Located on Okaloosa Island, the Crab Trap Boardwalk provides visitors with a fishing pier, lifeguards, multiple volleyball courts, and pristine white sand beaches.
This local hot spot is often crowded due to its proximity to the world-famous Crab Trap Restaurant.
Home of the famous Bacardi Bucket, delicious crab dip, and seafood gumbo.
The bay has been touted as the next big tourist thing for years now, and it’s not difficult to see why: there are miles upon miles of stunning and largely unspoilt coast.
Despite this beauty, and its proximity to Nha Trang, most travellers pass it by, zipping through Cam Ranh International Airport (CXR) on their way to the big smoke further north.
While the city still has very little tourist infrastructure, Cam Ranh however will appeal to intrepid travellers who love beaches and aren’t afraid of independent exploration.
There are adequate (though by no means fancy) hotels in town and, like Nha Trang to the north, Cam Ranh benefits from a long dry season, lasting from around February to September.
