What Is Non Nuoc Beach?

Non Nuoc beach (Bai bien Non Nuoc) is a 8-kilometers-long stretch of fine sandy, non-stop coastline in Da Nang, south of world-famous My Khe beach and north of Hoi An’s beach. This series of beaches lengthens 30 kilometers in total, and is known as the Riviera of Vietnam. Its scenery is absolutely stunning, with white powdery sands, turquoise seawater, lush coconuts, Son Tra peninsula with a tall Buddha statue to the left, offshore Cham islands to the right, and a brilliant sunrise. Many premium international and domestic hotel brands are based here.

This beach is named after Non Nuoc mountains, the first name of the Marble Mountains which is not far away. It’s popular to locals but isn’t known well by tourists. In the legend, a giant dragon from the sea lays an egg on Non Nuoc beach and then it breaks when the baby is borned. Pieces of the shell become marble mountains. In later times, people extracted stone here to carve sculptures and accessories for exportation.

Non Nuoc Beach vs My Khe Beach

Nuoc Nuoc beach and nearby My Khe beach share the same coastline, with similar qualities of sand, water, waves, and scenery. Both are long and non-stop, providing fine sandy expanses bordered by not-deep, safe and crystal-clear seawater. Definitely, these beaches are suitable for all ages. Watching the sunrise is equally fascinating. To go to Da Nang city centre, Hoi An or other main attractions, My Khe beach is a little bit closer but the extra from Non Nuoc beach will be not much to think about.

However, Non Nuoc beach has something different from My Khe beach. The better one depends on personal likings and purpose of travel. Firstly, Non Nuoc beach is more peaceful because it’s nearly private. Large resorts and other constructions are perfect ‘space’ to prevent noise from traffic and the city in the surroundings. My Khe beach is 100% public, and it’s just at the doorstep of numerous high-rise hotels. In the summertime, it’s full of visitors and swimmers. For those who love a slower experience (or escape from the city), this is not a good choice to stay over.

To join outdoor water activities, My Khe beach is nicer to go to because it draws crowds. For the same reason, there are more seafood restaurants here. About the price, almost every hotel along Non Nuoc beach is more expensive than the other. Many globally famed brands to choose from, and if a member, sure you have promotions and use your own membership privileges.

Non Nuoc Beach vs Hoi An Beach

Hoi An’s coastline is 8 kilometers long, including Ha My beach, An Bang beach, Tan Thanh beach and Cua Dai beach. Among them, Ha My and Cua Dai beaches have many resorts and luxury hotels like Non Nuoc beach. The first one is home to Four Seasons The Nam Hai Resort, and the second one is where Victoria Beach, Palm Resort, KOI Resort, Sunrise Premium or Vinpearl Resort stands. Due to recent erosion, sadly Cua Dai beach losts its strip of sand and it’s just ‘remade’. Some travelers say that there is nothing much left here, so to avoid disappointments, Non Nuoc beach should be chosen to stay and laze on. Options for accommodation in Ha My beach are limited.  

An Bang beach and Tan Thanh beach have a fishing village vibe. During the day, local people come to these communal (public) beaches to go swimming, play sports, do exercise, eat or just cool down. During the local high tourist season, summer months, crowds appear and they’re full of people. Meaning that it will be busier than Non Nuoc beach. Once again, for more relaxation, Non Nuoc beach is still the first pick.

Dining options in An Bang and Tan Thanh beaches are more diverse, covering local, international and fusion cuisines. Family-run restaurants there absolutely serve authentic Vietnamese flavours. When the dark falls, it’s more ‘social’ at beach clubs and bars in Hoi An.


Non Nuoc Beach or Son Tra Peninsula’s Beaches

Son Tra peninsula is to the north of Non Nuoc beach and Da Nang city. It extends 44 km2, and has a rugged coastline studded with private, non-touristy beaches and coves. The easy-to-access ones are along the southern side of the peninsula, such as Bai Nam beach, Bai Rang or Bai But below the Lady Buddha. In Bai Rang, visitors can even go snorkeling. Here, seafood restaurants serve delicious dishes from sunrise to sunset. However, if not an explorer or don’t have time, Non Nuoc beach will be better because this stretch of sand is next to the hotel. Sure, the guests don’t need any transfer or entry fee.

There is a famed hotel in Son Tra peninsula – the Intercontinental Da Nang sun peninsula resort. It has sea-facing villas with pools along contours of a mountain which embraces an emerald bay. A private long beach is down there, featuring blue water, white sand and palm trees. Compared to Non Nuoc beach, this one is further than the city and its airport. But it’s absolutely more isolated, perfect to get rid of the stress.
