Scuba diving in Nha Trang

 

Nha Trang is Vietnam's premier beach resort with a couple of kilometers of relatively pristine white beach and several hotels catering to both local and foreign tourists. For a country with such a long coastline it seems surprising that Nha Trang is the only diving hub along it. There are a couple of local islands off shore that offer some interesting diving possibilities and most dive operators here also run to the more remote locations. Big animals are hard to find here (apart from the local morays) but the abundance of marine life makes fascinating diving. Nha Trang is more renowned for its vibrant nudibranchs and extensive coral biodiversity, over 350 species of coral can be found here. 
Nha Trang scuba diving, Vietnam
There are several offshore islands but the majority of Nha Trang's scuba dive trips go to Hon Mun island.
This is the island where all dive sites already mentioned in the Nha Trang section are located. It also has a couple of other sites such as Rainbow Reef and Tiger Wall. There are some shallow spots which offer good night diving and a smaller southern island called Hon Mot with a could of good dive sites. 

There are no wrecks around the islands of Nha Trang as everything above 50 meters has been salvaged by locals.
