The central beach resort city Nha Trang has been named one of the eight best beach destinations for foreigners to retire as compiled by American magazine Travel+Leisure.

"Nha Trang has an established expat community of about 4,000 people and its average year-round temperature is approximately 81 degrees Fahrenheit, and there are wet and dry seasons," the magazine said.

According to Travel+Leisure, Nha Trang is an ideal destination for foreign retirees thanks to the availability of high-quality health care with modern facilities and English-speaking staff.

Known for its long stretches of beautiful beaches and scuba diving, Nha Trang has become a top holiday destination in Vietnam.

To come up with a list of the best places to retire near the beach, editors of the magazine researched coastal towns and cities in the U.S. and around the world.

Other destinations on the list were Carlsbad, Beaufort and Ponte Vedra Beach in the U.S., Falmouth in the U.K., Ambergris Caye in Belize, Quepos in Costa Rica and Mazatlán in Mexico.
