Nha Trang .
Are you looking for good infrastructure and beach vacations? Then the best resort to go on vacation in Vietnam is Nha Trang. The beaches are well maintained and equipped, although not paradise: almost everywhere the sand is yellow and coarse, and the bottom is uneven. Sometimes there are strong waves, and holidaymakers with children go where there are shallows and beautiful beaches with white sand (Paragon, Zoklet, etc. – read more about the best beaches in Nha Trang).
Когда ехать. Лучше всего отдыхать в Нячанге весной и летом . С октября начинается сезон дождей — дуют сильные ветры, и море волнуется. Зимой бывает некомфортно из-за волн, но они есть не всегда. Мы отдыхали именно зимой — это прекрасное время для экскурсий и поездок по окрестностям! Узнайте о погоде в Нячанге зимой >>
Nha Trang city beach. Rice fields on the road to Yang Bay Park on the outskirts of Nha Trang.
Cam Ranh is a small seaside village located in the bay of the same name. The most famous beach is Bai Zai, here often comes from neighboring Nha Trang.
The beach is only 30 meters wide, but very long, with fine sand and a gentle entrance. There are restaurants and hotels on the beach, you can rent a deck chair with an umbrella and water skiing.
When to go. The climate is the same as in Nha Trang, so come in spring and summer.

Where to go in Vietnam if you want a quiet beach vacation? Phu Quoc Island is a quiet resort, a center of diving and snorkeling. Beautiful beaches, interesting underwater world, the clearest water and a warm climate. The infrastructure is actively developing, but there is no nightlife, and there are few attractions. Although we know a few secret places that will not leave you indifferent.
Когда ехать. Сезон длится с ноября по март , когда не слишком жарко. Самые знойные месяцы — с апреля по июнь, а с июля по сентябрь льют дожди. Мы прожили на Фукуоке весь январь и встретили там Новый год — было солнечно и без осадков. Узнайте про погоду на Фукуоке >>
Mui Ne and Phan Thiet.
The narrow 17-kilometer resort area between Phan Thiet and the fishing village of Mui Ne is simply called Mui Ne by everyone. This is a jumble of hotels, souvenir shops, bokeh (seafood cafes), travel agencies and pharmacies. Most hotels are located on the first line. The best beaches are occupied by expensive hotels, the sites are worse – the budget. The beaches of Mui Ne we did not like – they are mostly dirty. Everywhere shallow water and waves, so you can not swim. But there are interesting attractions in the area: the red and white dunes, the Fairy Creek.
When to go. There are no strong climatic swings here, as in the northern resorts of Vietnam. However, the best time to vacation is during the dry period – from November to April . Strong winds blow most of the time, so this place is loved by kiters and surfers. They prefer to vacation from January to March, when the sea has high waves. From April to late fall, the sea is a little calmer.
Among Russians this resort in Vietnam is almost unknown (everyone goes to Nha Trang, Mui Ne and Phu Quoc), the Vietnamese rest here. The city is large and modern, with spacious streets and not too dense traffic, so it is convenient to learn to ride a bike.
The best beaches in Da Nang with white sand and shallow entrance to the sea are Bac Mi An and Mi Khe. Entrance is free, infrastructure is quite developed. The coastline is wide and long, you can collect a lot of beautiful shells. Near Da Nang there are beautiful Marble Mountains.
A small disadvantage is the remoteness of the center from the tourist area. There are no big supermarkets on the coast. There are no city buses, you have to go to the center by bike or cab.
When to go. The high season is short – the best time to relax is from April to June, when it’s warm enough, and the sea is low waves. From summer to the end of the year it rains, and in winter the winds are rampant. We vacationed in Da Nang in winter: the city and the beach were deserted, but it has its own charm. There was a strong wind, big waves on the sea, red flags on the beaches, and sometimes it drizzled with rain. In low season, almost all the cafes in the tourist area are closed, and sometimes it’s not easy to find inexpensive food: the Vietnamese, seeing the lone tourists, slamming prices.
If you’re looking for the best place to stay in Vietnam with children, consider Hoi An – the sea entrance there is gentle. The best beach is An Bang (the other one, Cua Dai, has been destroyed by marine erosion and is being restored). Beaches with fine sand and light colored sand in some places with developed infrastructure. Parking is not free.
In Hoi An beautiful old architecture. From the city is convenient to visit the Marble Mountains in Da Nang – we, for example, went there by bicycle (rent costs only $ 1 day).
On the downside, Hoi An is on the river, and to the nearest beach you have to drive several kilometers. Tourists prefer to live near the Old Town, although you can also settle by the sea.
When to go. The best time is from February to May. In the fall, hurricanes rage and flooding occurs.
Beach recreation in Vietnam is also possible in the bay of the same name in the city of Halong. The beaches on the islets are mostly imported sand and the water is often muddy, but most tourists come here to admire the wonder islands.
There’s not much to do in Halong town itself, except stroll along the beautiful promenade with gorgeous views of the bay, watch the inhabitants of floating villages, enjoy sunsets and climb Mount Bai Tu Poets, which offers a panorama of the city and the bay.
When to go. The best time for excursions is from December to the end of May, when it is dry and warm, for beach holidays – in April, May, September and October. Rainy season – from June to September. We lived in Halong in January, and, although the sun was often warm, cold wind prevented the thought of a beach vacation.
A picturesque green island located in Halong Bay, the largest in the archipelago. The beaches are mostly unassuming with yellowish-brown sand, but clean, without trash and algae. The main attractions for tourists at the resort are cruises around the islands and excursions to the local national park.
When to go. In the summer it is stormy on Catba, so it is better to vacation in the fall .
This is a small seaside town with a densely built coastline and oil production facilities. The town has beaches – narrow, with muddy and frothy water because of its proximity to the Mekong and strong winds.
The infrastructure is developed: there are restaurants, hotels, entertainment, stores. However, even the locals prefer Long Hai or Mui Ne, where the beaches are better. If you need exactly a good beach vacation, it is better to go to popular resorts in Vietnam: Phu Quoc, Nha Trang, Mui Ne or Da Nang.
When to go. From November to April. High waves rise in the winter, which kiteboarders love. The rainy season is from May to October.

The island is good for secluded holidays and ecotourism, it is called the best resort in Vietnam for diving. There are unique species of plants and animals, such as sea cows and green turtles.
Tourist infrastructure is underdeveloped, there are no major shopping centers and few hotels. The island itself is rocky, most of the coast – the steep shores. There are several sandy beaches at the east end of the island, all sparsely populated and semi-wild.
When to go. The ideal time for a beach holiday in Con Dao is from December to April, for diving – from February to July.
