Ninh Van Bay & Nha Trang Holidays

The beautiful bustling coastal city of Nha Trang lies on Vietnam's south central coast and is renowned for its pristine waters with thriving coral reefs and a long stretch of sandy beach. Those in search of a relaxing hideaway should look no further than the tranquil Ninh Van Bay, a wonderfully exclusive peninsula only accessible by boat.

There's no doubt that Nha Trang's four miles of golden sands are the star attraction. Sheltered by mountains on three sides, Nha Trang's beach is bordered by palm and casuarina trees - as well as some rather unusual modern sculptures, and lapped by brilliant turquoise waters, so it's difficult to think of a more heavenly place to spend lazy days in the sun. When you're in need of refreshments, vendors regularly pass by with cooling drinks and fresh fruit, while just steps from the sands you'll discover an array of restaurants, cafes and bars.

Offshore islands and coral reefs teeming with an abundance of marine life surround Nha Trang. Diving and snorkelling excursions are available to the Nha Trang Bay Marine Protected Area where you can see a wide variety small tropical fish, moray eels and pufferfish. Alternatives include boat cruises to neighbouring islands, spending time in a reviving mud bath, attending a cooking class or hiring a bicycle and pedalling along the quiet scenic roads.

Dramatic Ninh Van Bay is perfect for those seeking a luxurious place to castaway and relax on a white sand beach peppered with massive granite boulders and with a backdrop of towering forested mountains. As the bay is only accessible by boat it's dreamily secluded and perfectly picturesque.
