Here is an article about Danang beach written by Perdo from Spain
Beach on Danang written by Pedro from Spain
Danang City is located in middle of Central Vietnam. It’s the fifth largest city in Vietnam but it is becoming rapidly the third most important economic area of Vietnam after Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
Coming to Danang, visitors will experience the beauty of many wonderful seashores, spectacular-illuminated bridges across Han river and the astonishing landscape surrounding the city, with mountains fully covered by forest.
There are not only beauty landscapes and golden sand beaches. Da Nang is friendly and easygoing (sometimes maybe too much) and most locals are always willing to help.
Few years ago, the main motivation for most tourists staying in Danang was its proximity to the well-known historical cities of Hue and Hoi An, but in the last years, local authorities are trying to turn Danang into Vietnam's highest quality of life city.
The combination of old and new constructions in many parts of the city gives you a real sense of how much Danang has changed over the last decade. The roads are wide and the avenues that run along the riverfront and the seaside are clean and filled with charming coffee-shops, bars and restaurants.
State of the art bridges and luxury spectacular resorts are a good sample of Danang development.
The weather in Danang is quite different from the four seasons Hanoi weather and more similar to the all year round hot and sticky Saigon weather. There are two seasons: the raining season from September to December and the dry season from January to August.
Average temperatures are quite high, the highest in May-Aug, when temperatures gets easily 35ºC during the day and it doesn’t cool down too much at night; the lowest in Dec-Jan but rarely go down below 18ºC.
The city has a long coastline, covering several areas from Hai Van pass to Marble Mountain with many amazing beaches. Danang beaches have green clean water and gentle waves so tourists and locals can enjoy all year round.
Danang coastline has three areas:
1. Eastern Sea beaches
This slice of coast takes in three consecutive beaches. The 10 km of golden and soft sand have almost no slope and beautiful landscapes.
My Khe, located in the Son Tra district, very close to the city center, is the most crowed of Da Nang beaches and popular to local people.
Bac My An is the next beach, in the Ngu Hanh Son district, in the way to Hoi An, with a mix of crowed areas and more relax resort beaches.
Non Nuoc, also in Ngu Hanh Son district is opposite to the legendary Marble Mountains, better for solitary lovers.
This is the most developed beachfront in Danang. The beach has several hotels, many seafood restaurants and others services as motorbike parking, shower enclosure services and sunshade. Large numbers of local vendors go across the beach selling all kinds of food, drinks and a countless list of beach accessories you can imagine (don’t buy sunscreen lotion to them as it is possible you are buying a fake item). They can be irritating sometimes; if they are too insistent, you should completely ignore them since that is the best strategy.
The beach also has plenty of watersports services such as sailing, water-skiing, canoe, parasailing and others.
Lifeguard groups are at work all days from early morning to late evening to guarantee safety to visitors. These lifeguards can be a bit annoying for westerner tourists as the swimming skills of locals, specially the female collective, are not very impressive, and they try to keep everyone in a small area of the sea and very close to the water’s edge.
In East Asia, as opposite than in western world, pale skin is considered beautiful, and girls do everything to keep their skin from tanning. Many girls when driving (difficult to see a Vietnamese girl walking) dress in dark, hooded jumpers, long-sleeved shirts, gloves and scarves, even if the temperature is over 35ºC. The “ladies dress code” on the beach is as well very different in this part of the world. Bikinis are rare and swimming in jeans and t-shirt quite common.
As a consequence of all this, beaches are empty most of the day but in the very early morning (I mean very early, 5-6 am), and at sunset from 5-7pm. To be honest any other time it is not pleasant as the sunshine here is too strong.
2. Danang Bay beaches
Fishermen languidly cast nets over a huge bay as in the horizon the sun disappears behind the mountains. This is Danang Bay beach scenery.
Less developed and less polished than beaches in East Sea, Danang Bay beaches are a favorite destination for locals. The beach is not as wide and enjoyable than East Sea beaches but it is worth a visit.
3. Son Tra seashores
Northeast from Danang, is Son Tra peninsula. It is a low mountainous area fully covered by forest. Taking a tour to Son Tra, you may enjoy magnificent views of Danang City, the mountains and the sea. Son Tra is also offers a wide range of interesting water activities.
If you're looking for a isolated piece of paradise away from tourist masses you should visit this area. Around Son Tra there are many beautiful and remote beaches such as Tien San beach (near Danang port entrance) Rang, But and Thut beaches (near the Lady Buddha 67-meter-high statue) Bac beach (only for Intercontinental Resort guests), and few small beaches you can only reach by boat.

Jake's Experience with Motorbike Rental Services in Danang
Jake, an American expatriate, has worked as an English teacher in Danang, Vietnam for over a year.
Here is an interview about his experience with motorbike rental services in Danang City.
Motorbike for rent in Danang.
1. How long did you rent for? What kind of bike do you prefer to rent (manual or automatic)?
I've rented motorbikes many times for various periods of time. Sometimes just for 1 day, other times for over a week. I usually rent automatic.
2. How was your experience?
My experience was always quite good. The delivery was quick and easy. I always had to leave my passport as a deposit, which used to make me nervous, but they take good care of it. Perhaps there could be an alternative deposit: such as a passport copy or a monetary deposit.
Payment and pickup is usually easy too -- although I had a bad experience one time, in which they were late for pick-up and I had too leave for work, so they picked the bike up the next day and charged me an extra day for it, which was frustrating because it was their fault they didn't come the previous day, and I hadn't used it.
3. How was the price?
The price is very fair. Very competitive. It's generally the same price all around the city, which is especially good because they offer free drop-off and delivery. 120,000 VND/day.
4. How was the procedure to rent the bike? Complicated or easy?
The procedure is easy. The management speaks good English, and drop off and pick up is relatively prompt, but give yourself at least 30 minutes extra time.
5. How did you feel when driving a motorbike in Danang City (Compared with others place you have been)?
Da Nang is one of the best places to drive a motorbike in Vietnam. The roads are all excellent, well paved and spacious. The traffic is quite minimal (except around 7-8 AM, 11:30 AM, 3 PM, and 5-6 PM -- those are the main commuting times). Even during the rush hours the traffic is isolated to a few difficult places in the heart of the city. It's easy to build confidence and comfort along nearly all of the wide, empty roads of Son Tra, which stay empty nearly the whole day. The infrastructure is great, and the other drivers on the road are attentive and ready for nervous tourist drivers. Just be careful of trucks and taxis -- they will NOT stop for you.
Thanks Jake for the interview and wish you have a good time Other Things to NoteIf you want to enjoy the sea, sun, sand and security, and hospitality, come and stay at my apr. I hope you will make it your home and use the equipment and facilities as if they were yours.
