Stretching out over 3000 kilometers, Vietnamese coastline expands from the Gulf of Tonkin in the North to the Gulf of Thailand in the South.


As a result, there are many wonderfully gorgeous tropical beaches in Vietnam that have been addicted destinations to both locals and foreigners. And below are Top 5 Beaches in Vietnam that you should know while hunting for an idyllic destination for your treasured holiday.

Nha Trang

Located in the Khanh Hoa province, Nha Trang may be the most well-known tourist beach in Vietnam. This place has been also developed in term of accommodations, restaurants and nightlife as well. Coming to Nha Trang, you can take a wonderful adventure with diving and snorkeling in the never-ending stretching beach.


These are great ways to get close with the natural kaleidoscope under the water surface. Divers usually investigate thoroughly about the long coral reefs, natural caves and home to many different marine creatures. You can also join some activities above water such as wakeboarding, kite surfing, etc. Immerse yourself in the clear water stream and the white sand as you can see.


If you are looking for more than just lying on the sand beach and having taste of fabulous seafood, just set off towards this place. Danang Beach was used to be known as a central fighting area during the Vietnam War that held a significant status in the country’s history.


Now it is popular for many great beaches with many exhilarating features such as surfing, scuba diving and even glamorous resort. The white sands are surrounded by natural pines forests and coconut palms. Lang Co Beach, My Khe Beach, Non Nuoc Beach, and Son Tra Peninsula, all of them offer breathtaking views in pure nature and some rare wild species. You can paddle around in the early misty morning or sit in the dazzling sunset and feel the quiet charm of this pleasurable area.

Phu Quoc Island

Phu Quoc is a small island to the southern of Vietnam and on the west coast of the Mekong Delta. The varied landscapes are built from forest lands, pepper plantations and long white sand beaches.


Until now, whenever coming to this area, you still can experience its unspoiled charisma with dirt roads, serene coasts and limited tourism services. Phu Quoc also preserves its undiscovered navy blue waters as well as spectacular grilled seafood.


When you set foot in Phu Quoc, make sure to check out Long Beach – the first beach in Vietnam to be listed on CNN.com’s featured list. If you are kind of more courageous, just rent a motorbike and travel around the island to explore closer beauty of local life. Who knows, maybe you can somewhat find out a deserted spot for yourself!

Mui Ne

Mui Ne has become a prominent beach for backpackers and adventurers in recent year. The resort side lies on the southern end of the island, and the restaurants and bars are always available for every party into the night. Moreover, Mui Ne can be considered as the water sports capital of Vietnam! There you will find numerous activities on water, from diving, snorkeling, to windsurfing and kite boarding as well.


In Mui Ne, you can find everything you want. Linger around to have sights of stunning beaches lined with groves of palm trees; enormous saharan dunes through dozens of kilometers of soft white sands.


Come across fresh fish and crabs; take a look at tall mountains with bamboo rainforests and untouched natural waterfalls. You can even hear the humming of tropical birds early in the morning at Mui Ne.

Cat Ba Island

There is an enormous assortment of activities you can try out in this place: sailing, , hiking, bird-watching, rock climbing, etc. Most of the surface streams of the island are seasonal.
