We cycled to the beach and stayed at one of the beach bars. There was a bank to climb down onto the sand, but as this was being eroded, they had sand- bags along the edge of the bank. The beach was wider further along, but there were no toilets or showers here.

I'm sure the beach is lovely in the dry season, but it was horrible when we went - so rough! Not much there either...just rows of thatched restaurant shacks with vendors that nag you to come and have something to eat.

We cycled to Cua Dai beach on one of the sunnier days we had whilst in Hoi An. The beach itself is nice with good sand and a nice surf to swim in. I also enjoyed watching the fishermen on the horizon in their turtleback fishing boats. It seems the only way on to the beach is through a restaurant... More

but now its pretty much a construction site. The only acess to any kind of beach is through one of the restaurants, and when you get there be prepared for the high pressure hawking. If the beach and sea were anything special you'd put up with it but in mid January the sea was very rough and the beach was... More

We visited a couple of beaches in Hoi An and this was the best. Lots of sand and not eroded like the others. The weather wasnt great when we were there, but we still went swimming. The beach is a few kilometers out of town, easily reached on bicycle or a short ride in a taxi.

It is a nice beach but it was a little bit dirty as many restaurants are surrounding the beach, so for instance I was swimming with a fish head next to me, but overall is a tranquil place to stay and warm water overall!

Very relaxing and beautiful. Restaurant's food was very good. We cycled to the beach the first day and went on motor bike the next day.

Its a beautiful beach and has an array of tourists hanging out at all times.. plenty of locals that set up the tiny plastic furniture in the evening and sell their local food.. its amazing just to walk along the surf under a clear sky or even sit on the little plastic furniture and listen to the waves while you...

We cycled down to the beach from Sunflower Hostel, and the sea was clear blue with palm trees everywhere for shade. The most amusing part was a large group of Vietnamese kids finishing from school and jumping the waves and swimming in full school uniform, very odd, but amusing.

Perhaps it was the season but the sea was very rude and the sand was almost all taken by the water. It would not be a place to o for a day on the beach, but, again, it coud have been the time of the year (january)
