The Best Of Vietnam: Beaches Near Ho Chi Minh City

Southeast Asia is home to some of the best beaches in the world. Vietnam has its own share of gorgeous beaches for travellers and vacationers to pick from.

Located 50km away from the seacoast makes Ho Chi Minh City an ideal place to stay in if you’re looking to make frequent day trips to the beach. Here are the city’s best beaches to visit as recommended by Vietnam Online:

Ho Coc and Ho Tram Beach is located in Ba Ria Province, 175km to the South of Ho Chi Minh City. A recent star, Ho Coc provides tourists with the preserved serenity beside the basic comfort of wide-ranging accommodation quality. The beaches are renowned for the natural rocks that differentiate them from those in nearby addresses such as Vung Tau or Binh Chau.

One hour away from Ho Chi Minh City, Can Gio stands out as the most special in the list for its clamp farms and unique monkey island. Here, tourists can try collecting clamps on the vast fields and gain insights into the hard life of the locals. Though the beaches are not as scenery as their counterparts in other addresses in the list, Can Gio attracts people’s attention for the one and only monkey island in the country, where people can directly interact with the naughty friends who may irritate, but entertain you to no ends. Although the beach itself does not compare to the blue water, white sand of Nha Trang and Mui Ne, it is worth a visit if you feel like mingling in with nature.
