This trip was above my expectations. Alex did an outstanding job of organizing everything perfectly. It was so interesting and I loved every minute. Excellent knowledgeable guides. Seamless travel, wonderful accommodation and unforgettable experiences. I learned so much. Highly recommended!  

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.
