Long HaiVietnam

Surrounded by superb beaches, mountain temples and lush forest, this sleepy village is one of Vietnam’s most attractive coastal resort areas. 

Watch the fishermen bringing in the daily catch, stroll along the soft sand, dip your toes in the ocean, discover hidden caves and stunning mountain views or enjoy a bit of luxury at a coastal resort when you idyllic Long Hai.

Originally a small fishing village, Long Hai has gained a reputation as one of the most idyllic coastal retreats in Vietnam. The area’s tranquil beaches and dry microclimate were even enough to convince the last emperor of Vietnam to build a private residence here. Visit for a few days to understand what he found appealing.

Spend long, lazy days relaxing at Long Hai’s pristine beaches. The warm waters are great for swimming. Back on land, hotels rent out sun loungers and umbrellas. Buy cold drinks and snacks from the resort bars. Take a stroll to discover other parts of the beach. You don’t have to walk far from town before the beach begins to feel like your own personal spot of bliss.

Hike up into the lush green mountains. This area of scenic trails was used as a Viet Cong lookout during the Vietnam War. Explore along the path to find memorial shrines built to honor former soldiers as well as a fascinating network of caves. Glimpses through the trees provide great views down the coast.

Look for the vast Dinh Co Temple, hidden by the mountains. This was built to honor a young girl whose body washed up on the beach over 200 years ago. Locals see her as a goddess, sent to protect the town.

For your evening meal, find a great restaurant, either in town or at one of the beachside resorts. Freshly caught fish done in tasty Vietnamese sauce is popular on every menu, although you’ll find a range of international options as well.

Long Hai is located about 9 miles (15 kilometers) from Vung Tau. Take a taxi which is cheap and reliable. Public buses do run between the two places as well.
