BEACH OF THE WEEK - VIETNAM
Whale Island, Vietnam
Like the sound of diamond sands, opalescent water and tropical palms? What about waters brimming with lively aquatic life, including everything from puffer fish to (thankfully harmless) grey sharks? Yes? We thought so. All these treasures can be found on Whale Island – otherwise known as Ile de le Baleine or Hon Ong to the locals. Whale Island Beach, a little floating paradise, two hours north of Nha Trang, Vietnam, also boasts plenty of serene seclusion and a soundtrack provided by the many birds that reside in the coconut trees and nearby mangroves.
It’s the perfect beach escape for a romantic getaway from the busy but beautiful Vietnamese mainland and can only be reached by boat – how’s that for seclusion. So what are you waiting for?
WHEN: February to December for the best beachside weather
