Vietnam Beach Holidays

With over 2,025 miles (3,260 km) of coastline, Vietnam’s beaches are plentiful and diverse. From remote tropical islands like Con Dao to small fishing villages like Phan Thiet and coastal cities like Da Nang and Nha Trang, there is a little slice of sand for everyone on Vietnam's coast.

Central Coast and Caves

My Khe beach runs for almost 20 miles along the coast from Son Tra Peninsula towards Hoi An. The section closest to the city is the most well-kept, with a number of large seafood restaurants and bars lining the promenade.

With some big name resort chains setting up on the sand itself, you could be forgiven for never leaving the beach. But, making time for trips to Lady Buddha and Marble Mountain will introduce you to more of Vietnamese culture. Heading into the city for incredible central Vietnamese cuisine is also a must.

Southeastern Coast

Long Beach is, you guessed it, Phu Quoc's biggest beach at 12 miles long. It's where the majority of the accommodations on the island are, as well as restaurants and shops. The other side of the island is far less developed, reached via quiet roads cut through the dense jungle and ending in palm-fringed beaches straight from a travel magazine.

You could spend a week riding around the island, hopping from white-sand beach to white-sand beach and never stepping on the same sand twice.
