Nha Trang beaches are spread out around the beach resort city, offering a myriad of sightseeing and recreational activities for visitors looking to soak up the sun during their holiday. Often called the Riviera of the South China Sea, Nha Trang boasts a six-kilometre stretch of beautiful coastline with a wide array of dining and accommodation options set along the white sandy beaches.
No two beaches are the same in Nha Trang, ranging from the bustling Tran Phu Beach for travellers who want to be in the centre of all the action to the more remote Bai Dai Beach that is great for when you want to escape the often overcrowded city. Some of these locales may be a long drive away from Nha Trang City, but the tranquil scenery of the coastline makes it well worth trip.
Tran Phu Beach is easy to walk to from almost anywhere in Nha Trang City, making it the most popular beach in Nha Trang. It hosts the iconic Tran Phu Street, which is a beautiful seaside promenade with plenty of luxury and mid-range beachfront resorts, hostels, souvenir shops, museums, and seafood restaurants.
Nightlife around Tran Phu Beach is also popular – highly recommended bars include The Sailing Club, ZIMA, and Skylight Skydeck & Rooftop Beach Club. Alternatively, there’s a wide array of activities such as surfing, snorkelling, bicycle tours, spa treatments, meditation and yoga in Tran Phu Beach.
Priced at VND 35,000 per day, you can also lounge on beach beds and deck chairs along the beachside. Due to its popularity, there is a noticeable amount of trash such as empty bottles and cigarette stubs in places.
