Another great one day trip from Saigon, Ho Coc beach is your best option for sun, sand & saltwater. Roughly a 110km ride, you should do it over two or three day to really enjoy the surroundings. It’s not one of the best beaches in Vietnam, but it makes for a nice escape from the city.

You’ll find 5-star beach resorts here, however, the backpacking motorcycle rider will be happy to know there is also cheap accommodation and even camping right near the beach. 

 

What To Do Nearby

  • Beach. Beach life will center around Ho Coc and nearby Ho Tram beaches. If you want the prime spots and clean, soft sand you’ll probably need to pay. Sadly the remote sections are part litter part beach.
  • Binh Chau Hot Springs. A quick motorbike ride from Ho Coc, these natural springs make for an excellent way to soak away the day. Come mid-week or be prepared for more people and less relaxation.
  • Activities. For free you can hike in the Jungle, for a hefty fee you can gamble in the casino. For those of you in the middle, you can find fishing and even golf!

Da Nang Beach

Just you and a little round fishing boat after dark overlooking Da Nang City.

Cua Dai Beach, Hoi An

Image:@hillars – Walk among the palms, sink your toes in the sand, and explore around Cua Dai Beach. If you’re looking to see what’s under the sea, strap on some scuba gear and head underwater. 

Cua Dai Beach, Hoi An.

A quick 30km ride when traveling from beach Da Nang you’ll find yourself on the quieter beaches of Hoi An. As an environmental side effect, each year erosion takes away more of the beach and along with that goes more of the tourism. Easy to find, this 8km stretch of soft sand starts on the Cua Dai road and continues on past large resorts, simple local eateries, and eye-sore beach-saving construction.

If you’re looking to relax you’ll be better off paying a fee to the beach resorts or renting a beach lounger to enjoy the prime spots. The free sections of the beach are more likely to be lined with sandbags and machinery working away in the background. 

 

What To Do Nearby

  • Cham Island. A quick boat trip will transport you to the eight tiny UNESCO World Heritage islands. You can stay in the sun, spend the night, or just explore the area by boat.
  • Scuba. A top spot for scuba diving & snorkeling in Vietnam, the best time for underwater views is March-September. It’ll make your life easier to know the best time to travel Vietnam, as the waters are impassible in the monsoon season from October-February.

Food & Drink

  • Hair Of The Dog Bar. If you’re looking to dance all night after happy hour in the old town, Hair Of The Dog is your unapologetic place to get drunk. As the name would suggest, drop by for breakfast too and start over!
  • The Golden Fish. Set in a little garden, you can escape the sun for some cocktails or signature fish dishes. Inside the restaurant is basic, but the dishes are delicious. Check out the 2-4-1 deals.
  •  3 Dragons. Games, live sports, beers, you get the idea. For pints with you pals or to meet other travelers out for a chill night, 3 Dragons have you covered.
