snorkel in this area and a boat trip around the islands lying off the coast is another delightful way to pass the time.

Hoi An town is also known for its fine white sand beach, around three kilometres from the main town. This is a great option for those who wish to combine interesting touring with time spent relaxing on the beach.

In Southern Vietnam, Phan Thiet district is home to the peaceful fishing village of Mui Ne, whose endless stretch of white beach now offers a range of resorts. Thanks to its proximity to Saigon, Mui Ne is popular with tourists and locals alike and its location means that it is the perfect way to end a Vietnam trip. Mui Ne has become popular for kite surfing and the nearby sand dunes are more reminiscent of Africa than Vietnam!

A recent addition to the Viatnem beach scener, Con Dao, a 45 minute flight from Saigon, set is off the south-east coast of mainland Vietnam. Wide flat sandy beaches await and the diving and snorkelling is some of the best in Vietnam with 1,300 species of marine life in the archipelago including rare dugongs and sea turtles which nest on the surrounding beaches. Hiking and cycling round the island is popular and Con Dao has some interesting merchant history and local culture to discover.

Phu Quoc Island is situated off the South coast of Vietnam, close to Cambodia. This small and unspoiled island is only a short flight from Saigon and remains a quiet and laid back destination, perfect for those wishing to escape the crowds.
