Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Though development is underway on half a dozen resorts along China Beach, accommodation options are currently rather limited. The long-running, ever-popular Hoa's Place is an excellent option and the main draw for most travellers. There is also a four-star resort, Sandy Beach, less than a kilometre south of Hoa's, and more resorts on the way. There are several basic hotels located across the highway from the beach, of which we've listed one.

My Khe Beach
My Khe is the local name for the beach directly east of Da Nang, about 2 km from the Han River. There is some passable older accommodation here on the southern half of the beach, though you'll be paying more for location than for charm.

Son Tra Peninsula
There are two places with rooms on the peninsula, and they couldn't be more different from one another. High-end resorts are currently under construction further up the road.
