Scuba diving is also one of the key attractions of seaside stays. Vietnam has fabulous diving spots where it is possible to admire various species of fish and corals such as in Nha Trang, Con Dao or on the island of Phu Quoc.

Bathing

The main activity during a seaside stay is of course swimming. In Vietnam, the water is often at a perfectly pleasant temperature for swimming during the day and even in the early evening. In addition, the quality of the water is remarkable, as is the fineness of the sand! Vietnam’s beaches are ideal for families as there are very few strong waves. Remember to follow the safety instructions and watch out for any jellyfish.

Seafood tasting

Don’t forget to taste the culinary specialties often based on fish and shellfish! Some beaches even have night markets where you can taste these tasty dishes in a festive and warm atmosphere. Otherwise, don’t hesitate to try out the small eateries or go for a walk in the fishing villages!

The first trip after covid 19 pandemic, 2nd time I worked with Alex, he was always great with everything we needed in Vietnam. The staff at IDC Travel always go the extra mile to please their customers. I would not hesitate to book with them again and definitely recommend the company.

We contacted Alex a few months prior to our travel to organise a private tour to the Northern Vietnam (Hanoi, Halong, etc). As we neared the date, we had to make some changes as pandemic has caused some changed on our travel plan. Alex is always very responsive and very flexible with our queries. Our trip was very well organised and everything went very smoothly. All the accomodation was booked according to our preferences. The driver and tour guide was very courteous and experienced. If I have to nit pick, I would probably say that the tour guide could do more with giving us more information about our activities. For example, when we did bike tour, it would be great if he warned us that we will be passing through the major road and sharing traffic with cars and trucks. Or how long the walking tour through the village going to be. Overall, we are very satisfied and I do think the tour is value for money, very well organised, and the staff are more than happy to cater for our needs.  

Beyond satisfied

I found IDC travel online because of the good reviews, and after a day of inquiring, Sir Alex responded right away with a detailed itinerary tailored to our preference! He is very responsive and accommodating with our needs, especially during our travel. Our trip in vietnam was organised, smooth, and really enjoyable! Even the organization of the itinerary and payments went smoothly. Some few comments would be agreeing to the previous review, like having the tour guide give us advices/tips about maybe the weather, what to wear, what to expect during the tours or anything important to bring if necessary so we could prepare better in terms of outfit, what to bring, etc. The drivers are very nice, but it would be even better if they greeted/welcomed us once we arrive. One driver did not have proper signage so we were waiting for quite awhile. Nevertheless, Sir Alex listened to our concerns and came up with solutions right away. Overall, we are very satisfied and it was great value for our money too. We booked another tour with them for Thailand this August. We cannot wait to book with them again in the future.

Amazing 8-day trip from South to North Vietnam

Alex helped me organize a wonderful trip for my family! He helped me a lot, from choosing locations and activities to shopping and dining details. Our trip was amazing. The tour guides were so enthusiastic. Our hotels were booked in the middle of crowded streets in the downtown areas, which allowed us to explore at night and enjoy the lively local lifestyle. In addition, the trip was reasonably priced and customized to meet our needs. We are grateful to you, Alex, and we can't wait for our next visit.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone who travels alone and just has a short-day trip like me. It was so well-organized with 10 days traveling from North to South Vietnam and visiting all the typical places here : Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Ninh Binh, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City and Mekong Delta. Everyone I met was so nice: my guides, all the new friends that I made, and local people. The service was excellent. I'm really happy with my hotels during the trip, so clean and lovely. Thanks for a great tour!  

Great time in Vietnam

I had a wonderful trip thanks to Mr. Alex Duy who was so nice and supportive. IDC Travel's services were amazing and both of us had a great time in Vietnam. We love this itinerary, it was so well organized and so interesting. We will book again with your team if we plan to come back to Southeast Asia again.

 

The first step in planning is knowing when you are going and how long you want to stay at the beach. When you go will determine which part of Vietnam has the best weather.

It is also useful to know how long you want to stay. Do you want to live experiences in the city during your trip? The length of your stay will help determine which beach is best.

The next step is to choose the beach that suits your travel style and needs. In general, Nha Trang is a great place for a simple beach vacation where travelers can get their money’s worth. For people looking for luxury experiences, the beaches of Hue and Da Nang are the best.

Finally, in Vietnam, the choice of hotels is endless and it is important to choose the right hotel for your trip. Solo travelers and families generally look for good-value hotels that are located near the beach or major area attractions.

Honeymooners or those seeking luxury often feel more comfortable on a private beach, in a villa or resort.

 


The best time to visit the beaches of Vietnam depends on the area you want to go. However, as the best beaches stretch from the center to the south of the country, there is always a good beach break to take, whatever season you are travelling.

From the northern regions of Halong Bay to the secluded island of Phu Quoc in the south, Vietnam has gorgeous beaches for swimming, snorkeling, water sports and quiet relaxation.
