The pure joy of getting sand on your toes, sun on your skin and saltwater in your hair is never far away when you’re in Vietnam. There are countless beaches to choose from – some well-known, others completely hidden. Vietnam’s islands of Con Dao and Phu Quoc are famous for having the most inviting water and pristine shores. If you enjoy a bit of activity and nightlife mixed into your beach holidays, the coastal towns of Da Nang and Nha Trang offer just that. Need an escape from the world? Humble Quy Nhon is a well-kept secret. Even more remote? Set your sights on Cham Islands or Tam Ky in Central Vietnam. See the stories below for more beach-y inspiration.
