Topping the list is Matira Beach in Tahiti in the southern Pacific.
“An Bang Beach has long been popular among locals for its gentle waves and soft white sand,” CNNgo said.
“Recently, it has picked up speed among expat tourists, which explains the Western-managed bars and restaurant along the waterfront. The bars are a great spot to mingle, but if you’re in a solitary mood, walk away from the main stretch and you’ll feel like you have the place to yourself.”
The four-kilometre beach is about 3km east of Hoi An.
Le Van Giang, head of the Hoi An people’s committee, said the city plans to pump more money into tourism projects.
