They are An Thoi islet off PhuQuoc Island in southern Kien Giang province, and Binh Lap island in the centralprovince of Khanh Hoa. 

Remarking on the “constructionsite soundtrack” that accompanies beaches on Phu Quoc, the article advisestravellers to take a boat from the island’s port to An Thoi, which has“secluded coves and colourful reefs almost completely devoid of humans”.

Fifth on the list is Binh LapIsland in Cam Ranh Bay, which it describes as secluded and “more Seychellesthan Southeast Asia”.

Two beaches each in Thailandand Malaysia, one each in Hong Kong, Cambodia and the Philippines are also inthe list. 

Interestingly, it includes anisland in landlocked Laos, “which only materialises in the November to Aprildry season as the Mekong River recedes”.

To prevent these and otherunspoilt beaches from being ruined by tourism, The Telegraph article advisesvisitors to “be responsible by removing all of your own rubbish, don’t abscondwith seashells or sands and use an ocean-safe sunscreen”.
