First, as of Feb 2017, Bai Dai (Long Beach) is not underdeveloped, but it is "by standard western expectations" undeveloped at all! thus not for everyone. But from our (young couple) perspective, this was just "The Vietnam we wanted to visit". Nha Trang and Hoi An overcrowded with "Western/Russian" tourists, Saigon full of all around Asia tourists.. Bai Dai is... More

Went for a day visit with my wife. Had to make our own efforts to get menu and food. Owner (Brit I'd guess) came across as an ignorant sour puss. No regard for his customers. Seemed he was more focused on doing nothing rather than something. Place was dirty. When a table leaves they'd only clear it if someone else... More

We had oysters, crumbed calamari and seafood soup. All were delicious. The seafood (rice porridge) was the best I have had in Vietnam.

My husband and I wanted to get out of Nha Trang for the day we found The Shack but weren't sure how to get there. I messaged The Shack on Facebook, Tom the owner had a car collect us and drive us to where he is located. Wonderful day we had there from 11.00am to 6.30pm food was fantastic, surf... More

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
