Beaches Near Dong Hoi

Hi, We are considering spending some time at the beaches near Dong Hoi after we explore the caves Phong Nha NP. What is it like in this area? Any recommendations? Thanks!

Dong Hoi is a lovely city, if we were to stay there again I think we would still stay in the city as there isn’t a lot of choice as far as places to eat go.

There are some small guesthouses/homestay’s near the beach but there are some huge resorts as well & if you read the reviews they are pretty much empty most of the time & there are lots of areas they won’t let you venture into.

The beach is lovely & fairly quiet while we were there.

The promenade in town is a hive of activity at night with small street food vendors selling their treats at sunset, it was a lovely atmosphere, it was within walking distance of where we stayed.

Worth a visit in my opinion.

Totally agree with ColVal, Dong Hoi is a great spot for a couple of days before or after the caves. I stayed on the beach northside at the Beachside Backpackers which was great for me. Nice folk there and it was a pretty good beach. Most of the other choices along that strip are so-so but plenty of options for accommodation in town plus the Sun Spa is the posh stand out of town - right on the beach across from the city centre.

Would not hesitate in going back to Dong Hoi for a visit.

We stayed at the Sun Spa.

It was great.

We did not go down into the water as it was cold in December, but the beach is lovely.

Would not hesitate to come back.

Cheers,

John
