I showed up here hungover one day hoping to do a surf lesson. Unfortunately the weather didn't agree but that didn't stop me from hanging out and enjoying the beach. The guys who work there are chilled out, friendly and full of local knowledge. Great place to spend a few hours and laze about.

My girlfriend and I just got into Nha trang early this morning and spent most of the morning catching up on sleep from the nightmares of the night bus. We went onto trip advisor and found "the shack" it looked nice and all reviews were good so we decided to give it a go. To get there by taxi cost... More

Enjoy a relaxing day out at Bai Dai beach just south of Nha Trang main beach. The Shack's staff are great and really accommodating; you can rent surf boards and body boards and they can organise diving and snorkel trips to the islands. Great food of all types and plenty of good drink to wash it down with. No crowds... More

I had good vibes at the Shack. The staff is so nice. They have many different boards to enjoy the sea (at the most beautiful and typical beach of Nah Trang !). And after a good session, you can also eat very good seafood just in front of the sea. Just perfect !

During the surf season this place is perfect for recover after riding the waves. Good choise of western and vietnamese cuisine. During low season this place is wonderful for spending your day out of the city and drink some BIA. Love this place!!!

Headed up from hcmc to da nang and read reviews on this place. It is a shack...nestled between many similar at the n end of the beach. We are here in December (surf season for the region) and it seems off season for the place (few visitors). Roman was the consummate host. He has a decent selection of boards short... More

The sea was no great for surfing so I gave paddle boarding a go which I was not great at so came in and they only charged me the length of time I went out, which was a nice surprise. The beach was beautiful, very paradise-esque if you go to Nha Trang you must go here!!

A great place to relax and have drinks served by the adorable young french couple who owns the place. Take a surf or a paddle board while waiting for the fresh seafood lunch which you will grill on your own BBQ. Not many waves when I was there, but go in the fall for great surfing. If you're a beginner,... More
