Jungle Beach in Vietnam – A hidden Paradise

By on 20. September 2017

Jungle Beach in Vietnam is a very secluded and pretty non touristic place. It’s the perfect getaway for people, who just want to hang out and enjoy a little bit of peace and harmony. This dream beach is almost completely untouched. You won’t find many people except of a small amount of backpackers, who might have heard of it from other lucky ones.

 

 

Jungle Beach in Vietnam is definitely not an everyday destination. Not many tourists or backpackers even know this place. I got lucky to visit it, because I got told of it by a motorbike salesman from the UK, who I bought my bike from before I started my motorcycle trip through whole Vietnam. He gave me an awesome route and Jungle Beach in Vietnam was one spectecular spot to have a look at.

This place is special in a way, which is hard to explain. It feels like you have reached the end of Vietnam and can’t go any further. The only thing you can do is to settle down, relax and enjoy yourself.

Jungle Beach in Vietnam – General information

Like almost always, I want to give you some general information about this place. Jungle Beach in Vietnam belongs to a tiny village with a small amount of inhabitants. It’s located exactly at the and of a peninsula. It’s basically one separate part of a bigger beach, which lies in a mini bay. Really beautiful!




Weather

The weather on the southeastern coastline is pretty similar to the weather in Vung Tau or Mui Ne for example. You will find sunny conditions most of the time. Jungle Beach in Vietnam belongs to the subtropical area, which is why you find wet and dry seasons. The wet season is from May to November. The rest is dry season. Make sure to go there in dry season. It’s just way more pleasant.

Jungle Beach in Vietnam with good weather

The temperature sets between 20°C – 36°C all year long. There is no real summer or winter. Therefore the climate can be quite different to most other places in Southeast Asia. It will gonna be windy a lot of times, because of the ocean’s breezes, which blow quite strong from the South Chinese Ocean.

How to get there

To get to Jungle Beach in Vietnam is not that easy in my opinion. You can take a bus or a taxi, but I would recommend you to go by scooter or motorbike.

You can’t get there by ship even though it’s on the coast. Flying is no option either, because there is no airport nearby. The closest one is south of Nha Trang, but still quite a bit away. From Nha Trang you would have to take another vehicle again. It’s quite a big effort.

Because Jungle Beach in Vietnam lies at the end of a peninsula, you drive through some smaller villages to get there. The the best way for not getting stuck somewhere is a motorbike. Trust me! 🙂

How to get around

Once you have arrived at Jungle Beach in Vietnam, it’s easy to get around. Everything is walking distance pretty much and if it’s not, just take a Tuk Tuk, a scooter or your own motorbike.

I’d say anyway, that you won’t really want to have a look around anyway, because the beach is just to pretty to get away from it 😉

Food

Food at Jungle Beach in Vietnam is the same as always. You’ll get great freshly cooked meals from organic cultivation. Besides that, I would recommend you to try seafood. The products you get by the coast are just incredibly delicious and very cheap in comparison.

Short tip: Try the local mushles and fish. They are so good!

Food in Vietnam is so good

Accommodation

You have two options on accommodation at Jungle Beach in Vietnam. Basically you can choose from:

  • Hostels
  • Small hotels

The hotels in the area are not famous or high standard ones. Everything is pretty basic, which is quite cool in my opinion and it adds to the unique vibe.

Where I stayed at Jungle Beach in Vietnam

A great hostel

This is why I’d recommend you to go to a hostel anyway. Some hostels claim to be more of a hotel, but in core they are not.

Hostels at Jungle Beach in Vietnam have an amazing vibe – So cool!

I have been to Jungle Beach Vietnam Hostel, which I would always recommend. The owner (an old Canadian dude) is quite sympathetic. The hostel itself is also really cool. You’ll find a lot of bamboo huts next to the beach, so that you’ll hear the sounds of the ocean while you sleep and when you wake up. Absolutely brilliant!

