A good friend recently treated my family to a dream holiday and one we will never forget.

We were told to head to Nha Trang airport before we were taken for a 90 minute ride by car to a resort in Dong Hai Hamlet.

It was located right on the beach, making it a good place to relax with a book or listen to some music on your ipod at the beach or small swimming pools closer to hand.

I must say that it is hard not to fall in love with this area of Vietnam at first sight and once you have been mesmerized by the natural splendor, you won’t want to go home. As I write this I wish I was still back there, no motorbikes or noise or polluted streets, lovely.

From the moment the family arrived we were transformed. Surrounded by crystal clear water, jagged cliffs and pristine white beach, any worries about work or life in general we had seemed to evaporate into thin air.

We stayed in an airy bungalow which was simply designed with plenty of space.

When we ventured out at night, we had the most delicious fresh seafood near Doc Let Beach which was only a few minutes away.

Of course the great thing about the resort is that you can be so lazy and sit around all day enjoying the beach which is only a few minutes away.

The highlight of the trip, though, was Minh Hai Fishing Village with its swaying palm trees and hundreds of boats moored on the water.

A very picturesque area but also a humbling experience as you realize how much the local people rely on fishing for their livelihood.

We also spent a few hours at Cho Hai San Seafood Market and salt field and had a go at scuba diving and jet skiing for the first time. It was such an amazing experience that everyone has to try at least once in life.

Our resort was located in Ninh Hai District, Ninh Hoa Town, Hon Khoi Port, Khanh Hoa Province which is situated about 50 km from Nha Trang. We can’t wait to go back.
