Ninh Van Bay

Ninh Van Bay - Vietnam
© Simon Dannhauer

The beach at Ninh Van Bay arcs around a small inlet facing the southwest on the South China Sea in south-central Vietnam. Occupying such a beautiful bay it is known for its luxurious hotel escapes. Large rocks with softened edges sit in the shallows at the base of jungle-clad mountainsides running down to the sands as if deliberately placed where they would be most aesthetically pleasing.

While close to Nha Trang, there is no road access to Ninh Van Bay. This means you’re limited to arriving by water, which is no bad thing as it’s where you’ll likely to spend most of your time in any case – either on a kayak or stand-up paddleboard.

It also means that this stretch of clean tropical sand is yours for the taking, without the crowds that can form on other beaches in the area.
