Located 4 km to the east of Hoi An old town, the beach of Cua Dai is about 3 km long, 1 km of which is ideal with white sand, blue sea, clear, sunshine, cool water and sloping sea floor. Therefore it is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Central Viet Nam. Along the beach is a stretch of willow trees. From very early in the morning, the living force of fishing villages is going on vividly and impressing while early swimmers from town come to the beach in great numbers.
Da Nang Beach extends north and south of the Marble Mountains and was made famous by the war and subsequent TV series. Da Nang Beach is within cycling distance of Da Nang and it was this close proximity that led to it being used as an R&R destination for American soldiers during the war. It is a long beach that stretches all the way down to Cua Dai beach at Hoi An, though you will get a larger surf at Da Nang Beach. Da Nang Beach actually hosted Vietnam’s first International Surfing Competition in 1992.
