Cua Dai beach in the central province of Quang Nam was recently named the world’s most affordable beach by the Netherlands’s tourism website travelbird.nl.
In late July, the website released a list of 250 of the world’s most iconic beaches, in which the Vietnamese holiday spot was identified as the go-to destination for penny pinching beach-lovers.
It found a day out at Cua Dai, near the UNESCO World Heritage city of Hoi An, cost holiday-makers an average of 13.54 USD, including lunch, a beer, a bottle of water, ice cream and sunscreen.
The world’s most expensive beach was in French Polynesia, with a day at Maui Beach in Tahiti costing 60.13 USD.
Cua Dai beach, which is 7.6km long and about 5km from Hoi An’s old quarter, is a popular destination for tourists visiting the ancient city.
