Category: Culture   |   Jul 31, 2018

Start planning your tropical getaway now—these are the best island beaches in Thailand and Vietnam




VIETNAM

Phu Quoc

Simply the most beautiful island in Vietnam, Phu Quoc is sprinkled with picture-perfect white sand beaches and cloaked in dense, impenetrable jungle. Two most stunning popular beaches in Phu Quoc are Long beach and Bai Sao. Long Beach is sophisticated and Bai Sao simply irresistible.

Long Beach (Truong beach) is located along the western coast of Phu Quoc island. While sunbathers and swimmers find the waters of Long Beach extremely favourable to venture in, the beaches are also a hit among photographers and sunset lovers. Squid fishing, hiking, snorkelling, kayaking, jet skiing, stand-up paddle-boarding and biking around the beach town are some of the other fun activities enjoyed at Long Beach.

Star Beach (Bai Sao) locates in An Thới town of Phu Quoc island district with smooth white sand like cream with the length of 7 km. The seashore is covered with swaying palm trees and the big rocks are perfect for sunrise and sunset views. Star beach is a favourite destination of couple for honeymoon or families who like private and peaceful atmosphere to relax. The whole island is quite and the perfect place to hire a motorbike and enjoy freedom, peace, quiet and tranquillity.

How to get to Phu Quoc Island: You can take a flight there from Ho Chi Minh city about 1 hour.

Danang beach

With a pristine coral reef, palm-fringed shoreline, and some top-notch beach resorts, Danang Beach is definitely one of the most well-liked beaches in Vietnam.

The Beach is an excellent spot for water activities such as surfing, scuba diving, sunbathing, and swimming. Additionally, the area is known for its active expat scene.

There are several sections of the beach, some of which are My An, My Khe, Cua Doi and Non Nuoc, of which My An, My Khe, and Non Nuoc are collectively known as ‘beaches of Da Nang’.

How to get to Danang: Daily flights come in and out of Danang International Airport and connect the city with Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Nha Trang and Da Lat. One way flight costs between $60 and $90 depending on the destinations and how well in advance you book your ticket.

THAILAND

Railay Beach, Krabi

Clear blue waters, small islands on the horizon and majestic cliffs surround the small beach, is surrounded by limestone cliffs and is absolutely stunning. Aside from rock climbing, swimming and snorkeling, there’s not much else to do here but admire the gorgeous scenery, so bring a book and prepare to relax. Though Railay Beach is still much quieter and less developed than most popular Thailand beaches, there is more development here every year, and during high season it can feel crowded.

Phra Nang Beach – Krabi

Part of the Railay Peninsula, this broad beach is flanked by two huge cliffs. It’s incredibly remote, you’ll have to take a longtail boat here from Ao Nang, but it’s a great option. Visitors can rent sea kayaks, explore caves, or even take rock climbing lessons.

How to get to Krabi : From Bangkok, you can catch a bus, train, or plane to Krabi.

Maya Bay, Koh Phi Phi

Koh Phi Phi is an island you absolutely can’t miss, especially if you’re traveling alone. It has something for everyone, from water activities to a young crowd of partiers. Make sure to take a boat trip to Maya Bay on Koh Phi Phi Ley, where Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Beach was filmed. The bay is surrounded by cliffs on three sides, and has impossibly colorful underwater marine life. Try to visit early in the morning or after 17:00 to avoid the crowds.

How to get to Koh Phi Phi: There is no airport on Koh Phi Phi. The nearest airports are Krabi Airport and Phuket Airport. Ferries go to Koh Phi Phi from both Krabi and Phuket every day.
