0 votes
My Khe Beach is recognised as one of the most ideal beach of Da Nang City, international tourists came here for convalescence and relaxation...  Da Nang has a coastline of 30 kilometres long, famous for many beautiful seashores stretching from the north to the south such as My Khe, Nam O, Xuan Thieu, Thanh Binh, Tien Sa, Son Tra, Bac My An, Non Nuoc. They are calm seas with green water during four seasons, not being polluted with 60% salination and high safety. With 900 meters in length, My Khe Beach is the most crowded of Da Nang beaches and popular to local people. My Khe Beach is located about 6km east of Da Nang and about 24km north of Hoi An. It is a nine-kilometre stretch of smooth sand with an average width between 50m and 70m. The gradient is gentle, and its sheltered position in the lee of the Son Tra peninsula softens the autumn winds that restrict swimming further down the coast. It is an ideal and huge beach with smooth sand and a slight slope. Behind the beach is a dark green poplar forest, and beside, the Kinh River carries crystal water to the sea. The beach has coral, abundant plants and creatures along bankside and under sea. Especially, the beach is next to the city centre, in roads easy to come and by various means of transport. Sea water in My Khe is cool with little wave so you can bath all year's round, especialy in summer from May to August. The lack of large waves, less than average pollution, and an annual mean temperature around 25oC, makes it a safe place to swim for adults and children alike. The beach has hotels, pleasure-houses and various abundant services, creating favourable conditions for tourists to relax on the seashores. There are 50 well-equipped and comfortable bedrooms and lots of services in My Khe hotel. Many luxurious seaside villas with over 100 rooms are available for families. You can come here to play and rest at weekend. Around the hotel area, there is plenty of seafood restaurants and stalls, and large numbers of local vendors traverse the beach selling all kinds of foods and drinks. Coastal specialties like shrimps, crabs, fish, cuttles, etc. in hundreds of small shops are at reasonable price. They can be irritating sometimes – if they are too persistent, you should ignore the nuisance since that is the best strategy. American soldiers occupied a part of the beach before 1975. They established some premises for their relaxation and recreations. With some enabling conditions such as being near the city’s center, large space, beautiful landscapes, and qualified services (hotels, restaurants, vehicles keeping site, fresh water bathing, sunshade and buoy lease), My Khe Beach is now convenient for developing kinds of services such as fishing, water-skiing, diving, yatch race and so on. Moreover, the safeguard team of Da Nang seashore work from 5 a.m to 8 p.m every day to guarantee safety for visitors to bath and relax on the beach. There has been a steady increase in the number of tourists visiting the beach. Han River suspension bridge was completed, it links the east to the west area, making transportation possible. As a result, My Khe Beach becomes an attractive resort, a really very good beach!

Nice and quiet beach but there seemed to be nothing around at the time. This is a remote area so not actually very many services on offer. I think the beach in Danang is nicer

This almost empty and really nice beach is a perfect little stop for sun bathing if you're going from hoi an to hue!! Stopped for an hour or so, no surf sadly, but still really enjoyed this pristine almost empty beach!!

Nice beach with a very long stretch of sand, plenty inexpensive deck chairs for hire and the ladies will get you a drink or food if you require.An abundance of seafood restaurants serving fresh(still alive in the bowls on display) food all along the sea front.

Danang Beach is among top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world so I dont have to say much about it. I went here with my HK friend during winter so it was a bit cold for swimming n we were not allowed to do so. Anyways, we enjoyed the view and took some crazy pictures. One of the highlight for my friend's trip

I have not body surfed in a long time but felt safe body surfing here. There is a lifeguard who keeps watch that everyone stays in the safe areas of the water. There is like a sand bar that is great for starting out.

There are lounge chairs and beverages available. There steps leading down to the beach and water. Warning signs are up to keep everyone in a safe area for swimming.

We went swimming around 7 AM and the water and beach were perfect. Around 7:30 AM the fishermen were pulling in their nets on the beach. It is fun to watch and see what they bring in. We saw a huge jellyfish and lots of small fish, which is sold to the restaurants within a couple of blocks of the ocean.

The beach is not crowded at this time of the day. My daughter enjoyed collecting shells and making sand castles.

Good:
Water Level is an amazing miracle, even you walk around 10 meter from the sand, the water level is still around 150 cm

Wave is good, give you excitement

One beach is connect to another beach, they link together

They circle some area for swimming, some for water sports, good accident and risk management

Bad:
No, at this moment

Hints:
Bring camera and go at sun set time
Pay VND4000 ( I forget the exact price) for taking a shower or you may wash when you back to Hotel

We only stopped for a short stop to walk through the sand and water and take some pics. It is a beautiful spot. This is what the Americans called China Beach during the war.
