Only 13 km away from the center of Da Nang City, Son Tra Peninsula belongs to Son Tra District. This is a typical Vietnam tourism magnet along the coastline: fantastic, untouched natural scene with transparent sea, white sand, and mysterious primitive jungle with a vast diversity of plants and animals.
What to see and do
There are many famous beaches there, some of them have gained quite a fame recently such as North Beach, South Beach (whose names explain their position on the peninsula), and Buddha Beach (whose extraordinary name really interests hundreds of people). These beaches take turns to embrace the giant primitive jungle, which houses as many as thousands of precious plants and animals. Under the surface layer of the cool, refreshing seawater live a variety of fascinating coral reefs, which enable scuba diving services to develop in a steady, fast rate in the last few years.
If you ever have a chance to visit Son Tra Peninsula, do not forget to stay at one of the villages built on the mountains; those comfortablevillages not only overlook the beautiful beaches and jungles, but also provide you a fresh and invigorating atmosphere. Besides, you can always enjoy fishing and get to know the lives of the inhabitants whenever you want. Da Nang means Son Tra peninsula, so come and get the real feeling of a different Vietnam.
