The coastal city of Nha Trang boasts a four mile stretch of beach, which is considered as one of the jewels of Vietnam's long coastline. The city is surrounded by green hills, and a deep-blue bay which is fringed with a glorious crescent of golden-white sand. There are many nearby small islands which protect the bay from the unpredictable South China Sea, and it is possible to take a boat cruise around this picturesque landscape. The magnificent coral seabed also makes it ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling. Another major draw for the town is the excellent seafood available at reasonable rates throughout Nha Trang.
There are a number of hotels and resorts to suit most budgets and tastes in and around the city, but we recommend staying a bit out of town get a more peaceful experience. The most luxurious resorts are located in the secluded Ninh Van Bay, accessible only by boat from Nha Trang.
