I visited the beach bar “Le Banyan” two times while I stayed in Hoi An. It’s located directly at  “An Bang” beach, Hoi An 51000, Vietnam (when you are at the beach and look at the sea – go left … it’s the last bar).

Beach Bar in Hoi An, Vietnam

A very relaxing atmosphere brought me there two times in a row – it felt like your local beach bar. Comfy day beds in the sand overlooking the bay. Hammocks. Yummy food. A pool table. Laid back (in a positive way!) and friendly staff. You feel at home here.

The food is more western than asian – you feel the french influence from the owner. We enjoyed some mussels with carbonara and little one got some fish and chips – a very welcome dish for him. Also make sure you enjoy one of the cocktails or just a cold beer or juice here.

Relax and feel at home

Enjoy the warm sea. You might get sometimes a few waves – but the sea is mainly calm. It’s far less busy than Cua Dai beach – hardly anyone hassling you to buy something (hope it stays like this). You watch the locals going fishing in their funny looking round boats – called coracles. The main advantage of these boats is that they hardly disturb the water or the fish – perfect for fishing. Great to see that these traditional boats are still in use.

This red bikini is by Watersun. I love their swimwear for their well made, flattering and slightly vintage styles.

Here are some impressions of my visit:
