Vietnam and the world top 1 beaches

With half of the Vietnam territory covered by ocean. It is not surprising that it is also endowed with many beautiful islands. Setting sail or flight to one of Vietnam’s islands provides the perfect way to escape the hustle. And bustle of the mainland. Indeed, there is something about being on an island, being cut off from civilisation that allows one to reconnect with themselves. With each other, and with nature. From the far-flung exclusivity of the Con Dao archipelago, to the limestone cliffs and bays of Cat Ba island. Rr the laid back charm of Phu Quoc and the Cham islands. Heading off into Vietnam’s wide open sea can be one of the best decisions one can make in Vietnam.

 

CHAM ISLANDS
Perched off the Hoi An coast and visible from land are the mountainous cu lao Cham, or Cham islands. The islands are famous locally for their prized swallow nests that make the popular delicacy bird’s nest soup.

And for which diners have been known to pay up to US$2500 per kilo. Also a World Biosphere Reserve, the white sand encrusted islands are known as being a “kingdom of aquatic animals”. And unsurprisingly popular with snorkellers and divers who come to witness the area’s coral and shoals of colourful fish. Half-day and overnight trips are easily arranged from Hoi An. With the option of a cultural home-stay or beach camping.

 

CAT BA ISLAND
This rugged island of limestone cliffs, deep valleys, mountain spires and lush jungle and has the feel of being straight out of Jurassic Park. Unlike many of the other islands in the bay, Cat Ba has a resident population contained in a few fishing villages and town. And numerous sandy beaches, with the most popular being the Cat Co. With almost half of the island classified as a National Park, there are lakes, waterfalls and grottoes in spectacular limestone hills to be found. A trek along a mountain trail also gives the visitor the opportunity to meet some of the Park’s curious mix of wildlife. Including the endangered golden-headed langur, wild boar, deer, squirrels and hedgehog.

 

LY SON ISLAND
Ly Son island in Quang Ngai province, previously known as Re island, is 25km off the shore. Reaching Ly Son, visitors will catch sight of a little island with 5 high mountains rising above the vast sea which are lushly forested and encircled by vibrant houses at the foot.

CON DAO ARCHIPELAGO
Being the most isolated of all Vietnam’s islands lends the Con Dao archipelago an exclusivity few visitors or locals alike can claim to have experienced. Situated in the South of Vietnam about 50 kilometres off the south-eastern coast of Vietnam. Con Dao is a group of 16 mountainous sand-fringed islands and islets. Here diving is among the best in Vietnam with 1,300 species of sea life in the area. Including rare dugongs and sea turtles as well as beautiful coral reefs. Other options for things to do include taking a rainforest walk on Con Son. Hiring a boat and cruising the nearby islands, or renting a motorbike and finding your own piece of paradise.

 

PHU QUOC ISLAND
Surrounded by more than 40 kilometres of white sand beaches, warm tropical water in every shade of green, quaint fishing villages, and a kaleidoscope of off-shore coral. A visit to Phu Quoc is high on the agenda of anyone after that perfect Vietnam tropical island holiday. While Phu Quoc has a range of accommodation from backpacker hotels to upmarket hotels. Development on the island is restricted by its national park which has helped to ensure the island retains much of its laid back charm.

Circumnavigate the island on a motorbike stopping at its picturesque bays and beaches, explore the coast by kayak or scuba dive its reefs. Or for those less actively inclined, simply fill your day relaxing on the beach with your favourite book.
