The beach itself is nice, with shallow water and white sand, but there is way too much garbage and plastic everywhere sadly... also then people who owns the sunbeds is too eager to sell, so before you even enters the beach, the approach you. If...More

The place is even busy on cloudy and rainy days. Again easy to get to by your motorbike. If you can scam it get to the paradiso private beach, buy a drink or they charge you hundred thousand dong for parking.

I would imagine maybe 30 years ago this beach was a gem. I am sure it provided white sands and crystal clear water. Well... those days are long gone. It is dirty, polluted and overcrowded. They have set up these hideous kids jumpy things. Jet...More

The beach was very clean, turquoise water, lot of palmtrees and nice to swim. If you want to rent a chair it's around 100.000VND.

They need to do big effort for cleaning the place regularly. It was so busy you didn t feel relaxed.

Calm water beach with nice white sand and palm trees, more developed than one might have hoped. Good for swimming though.

Very crowded beach with Asain people all over the place. Lots or garbage everywhere, dirty toilets. We paid 200k for 2 sunbeds and 1 umbrella. Depends what you are looking for, but we advise going to a different beach.

It would have been a very beautiful beach, with fine white sand, clear water that you can see some fishes. If not for the loads of garbage piled at the side. It is heartbreaking to see such a pretty place mercilessly polluted by irresponsible human....More

Ask your hotel to call a taxi and they will take you there. We spent all day there and the taxi just waited for us all that time we were there, we asked him to do that and paid him for the entire day. I'm glad we did that... More
