Fabulous Golf, golden beaches & glorious warm weather!
The South Central Coast is home to some of the best beaches in Vietnam, and while there are constant reminders of The Vietnam war along this coast, the tourists inevitably come for some fun in the sun. Be it kite-surfing at Mui Ne beach or night-clubbing in Nha Trang, this region is well geared for foreign visitors.
The twin towns of Phan Rang Thap Cham and nearby Ca Na beach, combine both beaches and Cham towers, the secluded Dai Lanh north of Nha Trang and the spectacular Cam Ranh Bay to the south offer more beaches, while the coastal fishing town of Quy Nhon offers still more beaches, including the gorgeous Nhon Ly beach. Each of these towns remain relatively unknown outside Vietnam, but that will all change in the next few years as the world class golf resorts become known.
Nha Trang is perhaps the best known- it is a bustling coastal resort city known for its beaches, diving sites and offshore islands. Its main beach is a long, curving stretch along Tran Phu Street backed by a promenade, hotels and seafood restaurants. Aerial cable cars cross over to Hòn Tre Island, and the nature reserves of Hòn Mun and Hòn Tằm islands, reachable by boat, have coral reefs. The Vinpearl Nha Trang Resort is nestled on Hon Tre Island, just a 10-minute boat ride from Nha Trang (or cable car).
Half way along the coast between Hoi An and Nha Trang you will find Quy Nhon- just another quiet Vietnamese city with beautiful weather and pristine beaches. While it is quiet and relatively undisturbed at the moment the enormous development at FLC Beach & Golf Resort- with two wonderful golf courses built in the sand adjacent to the golden beaches- will eventually bring the throngs of visitors.
Cam Ranh is similarly undeveloped, but will soon herald the opening of a dramatic new course designed by Greg Norman.
