Doc Let Beach with long and wide chalk-like sand with shallow water is located just 30 km north of Nha Trang city in Ninh Hoa village, Khanh Hoa province.
Pronounced “Yop-Lek,” Doc Let literally means "a hill one needs to crawl over." “Doc” means slope and “Let” represents the action of sliding down the slope.
Doc Let stretches over 10 kilometres and is largely undeveloped. Doc Let has the shallowest waters in all of Khanh Hoa Province. Along most of the beach, the sea is only half a meter deep even 100 meters from the beach. The crystal blue waters beckon even those who can’t swim, and time passes quickly as one luxuriates in the warm, tropical waters.
While most parts of Doc Let are free from tourist traps, a small stretch has been developed into the Doc Let Tourist Park. Fresh seafood stalls serve crabs, snails, clams, and squids under the shade of the casuarina trees dotting the beach.
