“Lazy afternoon at 'The Shack'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

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.... Do'nt go there when you are in a hurry - make a day of it and learn how to surf!

“Awesome day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

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

“Relax or surf, both top options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

Fantastic beach, its a little patch of paradise away from the bustle of Nha Trang. The shack is very chilled out with a great atmosphere and staff. We went for the day and even though we missed the surf by a day it was still worth the trip. Extremely relaxed and friendly, plus as a bonus the trip over from Nha Trang is great fun on scooters/motorbikes and not too hairy by Vietnamese standards.

“Brian and Shack Surf School is FANTASTIC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2011

My very first surfing experience was in Vietnam with Brian at Shack Surf School. Brian was so patient and kind. He made learning how to surf so easy! He explained everything so well and made sure that before the end of our 1 hour session I was up on the board almost every time! I wish I didn't live so far away, so I could go surfing again, I LOVED IT!!
Thanks Brian :)
