Ho Tram Beach
Ho Tram Beach, located in Ba Ria, Vung Tau Province, has 10 kilometers of pristine sea, fine beaches, and palm trees. The beach has a variety of lodging options with expansive views of the East Bay, as well as thatched seafood restaurants near the Ho Tram fishing village with deck chairs and camping facilities at reasonable prices. Ho Tram Beach draws both locals and visitors seeking to soak up some rays while on vacation in Ho Chi Minh City, owing to its relatively easy entry.
Ho Tram Beach’s western end is home to mid-range resorts that provide day trips to local fruit plantations and fishing villages. We strongly recommend spending a day soaking in thermal pools and mud baths at Binh Chau Hot Springs.
What to See and Do in Ho Tram Beach
Activities such as swimming, golfing, and sunbathing are available if you stay at a luxurious resort. The Grand Ho Tram hotel has a grand casino and golf course that are free to non-guests; however, if you wish to try your luck at the casino, you must have your passport with you because locals are not allowed to gamble.
Seafood restaurants can also be located in the Ho Tram hamlet, where you can choose from a wide variety of live oysters, octopus, clams, tuna, shrimp, and crabs. Please keep in mind that most locals are not fluent in English (and most restaurants do not have menus), so we suggest practicing some simple Vietnamese or referring to your favorite seafood. A kilogram of shellfish would cost between VND 100,000 and VND 350,000, with additional cooking charges of at least VND 10,000 for steaming and VND 20,00 for grilling.
