Stretching for 10km from the base of Son Tra Peninsula to the Marble Mountains (Ngu Hanh Son), My Khe attracts millions of tourists every year due to its central location (5km from city center), white sand and coconut-fringed beach, and clear warm water all year round.

Lang Co Beach, Hue

Lang Co Beach belongs to Lang Co township, Thua Thien Hue province, which is 50km drive from Phu Bai International Airport (Hue City) or 30km drive from Da Nang International Airport (Da Nang City). Located off the centre of the imperial city of Hue, Lang Co beach even though is not as famous as its neighbor My Khe, its idyllic and unparalleled natural beauty and luxury retreat is like no other. Either if you are looking for a short weekend getaway or longer stay, this turquoise beach is still a perfect choice.

An Bang Beach, Hoi An
This is one of the few stretches of beach in Hoi An that is relatively unspoiled by development. As it only takes a short drive from the cultural attactions of Hoi An and the waves are small, An Bang beach is a popular option for either those who want to soak up the sun or family with kids. Why not spending the day with the kids on the sea and heading back to the Hoi An Ancient Town in the late afternoon for a leisurely stroll across the winding lantern-lit streets.

Vinpearl Land, Nha Trang
Vinpearl Land Nha Trang is undoubtedly a perfect family retreat for parents and kids who seek the solace by the sea and at the same time the ease accessibility to the thrilling urban life. Just a cable car ride away from the city center, Vinpearl Land is the vibrant island with the giant theme park, entertainment centers, massive shopping malls, and beautiful beach that will keep your family busy all day. The gentle currents makes it perfect for swimming and safe for kids, and the sand is one of the most softest that you will ever find in Vietnam.

Ho Tram Beach, Vung Tau
Many associate the name of the area with the Grand Ho Tram Strip, a resort complex and upscale casino that draws affluent travelers. But Ho Tram has more to offer than just gambling. Located in the township of the same name, Ho Tram offers a broad white sand beach that is perfect for a family/romance getaway. However, the recent development focusing on high-end accommodation makes this area suitable for those who are searching for luxury retreat.

Mui Ne Beach, Mui Ne
Just like My Khe, Mui Ne is the ideal places for both water sports enthusiasts and more relaxed beach-goers. With great white-crested waves and strong wind, Mui Ne is heaven for those who are into surfing or kite surfing, while others can watch from a safe distance on the dry and sun-drenched land. In fact, Mui Ne’s unique microclimate makes it receive less rainfall than the surrounding areas, which means more sun time, and more fun time! If you are on your family vacation, there is a plenty of family-friendly resorts and restaurants to explore. If you are with your partner or friends, pubs, bars and romantic beach-side cafes are just steps away.

Ong Lang Beach, Phu Quoc
Phu Quoc, 1-hour flight from the bustling Ho Chi Minh City, is worldwidely known as one of the most beautiful islands of Vietnam with spectacular beaches. Located in the west coast of Phu Quoc, this serene sandy Ong Lang Beach is a quiet and peaceful corner while rapid development of the island is on the way. Spending the day under the tropical sun soaking yourself in the crystal clear water or lying comfortably on land and reading your favorite book, is the idea of bliss that this beach has to offer.

An Hai Beach, Con Dao
Despite being one of the most prinstine islands in Vietnam which is still not up for development, Con Dao Island seems to be overlooked by both domestic and international visitors when it comes to beach holiday. Many recalls the island by the famed Con Dao prison and makes this a popular destination for pilgrimage rather than sun, sea and sand. However, beaches here including An Hai beach with pearlescent sands bordered by tropical forest, should never be underestimated.
