Blessed with a privileged strip of coastline, Nha Trang offers the very best conditions for a grand holiday: sparkling bay, gorgeous beaches, year-round sunshine, lively nightlife and more.
This small coastal city hosts one of the world’s most beautiful bays, Nha Trang Bay. Its pristine and splendid beaches, surrounded by green hills and shaded with palms, are considered the best of Vietnam. It can be mentioned here Dai Lanh Beach (37 km north of city center), Doc Let Beach (34 km north) and Tran Phu Beach (along Tran Phu Street, the Pacific Coast Highway of Vietnam). With deep bay, white sand together with calm and warm azure water, Nha Trang is the marine city in dreams of most people. It is an ideal destination for bathing, swimming, sailing, fishing, and snorkeling. Especially, Nha Trang is a famous spot for diving enthusiasts and may be the only spot on central coast where you can find certified dive shops. It also boasts some of Vietnam’s top seafood restaurants as well as nice Thai, Indian and Italian cafes. Nha Trang bird’s net soup is the best all over the country.
Nha Trang is extremely lucky to not be influenced by monsoons that turn the rest of southern Vietnam into water six months every year. This coastal city enjoys beautiful sunshine almost year round (except the rainy October, November and December).
The best time to visit Nha Trang beaches is of course from January to early October. However, it is important to note that temperature will peak up in August while infrequent typhoons may hit the south central coast from June to October, so be on top of weather forecast for these months.
Nha Trang wind is generally not strong enough for windsurfing, with the exception of Doc Let beach (35 km north of Nha Trang), which is usually reserved for expert surfers. The least windy months of the year are April, May and June.
