Hoi An Beaches

Recommended for: all ages

“Get ready for a fin-tastic day at the beach in Hoi An with Kids! This charming town knows how to make a splash when it comes to beach fun! With two main beaches to choose from, An Bang and Cua Dai, you’re guaranteed to have a whale of a time. And don’t worry, parents, we’ve got you covered too!

At An Bang Beach, you can soak up the sun’s rays under the shade of a colorful umbrella, or take a leisurely stroll along the shoreline. And for our little beach bums, there are plenty of gentle waves for splashing and playing. But be aware, Cua Dai Beach has been affected by erosion, so we’ll have to get creative with our beach games.

But don’t let that stop us! The sandbags lining the shore might look like they’re doing their job to prevent erosion, but they’re also creating the perfect spot for our mini-me’s to play in the water. It’s like having our own personal water park right on the beach!

So grab your sunscreen, your swimsuits, and your sense of adventure, and get ready to make some waves with your little ones in Hoi An. With its beautiful coastline and fun beach activities, this Vietnamese town is the perfect spot for a family day out!”
