Hailed as the ‘Beach Capital’ of Vietnam, Nha Trang is a modern city located next to a stunning stretch of soft-white sand and azure-blue water leading to a smattering of offshore islands perfect for watersports, snorkelling, diving and boat-trips. The 6km stretch of sublime sand is a stone’s throw from the hotels, shops restaurants and bars of the city’s main tourist strip-Tran Phu; bordered by pristine parks and gardens and overlooking petite islands and tall mountains.
It’s a city that has something to offer everyone, if lazing on one of Vietnam’s most beautiful beaches isn’t enough for you then delve into some of the many activities that Nha Trang has to offer; from exploring its underwater world by island-hopping boat tours with swimming and snorkelling, to deep-sea diving through colorful reefs; water sports; and journeying back in time through visiting Cham Towers and peaceful Pagodas. Not to mention plenty of opportunities to treat yourself to some r&r in the form of relaxation and retail therapy at the many top-notch spas and shops the city offers.