Costs

Generally Jungle Beach in Vietnam is not very expensive. You can live on 3$ – 10$ for food and beverages per day on an average. Accommodation costs vary. If you want to stay at the same place where I have stayed at, you pay 20$ per night, but food is included for the whole day. It’s a higher price, compared to most other accommodation for backpackers in Vietnam, but it’s worth it. Transportation costs are pretty low anyway. To get from Ho Chi Minh to Nha Trang, which is very close to Jungle Beach, costs 220.000 VTD (11$). That’s insanly cheap, if you think about the covered distance, right? 🙂

Authentic accommodation right next to the beach

Overall you can easily live on less than 25$ per day. When I stayed somewhere, I spent less than 15$ per day inlcuding accommodation. Sometimes even less than 10$. This does not include activities. You have to calculate them additionally.

Costs are very low in comparison to western countries

Jungle Beach in Vietnam – Highlights & What to do

Jungle Beach in Vietnam does not have as much to do as other paradisaic places like Mui Ne or Koh Tao in Thailand for example. But there are still some really cool things to check out and highlights to see.

Beach time

The first thing to mention at Jungle Beach in Vietnam is obviously spending time at one of the most remote beaches in the whole country. Perfect sand, almost no tourists, a pretty ocean colour and magical sunsets. Sometimes you can even see some fireflies when it gets dark.

An amazing beach

Sunsets to always remember

Because this beach is so empty, it makes you feel like you have paradise all for your own. If you want to have some fun, you can go for a swim in the ocean. The rough sea is very windy, which results in bigger waves (not to big 😉 ).

An insanly remote place

Here and there you will find some loungers with and without sun protection. Everything is very basic and raw, which is pretty cool. A perfect place to get lost!

Short tip: Try out the hammocks. They’ll give you that little extra tropical feeling when you relax at the beach 😉

Mountain trail

The mountain is more of a bigger hill. It doesn’t take to long to get up there. But it’s also not to short. The view you get is definitely worth the walk. You can look quite far and see how the landscape and the bay are shaped. The best spot in the whole area to take some good pictures – postcard style!

Salt fields & Coastal walks

About 25 km away you can also check out some salt fields. You should rent a scooter, if you don’t have your own motorbike. Otherwise it will not be that easy to get there.

A coastal walk is something you should put on your list of things to do at Jungle Beach in Vietnam as well. You won’t find many coastlines in this country, which are that secluded. Especially for couples or people on their honeymoon this is a nice thing to do.

Walk along the coastline – You won’t get enough of it

Waterfalls

A decent walk away from Jungle Beach in Vietnam you will find a pretty waterfall. Along the way you will see some small streams with greenish water, which is crystal clear. So lovely!

Once you have reached the waterfall you can just chill out and enjoy the untouched natural enviroment or have some fun/ action by jumping off the waterfall. You don’t need to worry. The water is deep enough. Make sure not to go back to late, because it will not be that easy to find your way back in the dark.

Snorkeling, campfire & other activities

Jungle Beach in Vietnam is also a good place to go snorkeling. You can explore the whole bay or also go to a couple other places along the peninsula. I would not say it’s the most fascinating underwater world I have ever seen, but it is quite nice. You’ll like it 🙂

Besides that, Jungle Beach in Vietnam is the perfect spot for sports like volleyball, beach soocer or any other beach activity. It’s also possible to go kitesurfing or driving a Jet Ski.

Jungle Beach in Vietnam has many activities to do

At night you can almost always sit down at a set up bonfire by the beach with some nice barbecues stations on the side. It’s a good opportunity to get in contact with the locals. People in this area are so so friendly and even more relaxed, because they don’t have anything to do with the mass tourism industry. Very enjoyable!

Jungle Beach in Vietnam – What I have learned

Guys, what I have leared from Jungle Beach in Vietnam is quite a nice lesson. Every time I go somewhere new, I learn a lot of travel lessons anyway. When I was there, I was quite nervous all the time, because I wanted to travel through the whole country quickly (Visa reasons) and my motorcycle broke down for the first time. An old Vietnamese dude help me to get to the hostel where they could help me to fix the broken “Fancy Nancy”.

