Da Nang is a Vietnamese Novorossiysk, only with a clean beach and clear sea. Neighboring Hoi An is packed with tourists to the eyeballs and somewhat resembles the bustling Anapa.

Danang is a large industrial city in which there is practically no tourist industry. On the streets they do not sell bags and bracelets made from crocodile leather, grocery stores do not have double tariffs for foreigners. Citizens work in offices in the business part of the city, and do not stick to visitors on the streets. Here, reasonable prices, and because the main customers of local hotels are domestic tourists.

This resort is suitable for families with children not only because of the cleanliness, but also because of the convenient entry into the sea and shallow areas near the shore.

Got its unofficial name because of the large number of Chinese among the rest nearby and dazzling white sand under their feet.Its length is about 4 km. Despite the absence of coves and bays, the sea near “Bak My An” rarely storms, and from January to August there is no unrest at all. Storms depend on wind direction. If he blows a little on the side, the breakers do not even reach the beach, they break on the way. If straight, the waves become large, and the water temperature can drop to 20 ° C. But such a storm usually does not last longer than one day.

Despite its desert and lack of entertainment, China Beach belongs to the centralized city beaches. For the safety of holidaymakers there are lifeguards. A rescuer on duty sits on a tower and shouts or whistles to everyone who has swum away. Moreover, it continues to work even late in the evening!

Non Nuoc

Us about

This small beach, located northwest of Da Nang, is known for the sad episode of Vietnamese history. It was here that the American marines landed in 1965, and then began war between the USA and Vietnam. Now it’s just a cozy, lonely place away from the main tourist routes.

The beaches of Da Nang can be called one of the key attractions of Vietnam. But we must hurry! Tourists constantly post photos and videos about their visit to “Mi Khe” or “China Beach”, with might and main praising the rest on the desert coast. With such an advertising campaign, it will soon cease to be so.
