The beach, which is around 3km from the World Heritage ancient town of Hoi An and 22 kilometres south of the central city of Da Nang, is in 17th position, up five places from last year.
This is the fourth consecutive year An Bang has won a place in the list.
Those who voted for the beach said it is one of the few white-sand beaches left in Vietnam that hasn’t been spoiled by the boom in beach tourism. The best time to visit this beach is between May and September.
An Bang first came into international limelight when CNN listed it as one of the 100 best beaches on earth in 2011.
Radhanagar Beach in India’s Andaman Islands topped this year’s TripAdvisor list, followed by Kelingking Beach in Bali, Nai Harn Beach in Thailand and Agonda Beach, also in India.
