The town of Nha Trang is built along a wide sandy beach fringed with coconut palms. Close to the town, it is busy with vendors offering a wide range of refreshments and services, but quieter further away. Once known as Viet Nam’s St. Tropez, Nha Trang is the closest thing to a Western-style resort in the country. The beach is safe for swimming, although heavy rain in November and December makes the normally crystal-clear water very murky.
Boat trips take visitors for cruises and barbeques on the several rocky islands in the bay. There are several scuba diving centres with good facilities. Apart from one small beachside resort, there are no hotels above mid-range standard. There is a wide selection of inexpensive Vietnamese and international restaurants and some after-dark entertainment. Eighty kilometres to the north is Whale Island. An attractive natural area with a single resort hotel and diving centre, it is an excellent location for diving, water sports, romantic holidays and relaxation.
