“NICE BEACH, BUT BEWARE....!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

As we were staying at the Riverside resort they had their own stretch of beach, which was OK i suppose but I'm not a beach person anyway, unfortunately for me though my wife is. So while she was sunbathing i went for a walk along the beach and to my great shock almost stood with bare feet on a discarded syringe needle complete with empty contents bottle. I can only imagine what might have happened had a child either stood on it or picked it up, it's not what i expected at all on this lovely beach so please take care here as it seems there are idiots everywhere even on holiday..!
The beach itself was pretty good apart from an off shore breeze blowing in constantly but that aside there were plenty of bamboo shelters and tables not to mention the restaurants if you felt hungry enough, also the local waiters kept you well supplied with cold drinks including my favourite the fresh coconut. As for the much maligned hawkers you must remember there is no welfare system in Vietnam so you will notice they are all older women trying to make a living selling trinkets, snacks etc, and are completely harmless it also dosen't hurt to buy something like fresh bananas or some peanuts, it is literally loose change to us, but a lot to these poor people you will also find they are very friendly and not aggressive in the slightest.!
This beach is definitely worth a visit if you're into beaches as for swimming you will find the shore line is quite shallow and depending on the weather is safe enough for swim or a jet ski, it also gets really hot here so mind the sun cream..!

“A beautiful long white beach with day beds and local restaurants”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

It is very peaceful compared to other beaches say in Bali, but now there are a few hawkers sneaking in and if you walk past one of the restaurants on the beach they all come running out to try and grab you to come to theirs. A bit annoying but still okay

“Cua Dai Beach”
Reviewed 12 October 2012

Is a lovely long beach dotted with beach chairs, bamboo umbrellas and small plastic table and chairs to sit at (if you pay) and eat local food. A nice place to while away some hours.

“beach”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

Nice and clean. It was stormy, but we loved that too. Its easy to reach there by bicycle. In sunny day they dont allow to take bicycle to the beach. Opportunity to earn money for parking - good idea.
