Bai Dam Trau among 25 most beautiful beaches worldwide
Update: Apr 19, 2021
Located on Con Dao island, Bai Dam Trau has been listed among the 25 most beautiful beaches in the world, according to a recent article published by Travel + Leisure magazine.
“Trying to select Vietnam's most beautiful beach is tough, but Bai Dam Trau in the Con Dao islands is certainly a top contender,” the article describes.
“With distinct golden sand, soft swells, and shady groves of bamboo and evergreen trees, it's the kind of place to spend the day gently swinging in a hammock with a beach read and walking in the surf with a freshly hacked coconut,” it adds.
Topping the list is Saud Beach on Luzon island in the Philippines, followed by Elafonissi Beach in Greece and Nungwi Beach in Tanzania.
Along with the Vietnamese beach, the list also sees two further representatives from the Asian region, including Railay West in Thailand and Radhanagar in India. 
Travel + Leisure magazine is based in the United States and is among the most prestigious sites which publishes global travel reviews.
Most notably, the 2019 version of the list saw Hoi An city named as one of 15 most beautiful cities across the world. Last year saw Travel + Leisure magazine place Vietnamese hotel The Reverie Saigon at 57th position among the 100 best hotels globally.
