What we have in Dai Lanh?
A broad sweep of sand between two dramatic headlands, Dai Lanh Beach is a strikingly beautiful spot. Eighty kilometres north of Nha Trang, this wide bay is framed by lush mountains, with the chalky sand beach between them washed by the pale blue waters of the East Sea. A fishing village nestles at one end of the bay, giving way to a casuarina-lined bathing beach at the other. Dai Lanh Beach makes an excellent overnight stop between Nha Trang and Quy Nhon, especially for anyone following one of my Saigon-to-Hanoi routes. The swimming is good, the fishing village is interesting, regular transport connections, some decent food stalls, and the bay is very scenic indeed. Dai Lanh also makes a good base from which to explore other fantastic beaches and sights in the surrounding area.
