Atmosphere

Upon arrival by plane look out the window and you will know if a northeast swell is wrapping around the islands and cliffs. The waves will also be visible when landing. Have your taxi driver stop, prior to venturing further to your hotel for a better observation. Language barriers can be a problem. Wearing a T-shirt with a surfer design helped me with my translation and within forty five minutes I was in the water with a Bic rental board. Mana Mana Watersports in Nha Trang provided me with a 7'8 board. $30 per day was not cheap but Than, the owner had the only boards in town. The board worked wonderful for 3 hours of lonely fun.

General

This was my second time to Nha Trang and the second time I noticed good waves at Bai dai from the plane window. Both trips were during different seasons of the year. Fortunately this time I took a better look. The wave was alot of fun and clearly has potential. The locals were nice, and very curious about surfing. The local children were wonderful spectators applauding with each ride. Beach cafes cooked great seafood at a very cheap price. A nice surf addition to a Vietnam scuba trip.

Bai Bai Beach Pics - The 2 pics showing the headland look like Son Tra near Da Nang. Anyone confirm ?

Misleading Photo should be Removed -
That cutback pic is NOT Bai Dai beach, NOT Nha Trang, NOT even in the same province as Nha Trang. I know because I was surfing that session. It's like showing a picture of a steak when all you can serve up is mushy hamburger. Stop trying to trick people.
