Located in southern Kien Giang province, Phu Quoc is frequently touted one of Vietnam’s most beautiful islands and its renowned Bai Dai Beach is blissfully secluded with white sands and expansive vitas stretching to the horizon, the website said.

Phu Quoc island district is well-connected with international airports, home to luxurious resorts and foreign visitors can enjoy 30 day visa-free stay on this island. 

Phu Quoc is the largest Vietnamese island with a total area of 574 square kilometres and a permanent population of approximately 85,000. In 2006, it was recognised as a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.

In the first five months of this year, the island welcomed nearly 858,000 arrivals, more than 47 percent of the yearly target, up 21 percent from the same period last year. The figure includes nearly 181,000 international tourists, or 60 percent of the yearly target, up 30 percent year on year.

Meanwhile, Mui Ne beach in the central province of Binh Thuan is famous for adventurous activities, particularly wind-surfing and kite-surfing, due to its warm temperature and clear skies.  It also consists of massive sand dunes, suitable for activities such as sand-boarding.

Mui Ne boasts many attractive landscapes such as Hon Rom, Hon Lao Cau and Bai Rang. Coming to this beach, travellers also have the chance to witness the daily life of fishermen in a humble fishing village.

Other beaches on the list by CNN Travel are Yunokawa (Hakodata, Japan), Patnem Beach (Goa, India), Tanjung Rhu (Langkawi, Malaysia), Hikkaduwa (Sri Lanka), among others.
