Doc Let Beach
Approximately 50 kilometres (30 miles) north of the city of Nha Trang, Doc Let Beach is definitely worth the journey. Pronounced to sound closer to ‘yop lek’, the beach stretches for a total of 18 km (13 miles). It has white sands, palm trees offering natural shade, and mesmerizingly blue shallows perfect for younger children as well as the rest of the family.
Roughly divided into three sections, the northern third of Doc Let Beach is where you’ll find the majority of the beachfront hotels. The middle is occupied by a busy working port. Its southern end is the most isolated, and has the best run of sun, sea and sand. It’s sometimes called Jungle Beach.
Doc Let Beach has traditionally been relatively quiet, although this is slowly changing as more and more visitors discover its allure. For the moment it has held onto its serene and laidback vibe, making it a particular favourite with honeymooning and married couples looking to enjoy the sunsets and each other’s company rather than dance until dawn in a nightclub.
