The beach of Da Nang is looooong and UNcrowdy. With 30 km of sands there is plenty of space for everyone. Even though we haven’t seen anyone cleaning the main part of the city beach yet – it’s mostly clean and there are many crabs there that dig small holes. However if you step aside from the main beach the situation is different and it’s heart-braking to see these lovely beaches with trash piles all over.
The sand is very very nice to walk on and even drive on! Local fishermen drive their bikes and motorbikes on the stripe where the waves meet sand. We have even seen teenagers playing football on the wet hard-packed sand. So having our stroller with us on the beach is really not a problem. The problem is the baby, who doesn’t want to be in there. ;)
Local fishermen deserve a separate attention. But if we only had a penny for every second of the attention they pay to us we would be bathing in the money right now. :) But they are very nice to us and often show the fish or octopus they catch and kids love it. We are also very fascinated with their fishing boats – they are round and deep just like a giant soup bowl.
