An Bang is one of a few beaches in Vietnam that are almost unspoilt by development. It offers clean blue sea with white sand, excellent restaurants and beach bars. There, tourists can enjoy not only the most fabulous island and mountain views but also the best seafood in Hoi An. Besides, tourists can visit and enjoy the beach all year round with its perfect climate. Located 4km away from the ancient town of Hoi An and 30km from Danang International Airport, An Bang Beach is probably one of the greatest places to visit in central Vietnam.

Best time to visit An Bang Beach Hoi An
Due to sea encroachment, famous Cua Dai Beach cannot receive tourists and An Bang rises to be the main beach in Hoi An. The little beach is crowded during summer months when Vietnamese go for vacation. People mostly enjoy sunrise swims and sunset beach barbecues while the beach is quite deserted during the day.
The dry season from March to September is perfect for tanning and beach lounging.
The wet season between October and February is suitable with surfing though sometimes there will be storms.
In An Bang there are just a few beach activities rather than lolling around in the sea but the prices for these activities such as surfing or beach lounging are quite cheap.
