Photo of Jungle Beach
If you dream of living in an ultra-basic shack walking distance to the beach, Jungle Beach is your ticket. Go to this long established backpacker hang out if you want a relaxed vibe, chill-out beach time and herbal medicine. Don’t, however, have high expectations for accommodation. Actually, set your bar really low, then maybe you will be okay with parting with 600,000 VND per person for a hut with a bed, mosquito net, fan and three communal meals. If you’re a couple travelling, that’s US$55 per day.

The overpriced shelters range from rattan-walled structures divided up into rooms (some with private bathroom) in the garden, or sheds closer to the beach. These sheds have a roof, a bed and a roll-down blind in front. The place is littered with places to relax, from bamboo sunshades set up on the beach to hammocks strung up in the garden. There’s a volleyball net, ping-pong table, WiFi in the main building and occasionally bonfire nights on the beach. Owner Sylvio can point you to some hikes. Jungle Beach is a place to return to nature and get earthy. Is this place the best value you’ll find around? No way dude. Paradise Resort is the same price per person, with clean, solid beachfront ocean view rooms with private bathroom and also three meals.

You’ll either love Jungle Beach or hate it, but those who love it don’t leave for a while...
