Vadul lui Vodă is a town in the Chișinău municipality, Moldova. It is an eastern suburb of the capital of the country, and is well known as a resort.

The town is situated 23 km east of Chișinău on the right (western) bank of the Dniester river. During the Soviet era, several million tons of sand were brought in to create a wide artificial beach. Today it retains a small, mostly local, tourist trade.

The town day is celebrated on November 8.
