Beautiful place, with fragile ecosystems that need us to be careful while enjoying them... I hope that some amazing and serious Ecotourism will take place there to provide sustainable opportunities of income to the locals there, so much potential... it needs to be kept intact!

A number of plastic at the beach area. Went with a tour, and arrived at about 0930. The sand walkway can't be seen, but is shallow enough to be walked on.

We went for a one-day trip to main island. Because of tide, we could not walk from island to island. Much damage after typhoon Damrey, but really nice small restaurants and possibility for camping. Relaxing atmosphere and worth the visit😎

The localization is perfect to visit when there is low tide. You can walk from island to island perfect for couples who want to walk around and explore. The bungalow is a reasonable price to stay overnight, simply keep in mind there is no electricity....More

we went end of January, the tide was very high. Best time is early morning, last speed boat leaving island its 1pm. December maybe risky, I am told best time is summer. Very easy to get speed boat (20 mins ride).

5-6 am is the best time for low tide. So you should go there very early in the morning then you will have much time to enjoy and take photos.

Yes! Just go straight on 1A national road to Vạn Giã boat station, then take a canoe there.
