Hon Chong Promontory

The granite promontory resembles a giant’s playground, with enormous stone blocks haphazardly strewn about for visitors to traverse. Indeed, a wedged boulder at the site bears a hand-shaped mark on its side. Local legend has it that the print belongs to a fisher giant who fell off a cliff after being caught by the fairy he was spying on. It’s a nice spot to enjoy the sunset.

Bai Dai Beach

A relatively remote stretch of beach rising into sand dunes, Bai Dai is still unperturbed by high-rises or brick-and-mortar restaurants. A decent surfing spot for beginners, there is little in terms of urban establishments. Some makeshift food stalls serving seafood line the coast, but little else. Great for a quieter beach experience.

Distance: 29 km from hotel
Address: On the road to the airport, make a left at the roundabout with the large Vinpearl sign and head down the dirt track.

Hon Tre

There are several ways to cross over to the largest island off Nha Trang Bay. A ferry running every 30 minutes, a powerboat, a taxi canoe or the preferable method, the longest over-water cable car in the world, spanning the length of three kilometers. At Hon Tre you can marvel at the bay across the waters and try one of the numerous activities, including a theme park, water park, aquarium, a wealth of dining options and more.

Address: After choosing a method of transportation, ask the Novotel front desk team for directions to the appropriate harbour or station.

Sailing Club

Since its inception in 1994, the Sailing Club has been a staple of Nha Trang Bay, an all-encompassing evening spot that is part chic restaurant, part chill-out zone and part active dance floor. The open air venue features beachfront dining, eclectic beats and canopied beds. Come during an off-night for a low-decibel, laid-back evening by the bay, or join the crowds spilling into the sand for a night of live pumping dance music during peak nights.

Address: 72-74 Tran Phu Street

Hon Yen

Hon Yen consists of two islands – Hon Noi and Hon Ngoai – and is known for the swiftlet nests precariously perched along its cave walls.

Hon Mun
