Headed up from hcmc to da nang and read reviews on this place. It is a shack...nestled between many similar at the n end of the beach. We are here in December (surf season for the region) and it seems off season for the place (few visitors). Roman was the consummate host. He has a decent selection of boards short... More

The sea was no great for surfing so I gave paddle boarding a go which I was not great at so came in and they only charged me the length of time I went out, which was a nice surprise. The beach was beautiful, very paradise-esque if you go to Nha Trang you must go here!!

A great place to relax and have drinks served by the adorable young french couple who owns the place. Take a surf or a paddle board while waiting for the fresh seafood lunch which you will grill on your own BBQ. Not many waves when I was there, but go in the fall for great surfing. If you're a beginner,... More

After reading the review on tripadvisor we decided to take a taxi to the Shack while staying in Nha Trang. Our taxi driver ended up dropping us off at wrong place and told us that The Shack was closed. He of course dropped us to another beach shacky style restaurant with a similar set up (all the restaurants face the... More

Just arrived back to our hotel after having visited "The Shack". We had read about this place on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. The taxi driver had to stop a few times to seek directions off the locals however we arrived from Nha Trang after about 30 mins. There were several open style restaurants along the beach front. The Shack... More

The Shack on Bai Dai Beach near Nha Trang, is a must while you visiting this region Vietnam. The Shack is just one of many shack type eating places on Bai Dai Beach, however this place stands because the young American guy who operates the place can knock up a real mean burger. Seafood is also sold at the Shack... More

Fantastic times at Tippy's Surf Shack - we spent two full days there and would have slept there had there been hammocks! Got a surf lesson form Tippy - my first ever - and it was great, very well explained and there was a full safety explanation as well. Food was excellent - really nice fish tacos and fresh fish...

Fresh seafood, cheap beer and watch my boyfriend surf all afternoon. Go to the Shack for a lazy and chilled day out. You can rent a board or sit all day on the deck chairs and grill your seafood. Excellent service by Tippy, the co-owner.

We spent a very lazy and relaxing afternoon at The Shack. Included in our group were 6 South African students recovering from the hectic Nha Trang nightlife! The laid back atmosphere, the sound of the waves beneath the wooden platform and the continued supply of seafood waiting to be roasted resulted in this visit being one of our Vietnam highlights.......

Had a great day at the shack. Spent the morning learning to surf and managed to get up on the board. Everyone was very friendly and they arranged transport for us too. The setting was beautiful, a 8km long beach with a few shacks on it. Food was great too, I recommend the burger or the fish and chips
