About Travel to Nha Trang
Nha Trang is Vietnam’s 7th largest city. Estimates of the permanent population of Nha Trang vary from 280,000 to over 390,000. During holiday season, particularly at the weekends, the number of people in Nha Trang grows dramatically with a surge of holiday makers. Nha Trang is Vietnam’s most popular beach resort town.
Beach in Nha Trang
Nha Trang’s principal attraction is it’s 6 km white sand beach located in the city centre. It is safe to swim in the roped off sections where jetskis and boats are not permitted. The Tran Phu Road runs the entire length of the beach and form an impressive promenade for visitors to take coastal strolls. Bars, restaurants and resort line the beach. It is these ingredients, combined with clear waters (except during the short monsoon season from September through to early December), which make Nha Trang such a popular beach resort town.
Other Less Busy Beaches near Nha Trang
However, if you are after the best beaches then you should head 49 km north of Nha Trang train station to Doc Let beach and nearby Jungle beach, 18.5 km South of Doc Let beach at the bottom of a small peninsula.
At one point in time Jungle beach and Doc Let beach were lesser known destinations and under developed (rather like the legendary Thong Nai Pan beach on Koh Phangan during the 1990s), however, both destinations are both firmly on the tourist trail for both foreign and domestic tourists. Both beaches are less crowded and cheaper places to stay than around Nha Trang beach but they no longer offer visitors a ‘Robinson Crusoe’ type experience. What they do offer though is mid range and inexpensive beach front accommodation which is not too busy especially during weekdays.
