Nha Trang Beach
Nha Trang is undoubtedly Vietnam’s highest energy beach and a party town at heart. There are hundreds of beautiful islands and each of them is a gem. Some provide great scenes for diving and snorkeling while the others are ideal for beach breaks. This beach city is for anyone, solo, couples, gay and lesbian travelers, and families.
Due to the huge makeover over the past 10 years, there is a great number of accommodation options opened for visitors, from mini hotels to world class 5 star resorts, mostly centrally located. With its shiny sand, crystal clear water and diverse marine life, Nha Trang is apparently an ideal place for swimming and exploring the living environment of ocean creatures. Both snorkeling and diving are preferred and are easy to register. Some of the other water sports are also widely enjoyed such as water ski, parasailing, jet ski, kayaking and sailing, which have made Nha Trang beach the most active beach of all.
For those who are looking for an isolated paradise, it is recommended to hide away in Ninh Van Bay which is can only be accessed by boat. Well, the transfer itself already gives you that “isolated” and “hideaway” feeling. You will feel awarded when you reach there! The island is extremely private and quiet, surrounded by dramatic rock formations, pristine beaches and colorful coral reef grown along the shore. And, the most important thing that can not be missed, is seafood. It can not be easier for you to look for living lobsters and fish. There are plenty of floating fish and lobster farms around the island. Get on the resort speedboat and take a 1-minute ride offshore, you will find yourself standing in the middle of the bay, with huge fresh lobsters and many types of ocean fish swimming under the water, right next you where you are standing.
The only constraint of staying in Ninh Van Bay is that there are 3 options for accommodation which cost quite a lot: Six Senses Ninh Van Bay and An Lam Retreat and L’Alyana Ninh Van Bay , no other budget hotels around! But you get what you pay for. All resorts follow the luxury concept, offer you the atmosphere of extreme relaxing with top notch service. While Six Senses aims their feature to the utmost natural touch with all wooden facilities, An Lam and L’Alyana combines the traditional and modern décor to create a comfortable and cozy ambiance. All resorts organize water sport activities or light trekking tour up to the mountains which take approximately half day.
The best time to visit Nha Trang would be from February till April, when temperature is kept moderate at around 26-27 degree Celsius, and precipitation stay at the lowest level of the year. Though long dry season gives beach lovers a big time budget to enjoy the sun-sea-sand in the area, tourists are advised to visit here before the late of June to avoid high humidity and tropical heat in two hottest months of the year (July and August). Nha Trang experiences only four “wet months”, from September till mid-December, which are also a time to reconsider visiting Nha Trang.
