When the sun rises, the water’s surface glitters in the early morning sunlight, and the mountains wake up green, creating a lively scene, while everything takes on a coat of stillness and tranquility when the sun goes down.

Many beach sports operators can be found directly on the public beach and along the coastline of resort strips, where you can try any game you want with the help of their detailed guide and safety equipment.
- Trying fresh seafood: Eating seafood is a must when visiting any beach. My Khe Beach Da Nang offers a diverse selection of seafood to suit your tastes. Many seafood restaurants along the Vo Nguyen Giap coastal road have reasonable seasonal menu prices.
- Swimming is permitted daily from 5 AM to 8 PM, with lifeguards on duty to ensure your safety.
- Rip currents are expected on Da Nang’s beaches, so look for their warning signs: spots in the water that are darker than their surroundings, small and still sea waves, and bubbles or floating debris that may appear on the surface of the rip currents.
- Be wary of jellyfish. Their growing season is in the summer. When jellyfish attack your hands or legs, gently wash them with seawater and cover them with sand from the beach. This is a fishing tip that has been passed down through generations.
