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. 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 destination 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.
