Depends on the shoreline .... Nha Trang is a very long stretch of Ocean.....

I am sure that is possible from some places but not the center of town by the Yacht Club area.

Try the shore of "Hòn Chồng" north of the bridge on a clear day when there's no rubbish from the estuary.

Hardly any fish but there are some corals; nothing to write home about though.

Nevertheless, it's still a nice little area to bike to, at least to take a stroll for a different view of the city.

There's a quaint coffee spot there, too - on a weekday.

Cheers,

John

Thanks. I wonder if anyone has taken an aerial pic via drone.

I've seen many flycam videos of Nha Trang; all you have to do is to search for them.

I cannot recall one for Hòn Chồng, but there are views looking down from a few different vintage points.

I've also watched at least one snorkeling video of the area.

To tell you the truth, I must have watched a few ten thousand of videos about VN, I can't remember them all.

Cheers,

John

For snorkeling it will be best for you to go out to the marine park. Hon tam island also has some nice different options.
