The shack is an awesome place to grab a drink(s) and a good burger. On a nice beach a bit outside of the main Nha Trang. Well worth the visit. Get there around lunchtime or early afternoon

We arrived tired, hungry, and low on cash after a higher than expected cab ride from Nha Trang. Luckily the shack was the perfect place to be to recharge. Great drinks, great view, great food. A lot less touristy than Nha Trang beach, a much more relaxed vibe. The owner and staff were awesome and made sure we got taken... More

We went there with some Vietnamese friends who ordered a mixture of seafood and a couple of marinade sauces. We then barbecued at the table which was great fun. Seafood was very fresh and tasty. Beautiful beach, good food and great service.

We had a fun Sunday riding the bikes to Long Beach about 25km from Nha Trang city centre. We're treated as gifts at The Shack Vietnam by lovely people there. Love the food, the guys and the show. Such a MUST on your To Do List when you come and visit the city. Or else, locals can easily join the... More

Cheeseburgers are huge w French fries for VND 140,000, and tasty. As Erick Swackhammer, the band leader said, it is the only party on the beach for expats and Vietnamese friends alike. The other places only have Vietnamese screaming karaoke functions. Huge crowd for today's 24 April reopening after a hiatus for a while. New menu with old and new... More

Such a great atmosphere, delicious food and great service! Stunning beach, you won't run out of stuff to do here🛥⛵️🏖 great to just relax and chill with an ice cold beer or hit the waves. Fancy a scuba? Ask Tom behind the bar 😊

The Shack is a short drive from the central Nha Trang tourist district. Approx 250,000 each way by cab. The perfect way to spend a day relaxing by the beach, away from the often over crowded main beach. Plenty of seats, paddle boards and body boards for hire and most importantly, ice cold beer. Would recommend to all :)

Cannot believe we waited until our last day to visit! Upon arrival we were greeted by Nial and Tom. We selected a table right on the beach, walked into the warm ocean and settled ourselves in for the day. The beer was cold, the food was good, the music funky. A great place to spend a day! We even got... More

Was not greeted at all by anyone. Had to get up and ask for service. They never cleaned the mess from our table (dirty cups and sand on table). They are advertised as having a much wider variety of food than is actually available on their menu. Very disappointing.
