The South Central Coast, or Nam Trung Bộ, is one of the regions of Vietnam. It consists of the independent municipality of Đà Nẵng and five other provinces: Quảng Nam, Quảng Ngãi, Bình Định, Phú Yên, and Khánh Hòa.

The coastline of this region has many bays and inlets of the South China Sea. Algae frames the southern bays, while those further north are clearer,  including Cam Ranh Bay, a deep-water bay in the province of Khánh Hòa.

Cam Ranh is considered the finest deepwater shelter in Southeast Asia. The continental shelf of Southeast Asia is relatively narrow at Cam Ranh Bay, bringing deep water close to land.
