Unfortunately there are no white sand beach with crystal clear water within 2 hours of driving from Saigon. I'd recommend you go to Phu Quoc Island (1 hour flight), only $50 US each way. Check out this website:

www.virtourist.com/asia/vietnam/index.html

I haven't been to Phu Quoc myself but am in the process of planning a trip there after tumbling upon this website.

There are a few beach resorts near Saigon (Vung Tau, Long Hai) but these places are highly polluted and not recommended for westerners. I've been to Vung Tau myself years ago and it was dirty.

Hope that helps
