Top Vietnam beaches –
Real hidden attractions

Do you know that two of Vietnam beaches are listed among the world’s 100 best beaches in a survey on the CNN travel website? 

Yes, they are An Bang (in Hoi An), and Bai Dai or Long Beach (in Phu Quoc).

With a coastline of over 3,000 kilometers, my country has many beautiful beaches, including the other two I mentioned above.

Those natural attractions have contributed more and more into the success of the state’s developing tourism market.

Here’s the list of top 5 Vietnam beaches that I pick up myself. They’re listed in the order of location from the north to the south.

Lang Co

Lang Co beach is situated along the side of the National Highway No.1A and belongs to Lang Co commune, Phu Loc district, Thua Thien Hue province.

Lang Co is a 10-kilometer stretch of white sand beach, behind which are the crystal-clear, blue Lap An Lagoon and a range of Bach Ma mountain.

The area offers travelers with various resources including coast, sand-bank, lagoon, mountain, and national garden.

My Khe (Da Nang) - Cua Dai (Hoi An)

Located only 6 kilometers east of Da nang, My Khe beach is a gorgeous destination of the Central City.

Both beaches are actually located on the same coastline stretch: My Khe in Da Nang, and Cua Dai in Hoi An.

My Khe beach enjoys the calm seas with blue water during four seasons and the high safety with good security. It’s perhaps the only night swimming beach in Vietnam thanks to lighting and guarding over night. Read more about Da Nang beach.

Nha Trang

Nha Trang beach is blessed with fine and fair sand, the mirror-like pure and clean ocean water, and the deeply mild temperature all the year round.

There are six major beaches in Nha Trang: four of them are in the north (Dai Lanh, Doc Let, Whale Island, and Jungle Beaches), the other two in the south (Tran Phu and Hong Chong Beaches), together with some small scattered beaches.

The great natural conditions well support for outdoor activities: sea swimming, boat sailing, scuba diving, kite boarding, football or badminton playing, etc.

There, tourists can savor excellent sea food such as fresh crabs, shrimps, squid, and especially salangane (yến sào) – a specialty of Vietnam’s sea zones.

Mui Ne

Mui Ne is situated in Phan Thiet, Binh Thuan province, south-eastern Vietnam. It’s a perfect getaway from Ho Chi Minh City, in about 5 hour bus sitting.

There’re great facilities for water sports including swimming, sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing. I believe this is among the best Vietnam beaches.

Somewhere around, travelers can try a golf course designed by Nick Faldo, enjoy good seafood, and have great day trips to remote sand dunes and small fishing villages.

Phu Quoc

Phu Quoc boasts vast tracts of interior forestland and far-flung beaches great for exploring by motorbike.

Actually, travelers can find many wild idyllic beaches on the island. Among of them, Bai Dai (Long Beach) is among CNN’s list of the top 100 most beautiful beaches in the world.


Besides above five beaches, my country have many more that I want to show you. I’ll collect, refine, and add interesting information about other popular beaches for your reference.

For now, your feedback is worth a lot to me.
