Vietnam has glorious beaches. The most famous is probably China Beach, ironcially made famous by a TV show based on reality. This beach just out of Da Nang was the place that American GIs would R&R during the war. The US had a large airbase and hospital here. A little further north is a picturesque beach and home to Vietnamese sufferers of Leprosy. South is Nha Trang. We had so much fun here! Wide sandy beaches dotted with coconut trees. We swam, snorkelled, climbed waterfalls, ate seafood straight out of the sea and just sat back and admired the glorious view.
The beaches of Vietnam pretty much run the length of the country. Go check them out!
