Why Golden Sand Tourist Site is special

Golden Sand Tourist Site is located at Son Tra Peninsula with an area of the 10,000 meter square. It’s a new attraction in Da Nang City.

Golden Sand has a long sandy coast with crystal clear beach and a diversity of plants and animals. You coming here will have the chance to experience the feeling of under the fresh water of the streams, playing on the beautiful beach or enjoying the beauty of the wild nature in different moments.

What to explore at Golden Sand Tourist Site

Idyllic little grass roofed wooden huts line the top of sandbanks attended by a small Vietnamese homestead, the only building in sight. For a small and likely negotiable price, you can make use of the kayaks and banana boats on the shoreline. A zip line flies down the sloping beach and plummets riders into the cool clear water. The homestead is well stocked with beer to ensure no one goes thirsty.

The cove protects the beach from waves and currents so the waters spread out glass like and smooth, perfect for a swim or a long paddle around in a kayak. The still water of Golden Sand Tourist Site sets a nice scene for snorkeling and it’s rumored the fishing is pretty good. Sea snails and abalone make a home of the rocks and cliffsides on either side of the cove.

Golden Sand Tourist Site is well worth the trek through the jungle and down the far side of Son Tra Peninsula. An undisturbed slice of beach side serenity waits for anyone willing to take on the rough climb.

How to get to Golden Sand Tourist Site

The beach can only be accessed via motorbike or a long rough hike. Neither makes for an easy time. Bike tires skid on the loose sand and rocky inclines challenge the shocks. Hikers break a quick sweat on the way down. The path ends at a stone stairwell that disappears further down.

Around the last bend the golden sands stretch the arc of the small cove flanked by cliffs and rock outcroppings with dense jungle behind.
