The beaches of Vietnam don’t get enough credit, most likely due to the black and white images Westerners have seared into their consciousness of the war that happened half a century ago. With over 2000 miles of coastline (excluding islands), however, my birth country has plenty of beaches to spare, many of them as picturesque as you’ll find anywhere in the world.
I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the country twice since we left before I could walk and have been able to experience many of its beaches, at least in the central and southern regions, firsthand. And don’t forget the couple dozen islands and island groups I never had the opportunity to visit – with that much sand laying around, you’re bound to find a beach to your liking. If you don’t want to take my word for it, maybe these following images will do the trick.
