Closer to Nha Trang

There are several beaches in the vicinity of Nha Trang. About 30 km north of Nha Trang, just when past the village of Ninh Hoa, a peninsula juts out into the South Chinese Sea, and on its northern coast rides its tinier brother, Hon Khoi. Several resorts are located on the eastern beach of Hon Khoi, where you find palm-trees, white sand and turquoise waters. To get there, follow the highway north past the turnoff to Dac Lac Province/Buon Ma Thuot. Then look out for a sign reading "Doc Let-Resort", close to a filling station. A taxi will take 2 persons for about 200,000 dong, while a Xe Om should not be more expensive than 100,000 dong. Or catch a through-bus plying highway Nr.1 and jump off at the turn off. There will always be some motorbike-drivers waiting to take you. Whatever place you choose to go, be sure to reserve a bungalow in advance.

    •    Bai Dai (Long Beach) At 20km south of Nha Trang, this is best keep secret in town. Fantastic blue water and a nicer (less steep and better sand) beach than in town. Come there to find fresh seafood serve at many shacks with deckchairs right on the beach. Best to go by motorcycle or ask your hotel to organise a taxi for you(and don't forget the pickup back). Walk a kilometer or so and you will find yourself alone on that fantastic beach. Do it now, they have begun to build access roads for the soon to come resorts.

   •    Ba Ho (3 lakes) About 20km north of Nha Trang are a collection of 3 small lakes and scenic waterfalls. The entry cost is 10,000D and you may want to bring some sturdy shoes to climb across the rocks and swimming gear for a dip when you get there. Hire a taxi or take a motorcycle to get there. It will take about 45 minutes from the entrance of the tourist area to the lakes. There is an orphanage very close to the lakes (take a right turn when you get to a T-junction in the rice fields) that would really benefit from any gifts of vegetarian food (take milk, tofu, yoghurt etc). Call Dieu An, the nun on 0905 823807 - she speaks Vietnamese however.

    •    Doc Let Beach Resort, sign-posted; Tel. 058.3849.663, Fax 849.506. The best known place and closest to the mainland. Though it started out as a traveller's secret, it quickly became a destination for domestic tourists, who basically flood the place during weekends and holidays. There is some socialist charm to the not so "white palm beach turquoise waters"-like architecture of the place, but it's definitely not the old Robinson-feeling you might be craving. A 333 beer plus 6 huge langoustines will set you back all of 90,000 dong!

Jungle Beach is approx. an hour’s drive north of Nha Trang. The beach is environmentally friendly and visitors sometimes spend a few days there at the following resort to enjoy a quiet vacation:

    •    Jungle Beach, ☎ 058.3622.384 ( 64km north of Nha Trang and run by a Canadian-Vietnamese couple, all meals are included.

Run by an elderly gentleman and his Vietnamese family. Vladimir is a very interesting, jovial guy and his family cooks up wonderful food. beers are cheap and you just mark a chit on a sheet on the refrigerator to keep track of your total. He is also a bit cheap, and may scrintch on the water supply to your bungalow. Just tell him to turn it back on! The beach in front is beautiful and usually deserted except for some village kids. It is very easy to sleep a week away there in a hammock kissed by sea breezes. Usually a wonderful bunch of travellers there to socialize with at meals and in the evenings. You can rent a motorbike in Nha Trang for the easy ride up to Doc Let. Any buses can also drop you on the main road for a 10 minute walk to Paradise. Vladimir will also drop you in Nha Trang on the back of his scooter if he's going into town. Bungalows are US$16-18 (US$11-14 for a single person), depending on how close they are to the beach.
