An alluring hideaway renowned for its stunning beach and its sublime seclusion.
Lang Co is one of those destinations which only seem to exist in your daydreams. A tranquil fishing village in the verdant heart of Vietnam, overlooking a 10 kilometre beach and a crystal clear lagoon, this is the epitome of a tropical heaven, a place of inspiring ancient history and supreme natural splendour. The perfect base form which to discover the area, the town is close to three of Vietnam's most incredible UNESCO World Heritage sites - Hoi An Ancient Town, The Imperial Citadel of Hue, and My Son Sanctuary – each a truly unforgettable attraction, and well worth visiting. Not far from vibrant tourist hotspots like Hue and Da Nang, this peaceful backwater delivers the luxury of a relaxing beach holiday with options to easily enjoy all the superb sights and experiences the country is famous for.
Surrounded by pristine national parks, lush rainforests, rugged mountains, and breathtaking waterfalls, the area is an adventurer's paradise.

It’s easy to see why this is such a haven for travellers. For lovers of sand and sea, Lang Co's powdery white beach was named among the most beautiful in the world, and there are plenty of places serving fresh seafood and drinks along the strand. Exciting water sports like jet-skiing and parasailing are well represented, and golf lovers are spoiled with easy access to an 18-hole championship golf course. Tourists should head to the Hai Van Pass to find some of the best vistas around. One of Vietnam's most famously scenic roads, winding through the mountains and peaking at 500 metres above sea level, the ascent is invigorating, and the panoramic views completely mesmerising.
