If you want to get an exotic experience of tradition and culture, delicious sea food, unique and picturesque landscapes, then Vietnam is your one stop destination. What you will take home is memories of elegant view of Vietnam beaches and delicious taste of sea food. If you are in Vietnam, then you must visit Lang Co Beach. Situated between the majestic Truong Son Mountains and dazzlingly blue eastern Sea, natural landscape here will leave you awestruck. You will forget the hustle bustle of the city when you are at Lang Co Beach. Titled as “one of the most attractive beaches on the planet” by Forbes magazine, My Khe Beach is considered to be Vietnam’s most picturesque Beach. Clear blue sky, smooth white sand and beautiful areas surrounded by coconut trees will surely make you fall in love with the My Khe Beach. Here are the Best Vietnam Beaches:
Hon Chong Beach, Nha Trang
The narrow granite promontory of Hon Chong offers fine views of the mountainous coastline north of Nha Trang and the nearby islands. The beach here has a more local flavor than Nha Trang Beach (but the accompanying refuse is unpleasant). Still, it’s fun to watch the local kids do Acapulco-style swan dives into the ocean.
There are a reconstructed traditional run residence and a great cafe. About 300m south of Hon Chong (towards Nha Trang) and a few dozen meters from the beach is tiny Hon Do (Red Island), which has a Buddhist temple on top. To the northeast is Hon Rua (Tortoise Island), which really does resemble a tortoise. The two islands of Hon Yen (Bird’s-Nest Island) are off in the distance to the east.
A well-known spot of scenic beauty, the Rock Hon Chong is not only attractive to visitors to Nha Trang but also no less allure to the local inhabitants, children as well as grownups who have made frequent visits to this place. In the vernacular, it means the “Husband Rock“, the name given to one of the two rocks, the couple, the other one is the wife.
Ho Coc Beach, Ho Coc
With golden sands, rolling inland dunes and clear waters, this beach makes a tempting place to stop. There’s one big hotel resort here, very much geared at the local market, but on weekdays it’s still peaceful and you should have the beach largely to yourself. About 300m inland from the beach, Hotel Ven Ven is tasteful, with classy, well-appointed rooms in lush gardens. The restaurant here is good, if quite pricey, and strong on seafood. The new road continues to wind along the coast, fringed by casuarinas and sand dunes, until it reaches Ho Coc Beach. Ho coach is a spellbinding, a 5km stretch of wonderful golden sand, dotted with coracles and large boulders, lapped by clear waters and backed by fine dunes. It’s still in the early stages of development, but you’ll be able to find a simple place to stay. As with most places around here, it gets crowded with day-trippers at the weekend but is practically deserted during the week. Ho Coc (Coc Lake) Beach with its turquoise water and primitive forests has become a popular tourist spot in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau, attracting an increasing number of both day-trippers and overnighters.
Doc Let Beach, Hon Khoi Peninsula
At Ninh Hoa, about 33km north of Nha Trang, Highway 26 branches off left from Highway 1 to Buon Ma Thuot, then about 5km later, a signposted turning on the right leads 12km to the splendid Hon Khoi Peninsula, on which you’ll find pristine Doc Let Beach. You’ll probably be keen to linger here a while: the casuarinas and white sands of the beach are perfect for a day’s beach-bumming, although you do have to pay a small entrance fee for the privilege unless you are staying at one of the resorts here. Doc Let Beach is suggested as ideal for summer vacation, especially for Saigonese to flee the heat and the ear-splitting noises of urban life. After visiting the Nha Trang City and other famous destinations such as Hon Tre Islet, Hon Tam Ecotourism Park, Bai Dai Beach and Cham Towers, tourists should take a trip on National Highway 1 to the north to stop by Ninh Hoa which pledges to put a nice impression in tourists’ eyes and memory by its stunning Doc Let Beach. The surface of the sea shimmers with the lights of the fishing boats. Indulging in the vapor lights of the boats, the twinkling lights of the stars and the soft sounds of the waves and winds, daily stress is swept away.
Quan Lan, Bai Tu Long
Bai Tu Long bay is located east of Halong bay and definitely as breathtaking as its well-known neighbor. Bai Tu Long is getting more and more popular among visitors wanting something newer and quieter than the overly touristy Halong bay. These days there are a lot of Halong cruises that include Bai Tu Long bay as a fixed destination during their cruising itineraries in response to the growing demand from tourists. Bai Tu Long bay offers the same impressive scenery of the sea and islands as Halong bay, but more pristine and less crowded. Visitors who love adventure and nature should probably start with Bai Tu Long Park. The area of thick jungles is protected and secured by the Government with some of Vietnam’s endangered species of birds and animals. With luck, you might see some of them with your own eyes. At the Bai Tu Long Bay, you sense calmness as you go further and further in. It is spectacular. Surrounded by the limestone karsts, which emerge from the water like parts of that proverbial dragon, you begin to marvel at this unique World Heritage locale.
City Beach, Nha Trang
Loud and proud (say it!), the high-rise, the high-energy beach resort of Nha Trang enjoys a stunning setting: ringed by a necklace of hills, with a sweeping crescent beach, the city’s turquoise bay is dotted with tropical islands. The shoreline has been given a huge makeover in recent years, with parks and sculpture gardens spread along the impressive promenade, while the streets inland reveal some quirky boutiques and a cosmopolitan array of dining options. As the restaurants wind down, the nightlife cranks up – Nha Trang is a party town at heart like any self-respecting resort should be. Forget the cafes of the capital; people play late in this town. If cocktails and shooters aren’t your flavors, there are some more sedate activities on offer. Try an old-school spa treatment with a visit to a mud bath or explore centuries-old Cham towers still standing in the center of town. This part of the country has its very own microclimate and the rains tend to come from October until December, a time best avoided if you are into lazing on the beach or diving in the tropical waters.
