Prominent in the group of beautiful beaches in Da Nang as well as in Vietnam is My Khe beach, located in the city center, along Vo Nguyen Giap road.

The attraction of My Khe beach lies in the long and wide white sand beach. The sea level is shallow, so it is convenient for playing and swimming.

This beach is most crowded in the late afternoon and dawn on summer days from May to September.

Right in the My Khe area, there are many seafood restaurants for you to enjoy, and also many large and small hotels to meet the needs of accommodation.

Lang Co Beach is located at the foot of Hai Van Pass, 60km from Hue city center. This place is also in the top most beautiful places in the world according to Worldbays Club, selected in 2009.

Lang Co is likened to a young girl still sleeping because a lot of the tourism potential has not been exploited as much as it is. The sea here is very pretty to take beautiful pictures and watch the sunrise or sunset.

You can choose from beautiful resorts on Lang Co beach and enjoy a seafood lunch in a floating restaurant in Lap An lagoon not far from the beach.

Located at the end of Hai Ba Trung street, on the route from Hoi An to Da Nang, only 3 km from the center of the old town, An Bang beach has become an exciting place to swim and rest for many tourists.

An Bang beach is beautiful and gentle, not as noisy as other places. Although there are many restaurants, it is very well organized, neat and tidy.

The beauty of this place is pristine and the 4km long fine sand makes a charm that can make you nostalgic every time you visit An Bang.

Many tourists come to An Bang beach in the afternoon to swim and rest to enjoy meals until late at night.

One point worth noting is that this beautiful beach in Hoi An has many tourists but there are no hotels or resorts on the beach. However, just a short distance away you will find many large and small hotels and 5-star resorts on Cua Dai or Ha My beaches.

4. The Central Beach of Nha Trang

Nha Trang beach with a long sandy shore is located in the center of the city of the same name, so it is very convenient to swim and relax.

The rows of coconut trees and casuarina trees in the park along the coast add to the charm of the beach.

In addition, the remote small islands create a useful windbreak wall, so the sea has only small waves, suitable for the whole family to play and swim.

What’s great, because it’s right in the city, in the evening Nha Trang beach is still suitable for walking and relaxing. However, do not go to a dark place to be safer.

5. Cua Lo Beach Nghe An

With a length of 10km, Cua Lo beach in Vinh city, Nghe An province, is always ranked on the list of beautiful beaches in Vietnam.

The charm of Cua Lo comes from the long, smooth sand that blends with the pristine beauty and has been renovated by humans.

Every early morning on the sea, you will encounter fishermen catching fish, creating a bustling atmosphere, and adding vitality to this peaceful sea.

In the evening, enjoying the sea breeze while tasting seafood on the beach and a few cans of Vietnamese beer brands will help you dispel the fatigue and noise of the city.

Located in Ly Nhon commune, Binh Dinh province, 25 km southeast of Quy Nhon city center, Ky Co beach has 3 sides surrounded by rocky mountains and the other side is a beautiful golden sand beach with a clear blue sea.

With unspoiled beauty, and both rocky mountains and blue sea creating beautiful scenery, Ky Co beach attracts many tourists to swim and take pictures. The right time to visit this destination is from February to September every year.

The road to Ky Co beach is still quite difficult because it situates on the peninsula. From Quy Nhon city, you can move to Eo Gio and rent a canoe to go to Ky Co. Another option is to go by car or motorbike right from Quy Nhon city. However, go with a local driver or guide who will be more supportive.

7. Ninh Chu Beach in Ninh Thuan

Ninh Chu Beach is also on the list of clean and beautiful Vietnamese beaches, located in Binh Son village, Khanh Hai town, Ninh Thuan province, 5km east of Phan Rang city center.

With a length of about 10km, a wide sandy beach, and strictly managed, Ninh Chu beach keeps a clean space both on the shore and in the water space.

Another special feature is that although this place is for the construction of hotels and resorts, it is well planned, creating an airy space. These resorts are not allowed to occupy any beaches of their own, making friendliness with everyone. All the sea belongs to the public.

With the wide sand on the coast, many companies often choose this beach to organize team-building activities and important parties.

8. Ho Tram Beach in Vung Tau
