About Phu Yen

Phu Yen province plays second fiddle to Khanh Hoa to the south, which has the tourist magnet Nha Trang as its main draw. What many people don’t realise, however, is that this little district is home to 189 km of coastline and a number of beautiful, deserted beaches. And the best places to stay in Phu Yen are perfect destinations if you're looking for a Vietnamese beach break without the crowds.

Very little infrastructure exists, and the locals still make their living primarily off the sea. The fish praying festival, usually in March (though it depends on the lunar cycle), is the main annual event - a three day marathon of feasting and prayer to the sea Gods for a safe and profitable catch. In the heavily-forested interior of the province many villages specialise in weaving and pottery.

Our pick of the best places to stay in Phu Yen is perfect for those wishing to experience a spot of off the beaten track luxury.

  • The Bai Tram Hideaway Resort is just that: an exclusive hideaway. If splendid isolation is your thing then this resort will not disappoint. The hotel’s private bay is flanked by dramatic rock formations and set against a backdrop of gently rolling hills.

    Song Cau, Phu Yen

    Hideout in Vietnam’s riviera surrounded by the hills, old ruins and the crystal clear ocean. Freshly caught lobster is a highlight on the restaurant menu as well as rice grown in the resorts’ own paddy fields. An undiscovered paradise.

    Local markets  -  If you can drag yourself away from the beach soak up some local culture at the lobster farm or early morning food market.
    Great walks  -  Follow the trails up the surrounding hillside into the jungle. You'll be rewarded with phenomenal views.
    Cooking classes  -  Arrange a cooking class with the highly skilled in house chefs, seafood has never tasted so good!
    On the beach  -  One of the most stunning in Vietnam, and totally deserted!
