Indeed with a superb choice of beach resorts, a host of activities to indulge in and wonderful food, the prospect of a Holiday to Vietnam in its own right is an enticing prospect.
Luxury Travel will help you choose the right resort and hotel to suit you but here a quick rundown of the best beaches in Vietnam to get you started.
The first and undoubtedly most developed of Vietnam’s beaches, Nha Trang is a vibrant beachfront city with buzzing nightlife. The heavyweight champion of Vietnam, Nha Trang has been knocking out visitors for years. The town is brazen and brash, but the beach is bold and beautiful and a gateway to a cluster of quieter islands.
Located in the Khanh Hoa province, Nha Trang is a busy beach area known for its endless days of sunshine. The beach is notably home to Rainbow Divers, Vietnam’s first PADI-certified dive center. Divers explore hard and soft coral reefs, caves and walls for some of the best diving in the South China Sea. Adventures above water include wakeboarding, kite surfing and banana boat rides. Divers and aquatic athletes relax poolside and exchange stories over unique brews at the beach bar and pool at Louisiane Brewhouse. The luxurious Evason Ana Mandara and Six Senses Spa has a private beach and quick access to the countryside and nearby mountains. The Vinpearl Resort and Spais a resort island that can be reached by motorboat or the Vinpearl cable car, the longest sea-crossing cable car system in the world. In addition to the 5-star resort, there’s an amusement park, shopping mall and endless entertainment options both on the beach and off.
The local diving is superb and there’s a host of water sports on offer including wakeboarding, kite surfing and kayaking.
While the rest of the world is sunning itself in Nha Trang, slip up the coast to this little teaser, home to some atmospheric resorts and some squeaky white sand; a place to get away from it all.
Doc Let is just 30 miles from the bustling beach town Nha Trang, but it offers a vastly different beach experience. There are few tourist facilities making this a popular choice with renegade travelers looking to forgo the crowds to settle into a beach paradise with lots of peace and quiet. The Paradise Resort Hotel has 25 simple but comfortable beach bungalows and a friendly proprietor. Prices include 3 meals a day so there’s no reason to stray far from the beach. The White Sand Doc Let Resort and Spabrings 4-star luxury to the area with 54 luxurious rooms and villas overlooking the turquoise waters and private sandy white shores.
This quiet island to the west of the Mekong Delta offers fabulous white beaches and a lush interior of forests and plantations. Despite a select few resorts arriving, the pace of life is still most definitely on the sleepy side.
Simply the most beautiful island in Vietnam, Phu Quoc is liberally sprinkled with picture-perfect white sand beaches and cloaked in dense, impenetrable jungle. Long Beach is sophisticated, Ong Lan Beach romantic, and Bai Sao simply irresistible.
Located off the west coast of the Mekong Delta, Phu Quoc Island is bit off the standard tourist track. The diverse topography is made up of national forest land, pepper plantations and sprawling white sands beaches. The island still maintains some of its untouched charm with dirt roads, quiet shores and limited tourist services. The most developed beach area is along Long Beach with large resorts and great budget options like the Beach Club. La Veranda Resort, an exclusive boutique hotel, is an elegant seaside escape. This French colonial-style mansion sits located on Duong Dong Beach on the shores of the Gulf of Thailand.
