Ranking Central Viet Nam best beach cities
Here are some of the best that Viet Nam has to offer, its beaches and long coastline stretching from the North to South. Almost all of the best tropical beaches that are worth visiting are located in the vicinity of these cities. Not only that, these cities also have the nightlife, international or local restaurants, architectures and an easy going lifestyle that are so sought after by retirees and expats. The list will go from the most quiet to the most vibrant and my favorite city.
Around 165 km from Ho Chi Minh City, this town has recently been open and popular in the public. The beaches are really nice, white sand and they still have a pristine aura. The town where the local live don't really have much to do if you ventured out of the tourist beaches.
From La Gi you can travel southward to Vung Tau, where the nightlife and cuisines are much more interesting.

The same quiet life as La Gi, Phu Yen beaches are a touch more serene than LaGi, where tourism is less vibrant. I really like Phu Yen with its quiet beaches. One of the most popular beaches in Phu Yen is Hon Yen Beach, which is popular for its stunning scenery, clear blue waters, and white sand. Expats in Hon Yen Beach can enjoy various activities such as swimming, sunbathing, and fishing, or simply relax and soak up the natural beauty of the area.
Another popular destination for expats in Phu Yen is Bai Xep Beach, known for its peaceful atmosphere, pristine environment, and long stretch of white sand. The nearby Cu Lao Mai Nha Beach is a must-visit for those seeking rugged coastline and hidden coves, while Wing Chun Dai Beach is perfect for those seeking a secluded escape.
Bai Mon Beach and Bai Goc Beach are both popular spots for photographers, families and beach enthusiasts. Tuy Hoa Beach, with its long coastline and calm waters, is ideal for families, while Bai Om Beach – Bai Rang is famous for its crystal-clear waters and lush vegetation. Long Thuy Beach and Bai Bang Beach are both sought-after by expats for their scenic beauty and peaceful atmosphere, making them perfect destinations for a relaxing beach holiday in Phu Yen.

Top of the list is Nha Trang, located just 380km from Saigon, is a city that offers a more leisurely pace of life compared to bustling cities like Ho Chi Minh and Da Nang. I've found some great spot for coffee, beers and banh mi in Nha Trang.
Although it may have a less developed business culture and fewer flight connections, Nha Trang more than makes up for it with its beautiful beaches and relaxed atmosphere. Expats in Nha Trang will enjoy the city's vibrant and lively street life, with a range of local markets, shops, and restaurants to explore.
