With one of the world’s most beautiful bays, numerous white sand beaches, and typically sunny weather, Nha Trang ranks as one of Vietnam’s top seaside resorts. If you’re looking for a day of sun, sand, and sea, these beaches are your best bets.
Tran Phu Beach
Tran Phu, sometimes just called Nha Trang Beach as it fronts the town itself, is the main beach area and center of action, complete with a beachside promenade and easy access to numerous resorts, shops, and seafood restaurants. It’s also a popular nightlife destination.
Doc Let Beach
Doc Let Beach, situated north of Nha Trang, is well worth a visit to experience a simpler beach day. Local fishing families will cook for you right on the sand, and the calm, limpid sea is perfect for a good, long swim or snorkeling.
Hon Mun Island
Situated a few miles off the coast of Nha Trang, Hon Mun ranks among the region’s most popular beach escapes for snorkeling and scuba diving, thanks to the colorful fish-filled coral reefs located just offshore.
Long Beach, also known as Bai Dai Beach, attracts beach-goers looking for a more secluded and relaxed atmosphere. The clear water at this beautiful beach is perfect for swimming, and a few restaurants scattered along the waterfront serve a mix of Vietnamese and Western food.
Hong Chong Beach
Just north of Nha Trang lies Hong Chong Beach, a quiet stretch of sand next to a rock formation stretching out into the water with excellent panoramic views of the bay. Hong Chong is one of the area’s quieter beaches, yet visitors will still find several coffee shops and seafood restaurants lining the shore.
