Da Nang’s My Khe beach was voted as one of the 6 most attractive beaches on the planet by Forbes magazine. My Khe beach stretches over 900 km, attracts big crowds of locals and tourists more than any other beaches in Da Nang. With its perfect white silky sand and ideal location, just a-few-minutes car ride from the city center, this beach is the most chosen for unwinding, swimming, playing water sports after a long hard working day by many Danangers living midtown and travelers who want to have a relaxing beach holiday. Your very first impression on My Khe beach would be its extremely clean, clear, and warm blue seawater, endlessly stretching smooth white sand, gentle waves (best for safe swimming), blue sky, and tall coconut trees on the seaside.
Best time to visit My Khe Beach
It is best recommended to be from April to September as during those summer months, the water will not be too cold and the beach will not be too windy for swimming and doing other water sports activities. For beach lovers and beach holidaymakers, that time is perfect for contemplating the beach’s most complete beauty.
In addition, during national holidays, especially April 30 – May 1, tourists would overflow My Khe beach and make it very crowded. You should consider coming here later than that time (June or July if possible) for a calmer atmosphere and avoiding too touristy state.
My Khe beach– Safe zone to swim
Pham Van Dong Central Park beach zone
This zone stretches from the junction of Pham Van Dong Street and Vo Nguyen Giap street (the most coastal road). Because this area is mainly used as a public park for ashore activities like a big outdoor playground, gathering space, music performance stage, the beach, therefore, is quite small, but a bonus is that it has just so fine white sand, perfectly clear blue seawater, and smooth waves.
T20 – T18 beach zone
This is the very first beach zone that was discovered, visited, and enjoyed by most locals and tourists among other zones belonging to My Khe beach. This beach is very close to Marble mountains – a hot tourist spot that used to be the venue for an international surfing tournament. The beach here is deeper with stronger and bigger waves which are so ideal for young people who enjoy some “beach thrills” and water sports.
1 – 2 – 3 beach zone
This one was zoned by the city authority for its best safety and beauty features, also the most crowded area ever since. Therefore, it is more fully invested with all accompanying necessary services such as large parking lot, lockers for personal belongings, freshwater bath, refreshments, beach rescue, and environmental sanitation. The beach has a spacious charming sandy coastline filled with subtle tides. This zone is the safest for, especially children and the elderly.
One of the reasons for this zone being a more recommended spot is that Da Nang’s beach lifeguard rescues teamwork from 5 am to 8 pm every day to ensure people at the beach to be safe. Thanks to that effort, the number of tourists visiting the beach kept increasing steadily in the last years.
