Travelers planning a trip to Vietnam in the near future should consider visiting one of the many beautiful beach destinations the vibrant country has to offer, according to a recent article published by India's leading travel magazine Outlook Traveler.

Author Waquar Habib suggested some of the best places to enjoy Vietnamese sun, surf, and sand, including the UNESCO-listed Ha Long Bay, the sandy dunes of Mui Ne, and the island escapes of Con Dao and Phu Quoc.

The Indian media outlet recommended that a day trip to Ha Long Bay, an awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an absolute must for all visitors.


The central region of Vietnam is home to many beautiful beach destinations

Ha Long Bay is renowned for its unique limestone formations, but also offers some stunning beaches. One of the most popular beaches is Bai Chay, which is artificial and attracts plenty tourists.

In order to get the whole experience, visitors are advised to take a boat tour to Ti Top Island in the middle of the bay, where travelers can find a lovely beach.

Con Dao which comprises 16 islands in southern Vietnam is another good choice for trips around the country. Con Son, the main island of the Con Dao archipelago, is blessed with wonderful beaches, turquoise water, and rich coral reefs. It has also been declared as a National Park.

The third beautiful beach destination in Vietnam is Phu Quoc. Khem Beach, also known as "Cream Beach", is one of the world's finest at the southern tip of the island. Similarly, Sao Beach is located nearby and offers palm-fringed shores, white sand, and breathtaking views.

The article also shared that Doc Let is a beautiful bay situated just an hour from Nha Trang City. The area is a hidden gem with its environs unexplored and pristine that boasts around 11 miles of white sandy beaches and crystal-clear blue water.

Elsewhere on the list is Da Nang, a beautiful coastal city. Travellers here can look forward to many water sports like surfing, snorkeling, and jet-skiing. Guests can also explore the Tien Sa Beach on a motorbike to the north of the Son Tra Peninsula.

Another hidden gem is Ho Coc, a coastal region famous for its quiet and clean Ho Coc Beach. Located north of Ho Tram in Ba Ria-Vung Tau province, this beach is nestled in a bay surrounded by forests and dunes.

The final destination on the list is Hoi An which is a historically rich city in central Vietnam, which dates back to the 15th century. It is famous for its well-preserved architectural heritage reflecting French, Chinese, and Japanese cultures.

Moreover, the UNESCO-listed Ancient Town is also a site boasting beautiful beaches, including Cua Dai Beach which is known as a serene escape.

The hidden gem is the Cham Islands, a cluster of eight pristine islands along the coast. UNESCO recognises these islands as a biosphere reserve. These islands boast a wide variety of plants and marine life, with over 200 fish species, making them a paradise for both beach lovers and nature enthusiasts.
