We were led to believe this was an marine park it was more like a theme park. The coral has been wrecked, no fish to be seen. There were even speedboats zooming around pulling paragliders. This area is being ruined not preserved!

Over crowded and not much to see so it may not be worth the trip. I believe that it is named after the Cham people.

I enjoyed my 3 days and 2 nights on Cham Island in one of the homestays. Quiet place, some traditional life, friendly people, beautiful little pagoda, peaceful.