Unfortunately this took almost 3 days, because at places like Jungle Beach in Vietnam, everything just takes a little longer. That’s just how it is. You can’t do anything about it. I pressured the hostel owner a little to fix my bike faster, but his only response was that, I should calm down, and relax for a little while. And you know what? He was exactly right…

He was right – You just need to relax sometimes

Great vibes at Jungle Beach in Vietnam

Always remember

Sometimes it’s very important in life to push the pause button. This needs to happen on a regular bases. I know our society tells us to always be accessable and in action all the time. If you are not moving, someone will overtake you, right?





In my opinion this is the truth, BUT you also need to relax sometimes in order to keep moving forward again. It’s just not possible to be at 100% all the time. And anyone, who says that, is lying. Even very successful business people or people, who achieved many great things (like climbing Mt Everest), need their break once in a while. Always remember:

In order to keep pushing, you need to have breaks

Why? Because otherwise you’ll gas out and everything in life is always a marathon, not a sprint. Plus, it’s just good for our soul sometimes… 😉

  • One of the best sunrises on the planet in the middle of the red desert 🌅
.
This sunrise taught me something, that I'll keep with me forever
.
It amazes me how certain moments just stick with you for the rest of your life
.
These particular moments just become one of your greatest memories instantly
.
Most of the time, it's the spontaneous decisions you make, that end up to be one of the greatest 😀
.
Seeing the sunrise at Ayers Rock was exactly a decision like that
.
I did not really plan to visit Australia's centre at all when I was there, but it was completely right that I did
.
Otherwise I would have not made such a fantastic memory
.
And only because of one thing: because I was spontaneous and stepped out of my comfort zone 💪
.
I am very grateful for the small lesson that sometimes "just going for it" ultimately leads to situations that you never forget ⏳

  • How crazy and fascinating at the same time is the Dubai at night? 😲😍🌇
.
This city is the existing proof that there are always two sides of a medal. A positive and a negative .
On the one hand Dubai is the ultimate symbol of what humanity is capable of. A small city built to one of the most impressive metropoles in the world within only 70 years ⏳
.
On the other hand, isn't it ironic how much money has been spent only to built this city right in the desert. There is no point in doing that
.
To me, if you think about all the poverty in the world, this just seems ridiculous. There is no other way to describe it
.
But then again, there is just no doubt that a view like this can fascinate me and many other people to the deepest core 👌
.
This list of pros and cons could go on for ages... ⏰
.
What a great combination Dubai is to show that everything just always depends on the way you see things
.
TELL ME: What's a simple lesson YOU have learned from traveling? 😄

  • Exploring the old conifer forests of southern Sweden...🌲🌳

Sweden is such a wonderful country with lots of great things to see

Most of the time, the places that noone really goes to are the ones that are most fun and exciting to explore, right?
.
TELL ME: What's the most remote place you have ever been to??? 😄 .

  • Golden sunset at Twin Beach in El Nido 🌅🌄
.
I don't know what it exactly is, but there is something magical about a great sunset
.
Maybe it's the fact that is symbolises the end of a day. But there never really is an end to it, because a couple hours later, once we wake up, we have the chance again to do something great with our lifes 💪
.
Each and every single day we can decide how we want to spend the day, what goals we work towards to and ultimately what kind of value we bring to other people 👍
.
It's always only up to ourselfs, if we are happy at the end of the day during sunset
.
Never forget, we all have a choice. Always❗

  • Strolling through paradise... 😍👌🌴
.
Some places on our planet are just crazy beautiful .
It's almost impossible to describe the beauty and the feeling that you get when you walk around at beaches like this one 🌞
.
I could not say which beach of all the ones I have seen so far would be the best one, but all the beaches in El Nido are definitely top ranked 🌏
.
TELL ME: Where did you really feel lost (in a good way 😉) the last time???
