    Vietnam beach

    Vietnam is blessed with a coastline stretching 3,000 kilometers with hundreds of beaches up and down the country that cater to all tastes; from white sand beaches where you can view sunsets, to beaches with 5 star facilities, and beaches with nothing at all to do except swim, relax and enjoy the local culture.

    Starting in the Far North, bordering China is Tra Co, not a beautiful beach by anyoneís standards what with its muddy flats at low tide; but itís a pleasant place to stay if youíre on your way into our out of China, before heading to Halong BayBai Chay beach is the nearest to Hanoi, so it draws a huge crowd of people on the weekends and in summer. It too doesnít live up to the beauty of the southern beaches, but does serve up some good seafood harvested from nearby Halong Bay. It certainly isnít a place to come in winter as temperatures can drop to the 15 degree C mark.

    Halong Bay offers plenty of small beaches, most of them on islands in the middle of the Bay (though the majority of islands are too steep and rocky to have beaches).These are best visited by kayak because large touring boats dontít have the shallow depth to approach the rocky shore.
    The North Central Coast of Vietnam stretches all the way down to the Hai Van Pass, and is almost a continuous stretch of golden sand pounded by huge waves churned by the frequent typhoons. Its an area rarely visited by travelers, because most either fly or take the train straight between Hue and Hanoi, but if youíve got time they are beautifully deserted and make excellent places to go for long walks. Locals will regard you with great curiosity, and may even follow you to practice their English.
    Though the facilities are scarce here, (you wonít find restaurants selling to tourists just yet) it is a rewarding break from the long drive on Highway 1. Take note however, that its not a wise idea to walk any of the beaches near the DMZ and Dong Ha, because of mines, unexploded ordinances can still be found in this area.
    The Central and South Central Coast of Vietnam offers the countries best beaches: from Hue to Nha Trang, the miles of coast is populated with coconut palms and dotted with fishing villages with lots of facilities and choices to make your vacation comfortable.
    My Khe beach to Vietnamese, or China Beach to foreigners, looks out at Monkey Mountain east of Danang Bay. Itís by no means deserted, because locals use the beach as a place to play football, do morning exercises and just chat away with friends. It has some of Vietnamís best surf beaches and in November waves can reach two meters.
    Its here where 5 star resorts like the Furama and the Lang Co resort (north of the Hai Van Pass) are situated and offer the best services in the country including al fresco dining, water sports and day tours.
    The beach is also incorrectly linked with the first landing of American Marines in 1963. In fact, it was Red Beach, around the point in Danang Bay, where this took place. My Khe was the spot where numerous attacks took place in the American war and it was a center of fierce fighting in the late 1960ís.
    From Danang, the lazy coastline stretches all the way down to Nha Trang. Dozens of beaches, many of them just a few meters from Highway I can be visited as you drive south. Facilities are mushrooming up to meet the demand of the numerous tour buses that now ply these routes. Seafood restaurants, guesthouses and other businesses are making this area easier to visit.
    Nha Trang is the epicenter of the beach travel industry in Vietnam, and if youíre looking for a secluded beach, you wonít find it here. But if you want to enjoy a day trip out to the islands in Nha Trang Bay, where you can snorkel and swim, then Nha Trang is the place for you. One of the best things in the city is its marvelous seafood, which includes abalone, prawns, scallops and crabs.
    Doc Let is 40 kilometers north of Nha Trang, and its here where youíll find solitude and long deserted beaches; the shallow bay in front is perfect for a swim and the place is famous for its boiled crabs.
    Even further south is Phan Thiet and Mui Ne, close enough to Saigon to be a popular weekend outing destination for residents there. Its got a laid back feels, and includes 4 star hotels like the Nototel Corallia, so roughing it isnít required here.
    Even closer to Saigon is Vung Tau, and serves much the same function as Bai Chay near Hanoi; itís the closest and cheapest destination for Saigonese to escape the crowded city streets. Again, if you're looking for solitude, this isnít the place, because on Sundays the beaches are packed.
    Phu Quoc has the whitest sand beaches in the country, and if you want to watch the sun set (itís the only place in Vietnam where you can do this) this is the place to come. Geologically, it's totally different to the other Vietnam beach, because it's in the Gulf of Thailand, and Phu Quoc closely resembles Koh Chang or Koh Samet near Bangkok. Just an hour flight from Saigon and youíll be enjoying the sun, sea and seafood of Vietnamís most southern beach.Vietnam holidays,vietnam travel
    North to South, there are a multitude of choices in beaches so whatever kind of beach you are looking for youíll find it in Vietnam

    Non nuoc beach
    has a coastline of 30 kilometres long, famous for many beautiful seashores stretching from the north to the south such as My Khe, Thanh Binh, Tien Sa, Son Tra and so on. Non Nuoc Beach also pertains to Da Nang Sea and has been voted as one of the most beautiful and attracting beaches of the planet, 2005, according to Forbes, the leading magazine of America. This beach has gentle slope, mild waves, and purely blue sea water during the four seasons. The unpolluted water source here has attracted a number of tourists coming to bathe, enjoy local special sea foods and take a rest for weekends. The beach Non Nước is also a place that exist precious and rare seaweeds such as gracilarias "yellow thread" and glacilaria "screw" that have high value of exporting.
    With green water and white sand, Non Nuoc Beach stretches five kilometers along the shore of Hoa Hai Ward at the foot of Ngu Hanh Son (The Marble Mountains). The beach is famous for its seaweed, which reaches exportation standards. Many five-star hotels were built in Non Nuoc to accommodate the domestic and foreign tourists in Vietnam travel. Together with its feature of wave degree, climate, weather and salinity, Non Nuoc Beach is suitable for water sports, especially surfing. In 1993, there took place an international champion with the participation of nearly 40 athletes from many countries around the world.
    Along the beach, on the white sand is a forest of age-old casuarinas which is shady, green and is waving in the whistling wind. This is an ideal place for resting and camping. When the darkness falls and the moon rises, you can set yourself free on smooth benches along the beach to listen to melodious sounds of the waves and enjoy the occult space.
    The beach is managed by the Non Nuoc Tourism Company that has three hotels with more than 100 rooms on the beach. They provide entertainment services including photographs for souvenir, handicraft shops, massage, restaurant, tennis and some gymnastics. A chain of tourism resorts is planned to cater for international tourists including seaside hotels and restaurants, especially an international standard golf court.
    Besides convalescence and bathing, tourists to Non Nuoc Beach can also combine their journeys with traveling the relic Marble Mountains, which boast some ancient pagodas and sacred monumental caves go around fine art stone handicraft villages right at the foot of the Mountains or go boating on Co Co River (Stork Neck River) to enjoy peacefulness of the Marble Mountains.
    If you, foreign tourists, are making tours to Vietnam, I myself, a Vietnamese, advise you to come to Danang, a city of central Vietnam where there is Non Nuoc beach. It's an ideal destination in Vietnam travel that you should not ignore.

    Re: Vietnam beach

    Dont forget Hoi An costal city located in the south central coast of Vietnam. A UNESCO world heritage site with lots of cool museum and ancient towns. You can check out the Long Life Hotel at Hoi An...it's in the city centre walking distance to the ancient town. We went there 3 years ago with 1 kid. At the resort you can rent a bicycle or motorbike and cruise along the beach. Of course we had to do some surfing and wifi is also available..... We chose the Deluxe garden view rooms facing the rice fields.

    We usually recommend this spot for "after birth" mummy's trip location!
    More info about Life Heritage Resort Hoi An and the current room rates here.

    Let me know if you need help or want more of the pics we took!
