Beaches around To Chi Mien City

Hi. We are returning to Vietnam, for more of a beach and relax holiday rather than the tour we did last visit.

What beaches would you recommend in the south please? And how do you reach them from HCMC?

We loved Hoi An. Our usual holiday from Australia is Bali, where we get to meet the locals and try out local foods, and explore the culture. That is the type of holiday we enjoy, as well as swimming and snorkelling or surfing.

Please can I have any information on what to look up, so we can plan a holiday late March next year? Thank you in advance for any information.

I have done some research. That looks perfect. Is any beach there better than the other, or are all areas comparable within that town? (Meaning easy walk to dine out, cheap and interesting restaurants, etc) Thank you for your information. I help out on Bali site but am a real beginner here.

The back beach is cleaner for swimming although not as clean as Aussie beaches.

The front beach is better for evening walks along the promenade with the gentle cool breezes off the water.

I recommend the Sasavuta hotel because of its closeness to the front beach and bars and restaurants.

Aussie built and Aussie owned although not the original owner builder.
