The owner of the shack received us like kings. The food is local and awesome (we strongly recommend the deep fried calamari). Tom is very good at teaching surf and you can rent all kind of material (surf, paddle, bodysurf...). Last but not least, the owner is very very chill and helpful. He has been living in Nha Trang for... More

Really laid back casual venue. Food and service was good. Owner organised a cab which was handy. Beach for locals mainly. They could clean it up a bit .

The shack is a bit of a ways outside of Nha Trang, on the corner of a VERY long soft sandy beach. When the weather cooperates you can catch some small waves and play in the surf. I have visited twice now and on both occasions greeted like long lost family. Super warm people and Ice cold beers. Does any... More

Big thanks to Tom at the shack for a very memorable day scuba diving off the islands followed by jet skis and cold beers at the shack. The majority of the group were completely new to diving, with one member of the group not so confident at swimming in general. Tom made us all feel very safe and comfortable through... More

Tom (the owner) started our day with a trip in the morning/afternoon scuba diving in hom mun which I would highly recommend. We then got a short taxi to the shack which is perfectly placed on the beach, serves tasty food with great service. Tom was always on hand to sort us out with jet skis and everything else we...

Me and my fiance had the most amazing time there. Could not believe how good the atmosphere was. We had the best cocktails and some really chilled beer. It's a must stop if your travelling through Vietnam. But what made it extra special was the fact that the local owner of the bar took us for a scuba dive in... More

Just a short, beautiful drive from Nha Trang is The Shack and it's beautiful private (place to party) beach. From amazing smoothies, cocktails and ice cold beer to having a delicious bacon burger, nothing beats a day with mates here. Such cool people working there to make sure you have a good time (and a tequila)!

The Shack was a great place to get a drink with a good variety of food. Nice seafood and cheap cold drinks! A nice relaxed vibe with a great view and friendly people. There were not many tourists while we were there and was well worth the visit away from the crowds of Nha Trang.

The shack is an awesome place to grab a drink(s) and a good burger. On a nice beach a bit outside of the main Nha Trang. Well worth the visit. Get there around lunchtime or early afternoon
