For foreigners, this is a recently known destination, but for us locals, Da Nang Beach has always been a familiar reference and a dream whenever summer comes. I must admit I’m deeply into beaches, therefore I have a variety of experience to share with you if you are searching for a comprehensive guideline.
My own trip to Da Nang was an unforgettable memory. It was only 2 days from the moment I thought of it till I booked a ticket. Yes, you are right: it was out of spontaneity, and the week spent there was beyond all my imagination.
What is the Best Time to Visit Da Nang?
In general, the most convenient season for traveling is in summer, between June and September, to be specific.
My journey was in July. I was told that I had chosen the right time to visit because Da Nang was the most beautiful with a clear sky and an average temperature of 28 – 30oC. The weather was perfect for outdoor activities, and I indeed had the opportunity to visit numerous locations.
And if you considering what time to visit Da Nang for your trip, feel free to read the article below to have a great trip in here:
In my opinion, the air was quite humid on my skin, since I come from the northern side of the country where it’s usually cooler and drier. However, excitement got the best of me, and I was more than eager to discover the place. Who knows, I might return again in the future and earn a taste of winter tranquility in this mesmerizing city!
Da Nang Beach: A Beach Paradise Of the World
Da Nang has recently become a strong attraction for tourists from all over the world with many investments in facilities, but for a somehow traditional person like me, coming here means visiting the beaches and setting myself free in the embrace of nature.
If you want to discover every beach there is, you will need at least a week. Da Nang Coast is around 60 kilometers long with 15 beaches from Hai Van Pass to The Marble Mountains, and reaching as far as to Cua Dai – Hoi An, each with its own advantages. Gentle waves, clear water, high safety level, a variety of sea creatures, and plenty forms of services – they all have contributed to the piqued popularity of Da Nang Beach.
From the heart of the city, 8 kilometers past Han Bridge, you will arrive at Son Tra Peninsula. It’s surrounded by captivating beaches like Nam Beach, Rang Beach, Tien Sa Beach, Bac Beach,… The common things amongst them are the slope of the sea bottom and the translucent water. Therefore, services are mostly related to relaxation, fishing, mountain hiking, diving.
Heading to the north side, we have Da Nang Bay with Red Beach and Thanh Binh Beach. They are considered pristine beaches because there has yet to be many investors and installed facilities. If you are looking for a peaceful time chilling on the white sand and perhaps a picnic, you shouldn’t miss out!
The popular My Khe Beach, Pham Van Dong Beach, Non Nuoc Beach belong to the southern part of Da Nang. They stretch as long as half of the total coastline and contain numerous froms of entertainment and dining. My choice!
My Khe Beach – Da Nang, Viet Nam
Residing in Son Tra Peninsula, My Khe is the most popular beach that I was determined to visit. I meant, what’s the point of traveling here if we are willing to miss out on a beach ranked in Forbes’ top-6 best beaches of the word?
It took me around 10 minutes to get there by walking. The very few bits of fatigue were immediately chased off as soon as I drank in the sight of the shore with immaculate white sand and the ethereal blue sea. Even though the beach was pleasantly peaceful and quiet in the morning, and I loved it, the concern regarding skincare and the urge to blend in with other tourists convinced me to leave and return once the sun was setting.
My Khe Beach was adorned with a brand new face by the time people deemed it safe to go out and enjoy themselves. Diving, fishing, surfing, beach football,… I couldn’t list all the activities I witnessed. Gathered along the shore was a bustling market that sold the fresh and raw seafood straight from the fishermen’s ships. You are going to love the price!
When night fell, My Khe retreated into its tranquil cape, commented by the romantic sunset and the starry sky. I don’t think anyone who loves taking or admiring poetic pictures will hold back from snapping various shots.
Non Nuoc Beach – Da Nang, Viet Nam
Once you have experienced the most crowded beach, chances are you will be curious about the total opposite of it. Perhaps this was why I packed my back the next day and headed to Non Nuoc Beach.
If My Khe Beach contained many traits of human work and attracted me with its liveliness, Non Nuoc Beach impressed me with the original and spectacular views. It drew a graceful curve around the Marble Mountains. And you know what? After many days of hard work and stress, a barefoot stroll upon the smooth sand while listening to the soothing whispers of the waves was something I didn’t realize I needed. There were large umbrellas over comfy ottomans for hire, an addition of a cooled beverage and a snack will give you the absolute taste of the ocean.
Are you thinking Non Nuoc might be too quiet and peaceful compared to what you are expecting in a summer vacation? I beg to differ! I guess the availability of space plays the main role and explains why this beach can afford entertaining activities such as swimming and diving for a glimpse of the undersea life, kite surfing and even water motorbike if you have a weak spot for speed.
Another bonus was the short distances from Non Nuoc Beach to many interesting destinations, namely the Marble Mountains, the craft village, or merely a journey along the Co Co River.
