Accordingly, the editors of Lonely Planet commented that although Vietnam is not as well-known for its beaches as its neighboring countries in Southeast Asia, with its 3,400 km coastline, this “S-shaped land” deserves more attention.
Among the top 10 “most beautiful beaches in Vietnam,” Mui Ne is ranked fourth. Lonely Planet reveals that Mui Ne is like the “gem” of Vietnam’s beach resorts and is the next attractive destination in Vietnam. In addition to its long stretches of white sandy beaches, Mũi Né is also a popular place for kiteboarding, as the wind conditions are very favorable from late October to April. Alongside Mũi Né, the first beach mentioned by Lonely Planet is An Bàng Beach (Hội An, Quảng Nam); followed by beaches in Phu Quoc (Kien Giang) and Nha Trang (Khanh Hoa). Other praised beaches include Con Đao, Ho Tram (Bà Rịa - Vũng Tàu), Doc Let (Khanh Hoa), and My Khe (Đa Nang). Lonely Planet, with its first publication in 1973 titled “Across Asia on the Cheap,” is known as the most successful travel guide publisher in the world. With over 145 million guidebooks sold, countless generations of travelers have relied on the practical and informative advice from Lonely Planet.
