Why My Khe beach is special ?
My Khe Beach is located about 6km east of Da Nang and 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 besides, the Kinh River carries crystal water to the sea. The beach has coral, abundant plants and creatures along Bankside and undersea. 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 a little wave so you can bath all year's round, especially in summer from May to August. The lack of large waves, less than average pollution, and a mean annual 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.

Sit at the stall opposite the beach, enjoy the cheap Larue beer
My Khe has to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The sand is tan and very fine. You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas for a very low price. The beach is busiest from 4 AM until 9 AM as so many of the local residents go to the beach to exercise. It picks up again around 4 PM. At its busiest it is still not crowded. The water is warm and their are moderate waves.
've been to nicer beaches (Boracay and Sanya) but this is by far the best value for money. No touts at all. Cheap beach chairs (20k VND for chair and 40k VND for a sun bed). You can also eat along the beach (just need to ask for food menu). I got a seafood fried noodle for 90k VND. The beach is practically empty from 9am to 4pm. Lovely! Better go now before it becomes too commercialised! Catching the sunrise is far better as the sun sets behind the beach.
Ideal place for couples in romantic dates :))
