There are usually motor-taxis hanging around the main hotels and at the bus and train stations. Talk to the receptionist at your hotel if you're having trouble scaring one up. It'll take a bit of effort to find one on the beach if things aren't busy, but it's possible to sort something out. Otherwise, motorbike rentals are cheap and easy, at 60,000 VND per day, making them the way to go if you know how to ride.
