An Bang Beach

Relatively untouched by development, unlike many of the beaches around Hoi An, An Bang Beach has a chill vibe even with its plethora of amenities, which includes shops, ATMs, and even pharmacies.

Though it doesn’t seem possible given its four-kilometre (3-mile) length, An Bang Beach can get busy with local families towards evening and on the weekends, when locals can outnumbers tourists by two to one.

That said, there’s a reason for its popularity. In addition to fine tropical sands, the average water temperature here is a balmy 25°C (80°F), meaning there’s no excuse for not swimming! Surfing and stand-up paddleboarding are also popular, with equipment for rent and even the chance to grab a couple of lessons from the beachside stores.

If that’s got you eager to visit, An Bang Beach is around three kilometres (2 miles) north of Hoi An, making it a five minute taxi ride away.
