What are waiting for you?
Famous Islands in Vietnam for Relaxing and Resting
Phu Quoc is definitely a must-go destination in Vietnam, especially if you are looking to spend some peace and quiet next to the sea. The island has one of the most stunning beach sceneries you will ever see: turquoise water, crispy waves, and pure, soft, white sand. A walk and bathe in one of Phu Quoc beaches will rid you of any worries.
But beaches are not the only punch Phu Quoc packs. The island is also home to a stunning forest bed and endless mountain ranges, so your eyes will always have a delicious feast staring out the window. When you are bored at merely looking, you can always bring yourself to the Phu Quoc National Park for a hike into the soothing wilderness.
The national park takes up nearly half the island, so running out of places to explore is never really an option for travelers. When you actually get through the forest and have a view down from the mountain tops, you will be rewarded with the sight of luscious jungles and blue sea surrounding you!
Whatever you do, be sure not to miss this wonderful island!
Con Dao – or sometimes referred to as Con Island – is an island situated near the southern coast of Vietnam. It used to be a ground for prison and war. But now Con Dao stands proudly as one of Vietnam’s most famous culture memorial sites as well as one of the best tourist’s beach gatherings!
The Con Dao museum is what the island is known for. It holds the island’s dark past of the time when French colonizers turned it into a prison site. But if you are not interested in history, the museum should provide you with a very detailed description of the island’s biodiversity in air-conditioned chambers!
Additionally, as we have spoken of it before, Con Dao holds many hidden gems for beachgoers as well. Bai Nhat beach is the most popular on the island for tourists to have simple relaxing fun in the waters and under the sun. The water is fresh and clear, making for the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.
If you want a different type of experience on beaches, we suggest you visit An Hai Beach. Arriving at the beach at around 5:00-6:30 in the morning will reward you with an absolutely stunning sunrise and an entry into the fresh seafood market of the local people. Trust us that this is going to be a truly surreal experience to include in your Vietnam vacation packages!
If you have the slightest idea how beautiful Hoi An is, you will be glad to know that Cham Island is part of the wondrous citadel site. Cham Island has numerous outstanding beaches for you to visit and enjoy for sure, but it is safe to say that beaches are not the key reason why people are flooding into the area.
The Cu Lao Cham Marine Park is what makes the island special as it attracts hundreds to thousands of divers every year. The facility will provide you with an unforgettable experience among the coral reefs and an exquisite look into the sealife of Vietnam. Perhaps, you will find peace somewhere among the colorful coral sites!
Cat Ba is a location for those who fall in love with Ha Long Bay but dread the crowd over there. The island provides you with the same type of experience: tranquility, relaxation, stunning views, and cool breezes, without the tourists trampling over one another for a snap of the scenery!
The first thing you should go and see while you are in Cat Ba is definitely the Cat Ba National Park for a healthy hike into the woods. Vietnam has one of the unique wildlife and forest beds in Southeast Asia, so you will not want to miss out on flora and fauna.
Cat Ba’s multiple beaches – conveniently named Cat Ba 1, 2, 3 – are also great resort options for those who want to spend some nice peace and quiet. These are public beaches, but that does not mean they are any less pleasing to the eye and heart of their visitors.
Another scenic place that you might catch fewer people visiting is the Butterfly Valley, right at the center of the island. You will not catch swarms of flutters around the area, but the valley is definitely stunning regardless. The hiking route to the valley itself is also a beauty for your eyes to feast on and take in!
The Ly Son island is home to hundreds of serene beaches, temples, and garlic farms for you to come to and explore! It is a treat among Quang Ngai province as the combination between urban and rural gives you a unique sense of belonging and spiritual peace.
The area is also very famous for its various river and sea-related festivals, such as the Tu Linh Boat Racing Festival (held by the local people on the 4th – 8th day of the 1st Lunar month). That makes Ly Son the perfect getaway from the rush of daily life, for you to catch some breaths during your vacation!
Vietnam’s seascape is home to many lively and attractive islands for you to rest your heart in, so be sure not to miss out on any of the locations we mention on this list of Vietnam vacation packages! You will not regret your visits, and you will leave the country feeling better than ever before!
