Vung Tau - back beach

Back beach is the eastern facing side of the Vung Tau peninsula and is the home of the vast majority of semi-budget guesthouses and mid-range resorts, with the latter tending to be spread out along the front. If it's a budget hotel in the 200,000-300,000 dong range you're looking for, then hunt around the southern end of the beach. Mini hotels line the streets, and most range from grubby to passable. Two of the better ones are mentioned below, Son Thinh and Thu Trang. Back Beach is only a five minute drive or a fifteen minute walk from the city centre. Thuy Van St runs the length of the beach, lined on both sides by resorts and restaurants. The southern end is a little more lively and public than the northern end, where resorts tend to take a chunk of the beach for themselves.

Vung Tau - front beach

Vung Tau's town centre is housed around Front Beach, which is more of a harbour than a beach. During the evening, the locals stream up and down the seafront dropping into the coffee shops or stopping to hangout on the quay wall. All western style entertainment is housed on this side of the peninsular, but options are a little more spartan.
