Another 5km east of Loc An, you'll pass by a lovely stretch of sand that's still rather undeveloped. The big draw of this area is the fairly new Ho Tram Osaka Resort & Spa (bungalow and breakfast US$72-160; a peaceful, beautifully landscaped complex sprinkled with attractive bungalows. Each has high ceilings and unique furnishings and layouts (the best are duplexes with beach views). There's also a spa, a beach bar and an open-sided restaurant (mains 80,000d to 120,000d) that's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and is well worth visiting if you're passing through the area.
