About Quy Nhon

A coastal city in central Vietnam, Quy Nhon is the main hub of Binh Dinh Province. Although often overlooked in favour of classic seaside destinations like Nha Trang or Da Nang, it’s a hugely beautiful part of the country, with miles of unspoilt golden sands on the mainland and nearby islands. Home to an increasing number of attractive hotels and resorts, the area has grown in popularity in recent years, particularly with families. Our pick of the best places to stay in Quy Nhon highlights two fantastic family escapes.

Quy Nhon is a bustling Vietnamese city, and well worth a wander. Feast on delicious dishes at streetside stalls, visit the atmospheric Long Khanh Pagoda or admire the ultra-modern Quy Nhon Cathedral before clambering up Nui Vung Cha Mountain for panoramic views of the city and the sea. For a sense of the region’s rich cultural past, head beyond the city centre to the hilltop Ong Nui Temple, Thien Hung Pagoda with its peaceful lily ponds, or the ancient Thap Doi.

A fishing hub for centuries, Quy Nhon has long relied on the bounty of the ocean. Rise early to see the fishermen bringing in their haul at glittering Bai Xep Beach, take a long walk on Quy Hoa Beach, or marvel at striking sunsets from craggy Eo Gio. Hop aboard a brightly painted boat to journey across to lovely Hon Koh, Ky Co or Cu Lao Xanh, three of the idyllic islands which dot the nearby waters. You’ll find ample opportunity to feast on fresh seafood, bask in the sunshine, kayak or sail. Speak to the teams at the best places to stay in Quy Nhon to arrange memorable days out!
