“Perfect afternoon in Nha Trang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Beautiful 30min motorbike ride south from the city. Solid portions of Vietnamese food and authentic Mexican. Great place to escape, chill out and drink a coconut.

The owner was even nice enough to drive me 15min to the airport when my taxi didn't come...that's hospitality!

“Make the effort to get out here from Nha Trang, it's easier and shorted ride on a moped than you think! Well worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

Had a sensational few days hanging out at the shack. Rode my moped out each morning and then back late arvo/ night. Once you navigate the roundabouts in Nha Trang it's a super easy cruise on the open road.

When the waves work it is super fun. Perfect to learn on.

I will be back!
Cheers for the chill vibes Tip and the crew @ Shack.

“Favourite place in Vietnam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This place is fantastic and will be a rewarding experience for anyone. To get there : Hire a taxi in town. It will cost you 400,000 dong($19-20) for the return trip and the driver will wait for you. The setting is magnificent right on the sand with crystal clear and clean water for swimming,surfing. There is usually a good wave several times a year(from oct - nov is really good). Staff and owner are great and the beer is icy cold and comes with a cooler. There is always plenty of good company and tunes playing.The mexican food i have not tried but the burger I devoured was pretty good better than any in Nha Trang, but the best thing about this place is the seafood. It is all still swimming when you order and most is grilled on your own table on the beach. I think it is called Ba Ngoi and the prices are much better than in town and it is the freshest available. I can recommend the giant green prawns( about $20 per kg), blue swimmer crabs ($5-10kg), freshly shucked oysters with 3 dressings($3 half dz,$5 dozen) and the marinated squid ($3 half kg $5 kg). Great prices and a great place to be a king for a day.

“The Best Pleace In Nha Trang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

It's a little hard to find. But if you know your directions a little bitt it would be no problem to find. Just take the first left. When you come from the highest mountain fron the way of Nha Trang.

The staff (Tippy & Co.) is really nice. And there is a really nice vibe all around.
The food is good and not that expensive.
You can rent surfware when ever you like and there's a lot around to rent.
The beach is beatiful and very clean.

Aigain all en all a great place to be!
