Dove past the beach on my way to another area. I could not believe the amount of development that is planned for this area. A place for the future

Water was nice, sand was hot and it is really close to food and drinks! If you're in the area, definitely check it out for a swim.

Located on the outskirts of the city, there are views west into the mountains, north to Danang Bay, and east to see the city skyline. The part of the beach we visited had very little in the way of facilities or touristy... More

A very nice beach although we didn't swim here. We visited it as part of a day trip in an open topped Jeep. It was the first point at which the Americans landed in 1965. It wasn't an attack as such, more of a setup PR stunt for the newspapers and LIFE magazine. History buffs will be interested.

Takes a long time to get there from downtown DaNang by motor bike or taxi. Not very clean beach. It is the Harbor water, not ocean. Surrounding housing of locals very low end poor area.

Okay so Red Beach is a longs ways out of Da Nang on the way to Monkey Mountain and on to Hue City but if you are headed in that direction...just stop and take a photo of Red beach because it was the spot where in 1965 the American Marines first waded onto Vietnamese soil and such began the American...
