We decided to check this place out due to some excellent reviews below. Our Nha Trang hotel staff looked at us a bit strangely that we would want to go but organized a car nevertheless. On arrival there were lots of eateries however the Shack was the one we were looking for. Great beach, free use of their floaty toys... More

If you want to escape the tourists in Nha Trang organise a taxi ride 30 minutes to Bai Dai Beach. Our taxi driver stayed for the 4 hours we were there . The beach has gentle rolling waves and ricketty wooden shacks line the beach. The Shack is the better one to go to. Table, umbrella and sunchairs were provided... More

great local beach restaurant. take a scooter out as its further than the main beach. its nestled around the locals and is surrounded by other local food places - literally on the beach with sand in your feet and sitting on bean bags looking out to the sea. good selection of cheap asian and western food!

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
