Phu Yen is a new emerging beach destination for both Vietnamese and international holidaymakers. Lying between Nha Trang and Quy Nhon, the province of Phu Yen is one that travelers generally pass through on their way up or down Vietnam’s long coastline. The provincial capital of Tuy Hoa is 120 km north of Nha Trang. It has an airport with direct flights to HCMC as well as good rail and bus connections. Some 12km south of Tuy Hoa, Long Thuy Beach is a long stretch of white sand that is popular with local Vietnamese, yet still to be discovered by international tourists. Further south, Vung Ro has numerous islands that can be explored from the mainland.
