Nha Trang's Beaches

With its soft sands stretching for four miles bordered by palm trees and soft lapping waves, Nha Trang Beach is the place for lazy days in the sun.

Rent a sunbed and stay there; vendors regularly pass by selling cold drinks and fresh fruit. If you do decide to move, make it for a swim in the clean warm waters. Get up early or stay late to watch the sun rise and set over the endless horizon.

As Vietnam's diving captal, Nha Trang is surrounded by offshore islands and coral reefs perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving. Take a trip to the protected Hon Mun Marine Park and jump into the warm tropical waters of the South China Sea, home to over 350 species of coral. The good news is, Nha Trang is one of the least expensive places to set yourself the challenge of a PADI training course.
