Less than 10 minutes away by automobile, they’re often packed with locals during weekends and public vacations. You can also find plenty of local restaurants serving fresh seafood and Da Nang specialties at affordable prices. Lounges and beach chairs are available for rent.

    If you prefer a quiet place during your vacation, Son Tra Peninsula is the place to go. Its main beaches are home to luxury resorts with fine-dining restaurants.

    Son Tra Peninsula is where you can find some of Da Nang’s most hidden beaches, such as Bai Bac, Tien Sa, and Con Beach. Located 12 km north of Da Nang, it’s also a natural reserve that’s home to the rare red-shanked doucs. When you’re here, make sure to visit Linh Ung Pagoda. Located on Son Tra (Monkey) Mountain, the stunning pagoda is known for its 67-metre-tall white statue of the Goddess of Mercy. Son Tra Peninsula also has a lookout point called Ban Co Peak. Do watch out for the bronze statue of Confucius, one of China’s most prominent philosophers.

    Tien Sa Beach is set on the western end of the Son Tra Mountains. It mainly houses fishing villages, but its peaceful setting is a good place for escaping the crowds. You can easily make your way here by motorcycle as roads to Son Tra Peninsula are empty on most days. Part of Tien Sa Beach is owned by a hotel of the same name, so if you’re not a guest, there's a small entrance fee. After a day at the beach, make sure to visit Linh Ung Pagoda and Ban Co Peak before heading back to Da Nang City.

    Nam O Beach is 17 km northwest of Da Nang City. It offers environmental boat rides to minority villages of Hoa Bac and Hoa Bang. The best time to visit Nam O Beach is from April to August. Waters are calm and clear enough for snorkeling and spotting marine life. If you’re a surfer, weather conditions are ideal between November and February. You can also find local restaurants serving mostly seafood dishes – we highly recommend goi ca, which is cured herring wrapped in rice paper, served with dipping sauce, fresh herbs and vegetables.

    Xuan Thieu Beach is a 20-minute drive from Da Nang Airport. The beach has a 15-km-long route that leads to the foot of Hai Van Pass, Vietnam’s highest mountain pass. This historical beach was used as a U.S. military zone in 1975, housing an airport and storage facility for military supplies. Today, you can find several beachfront resorts, seafood restaurants, and bars here. It’s also called the Red Beach because the reflection of the rising (or setting) sun turns the waters a vibrant crimson.

    It takes about 4 hours of moderate hiking from Bai Bac Beach to reach Son Tra or Monkey Mountains and the verdant jungle trails are great for spotting rare species. The mountain is home to rhesus macaques, long-tailed macaques, pygmy slow loris, and red-shanked douc langurs.
