One visitor to the beach in April wrote it was the best beach she has ever seen. “The bike ride was wonderful, through rice paddies and very, very flat. When we got to the beach at about 9.30am we were surprised at how uncrowded it was.”
She added that it seemed clean but there were lots of touts everywhere, as is common in Vietnam.
“We visited this lovely beach one day and it was simply amazing,” another wrote on TripAdvisor.
An Bang Beach was also voted among the Top 100 beaches in the world by CNN Summer Travel in 2013.
