This is much more like the Vietnam that I expected to see (rather than the more upmarket Sailing Club, Louisiane Brewhouse etc on Nah Trang beach). Rent a motorbike and make the trip south, takes about half an hour or slightly more if you stop for a drink at one of the roadside shacks on the way. Food is great,... More

We went to the shack because Tripadvisor had it rated so high. We were disappointed with the food, service and atmosphere. It lived up to none of the expectations created by postings on trip advisor. In fairness, it was the last day of a huge Vietnamese celebration which I think they were clearly unprepared for. They were vastly understaffed in... More

Loved it, straight of the holiwood beach bamboo bar, no end to the white sands in sight. Been there many times, the seafood is fresh amd the beers are cold! Just make sure you have someone/taxi/tour to take you - be safe!

a 12 mile drive south of Nha Trang on Bai Dai beach. The drive itself is worth the trip. Check out their website, http://www.shackvietnam.com/about-us/, for exact direstions as it can be somewhat difficult to lacate. It's in the center of a group of shacks located on the water, with surf boards, jet skis, etc. and the water lapping at your... More

Firstly- the location on Tripadvisor map is just wrong! It's in a totally different spot, about 20km away from the city. This place is just perfect to escape from Nha Trang and chill on almost wild beach. Food is really nice, loved the coco loco drink served in a coconut:) burger- it was probably the best I had in my... More

Great place right on the beach selling good food and cocktails. Cool music. Friendly staff. Really nice to eat some Mexican food! It's been hard to find in Asia. Only thing I would say is the beach didn't exactly live up to the pics on the day we were there. Lots of washed up trash everywhere. The guys at the... More

The Shack is a place that is worth keeping secret, too many visitors will spoil its rustic charm. Perfect beach, clean ocean, ice come beers, great burgers for the kids and the most amazing fresh seafood. Couldn't ask for a better afternoon session, we will be back soon. Thanks to the French couple who run this great little gem

You have to come here if you go in Nha Trang. The Shack is well located on a beautiful beach, with much less tourists that the main one, that is worth the 20 km of driving. The staff is very friendly and they serve great food at a very fair price. It's also a good spot if you want to... More

If you can ride scooter,make sure you rent one , just bring one more thing: off-line Google map then you were there. The view on the road is fantastic especially during the sunset. I went there a little bit late like around 6p.m, the atmosphere there was sure wonderful! Try night swimming after sunset,floating on the water then Stars filling... More
