The 50-room Mia Resort Nha Trang is a 5-star luxury boutique resort in a cliffside location with stunning sea views, 30 minutes outside of Nha Trang. Chic, airy condos and villas have ocean views, plus some have private plunge pools and outdoor showers. There are two restaurants on-site serving Vietnamese and Western cuisine (and free breakfast), as well as an excellent spa, an infinity-edge pool, and a stretch of beautiful private beach. The fitness center is pleasant, but offers a limited selection of equipment, and the hotel operates a free, but infrequent, shuttle service to Nha Trang.

Qixingtan Beach, Hualien Taiwan

Located at the north end of Hualien City, Qixingtan Beach (七星潭) is one of the most beautiful beaches in Taiwan. Picturing our ideal beach setting and Qixingtan would probably be it. The beautiful blue sky meets an endless Pacific expanse. The shore is bespeckled with white and black gravel that is smooth to the touch. A canopy of clouds seems to crown the mountains that embrace the coastline. This is the kind of beach that might be listed as one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Though largely a secret to the outside world, Qixingtan’s scenery is famous among the Taiwanese. 

In the daytime, the Qingshui cliffs (清水斷崖) can be seen in the distance. In the evening, the beach serves as an ideal spot for stargazing. As we’re sitting there, we heard thunderous roar from behind and were startled, just looking to the sky we caught sight of an F-16 fighter jet taking off from the nearby Hualien Air Force Base.
