Cam Ranh is located in the Cam Ranh Bay; an inlet of the South China Sea and the site of the former US military Naval base. US army Vietnam War veterans avail cheap flights to Cam Ranh to revisit the city that holds many memories of their War exploits during the Vietnam War.
Cam Ranh International Airport is the fastest route to reach Cam Ranh City. Many cheap flights to Cam Ranh serve the airport. Most of these tourist passengers head to the beach near Cam Ranh. If you take the Phan Rang-Thap Cham route 1A, it will take you to travel around 11 kilometers before reaching a paved road towards the two beach destination. The first is more like of a farm fish with breathtaking views of the Bay and from here with about another 6 kilometers travel, you'll reach the mango groves and finally the beach. You can stay here for some refreshments before heading to Binh Tien beach. The beauty of the beach is worth hours of dirt road. You can take your lunch here and eat a sumptuous meal of squids, sea snails and oysters.
Unfortunately the beach is not nearby hotels in Cam Ranh and you need to travel by motor taxi. You must make arrangements with the driver to wait for you. The fare isn't fixed so you should know how to negotiate. From the beach you can head to Dao Binh Ty to enjoy other small beaches in the Island. But if you can have your own transport, it's the most ideal way to explore the city and its nearby beaches. If you happen to get stuck in the beach (there’s no transport back to the city) turn to the locals and they’re always willing to get you hitch on their fishing boat. Many tourists have good words for the locals because they’re friendly and very accommodating. They would not even charge you for a fee but will accept any amount willingly given to them.
Since English is not well spoken in the city, it is better to have Phrase book in order to get easily your points to the locals.
