I very much like it there and go as often as I can.Paradice beach resort is worth a nights stay and a day trip out on there boat is not expensive.
You have a long beach pretty much to yourself.There is a govt run resort there that has everything,swimming pool,tennis courts,restaurants/bar.To the left is a fresh seafood market with Vietnamese restaurants right on the beach with watersports.On the right you have the 3 star white sands resort.
So a little bit of everything and just over an hour from Nha Trang.
thanks so much for all the replies
Do I take a metered taxi to Doc Let Beach from Nha Trang for negotiate a flat rate? Would the taxi wait for me or come back for me or just take another one back to Nha Trang?
Negotiate a flat rate,he will wait,for best price.Can always talk to a local travel agent for more advice.
I have heard that he will arrange to have you picked up from NhaTrang by a private car... I am not sure the source. Give him a phone call when here in NhaTrang, and he will tell you the best way, or better yet, pick you...
I think it's better,worth the trip.Not so busy and not many people there during the week.Vietnamese families like to go there on the weekend.Fresh seafood is very good and not expensive.
I will stay 5 nights ( 4 days in Nha Trang), not too much interested in Vinpearl Land so will look for surrounding beaches in Nha Trang.
I heard the name Long Beach quite often, which one is better between Long Beach and Doc Let Beach ? Can we make a day trip there instead of overnight, and which way is better ?
Bai dai or long beach is a 30min drive from Nha Trang.Good swimming beach in shallow water.No accommodation there,lots of small Vietnamese seafood restaurants where you can chill out on a hammock.Good for a half or full day trip.
Sorry forgot.Only one way there,road to the airport.You will pass Diamond bay resort,where they had the miss universe contest last year.As you have use of the car for half/full day,may as well drop in there.Massive swimming pooland golf driving range.They have just opened a new restaurant called Rose's seafood,may be worth a look.
