My husband and I are planning a trip there end of July, beginning of August. We are needing some r& r and would like a few beach days. Suggestions?

I'd say the best beaches I've seen in Vietnam are on Phu Quoc Island. I also liked the beach around Da Nang/Hoi'an, not as clean and natural but a nice area. You'll want to check the weather patterns before deciding as different regions have different rainy seasons.
Nha Trang, a delightful south coast city, is generally recognised as Vietnam's premier beach destination. Six kilometres of sand joins the sea to the city, with rolling waves on one side and fringed on the other by cafes, restaurants, and some unusual modern sculptures.

Last month, my friend visited Co To island in the north. It is among the pristine beauties in Vietnam which is located in Quang Ninh province.

Most of the beaches in the Central and in the South are enjoyable, so you can easily find places for some r&r. I would highly recommend Phu Quoc and Con Dao Island.
In the North I think beaches are less clean and you have to go to some islands to find clean ones. And like some others said above Co To is a good choice.

July and August are the 2 months of the monsoon in the South, so beaches in Phu Quoc or Con Dao Islands is more than risky. As for Nha Trang, the beach is lined with concrete and it has the bad reputation of being the destination of Russian tourists-drunkards; I would strongly recommend HOI AN, with its 2 beautiful beaches (An Bong with no hotels and Cua Dai with a lot of expensive resorts, both accessible by bicycle) + the very charming Cham island.

I vote for Nha Trang. It's considered to be one of the most beautiful bay around the world. There are also many places to visit: Ponagar Tower, Long Son Pagoda, 4 Islands. You definitely should try street food there - cheap and unique.
If you want to spend much time at the beach I recommend that you should book a room on Tran Phu Street, the center of Nha Trang. It's opposite the beach. You can have a very fascinating room view
Here are some beautiful beaches and islands, must visit these beaches while traveling in Vietnam:
· Doc Let
· Phan Thiet
· Phu Quoc Island

Remember the surfing scene in 'Apocalypse Now', it was shot in the Baler Beach, Philippines but was actually inspired by NON NUOC Beach, DA NANG.

How about trying Bai Dai Beach in Cam Ranh, Khanh Hoa? It lies between Nha Trang and Cam Ranh Airport, and about 25km from Nha Trang.
I've been there once, the beach is clean & transparent; not so many visitors so it's quite peaceful. There are rocks alongside the beach too. Many Russian visitors stay there.
