We did a 4 island tour and this was one of the islands we went to. We did a private tour, and thank God we did. This was our favorite spot from the 4 beaches so we stayed longer here. White sand and crystal blue water surrounded by stunning sea life. Amazing!

At least not as crowded as the others but still need a 30 minute boat ride. Total cost per person 300+400 “park fee”. Kind of a ripoff because the park personnel probably pocket the cash but don’t clean the island very well. Same at all the islands and boat-access islands.

Go early and/or at low tide. Minimal services or shade. No alcohol allowed.

Poda Island is arguably the best in So Nang. We went there as a part of our four island tour . The other islands covered were chicken island and other two which I don't remember.
Poda is the best of yelp lot. It has clean white beach but the sand is mainly corals pieces and one can literally swim with the fishes there. My kids enjoyed so much splashing in the water and trying to touch the fishes. It's a beautiful island and most of the tour operators stop for around two hours here. It has coffee shops, refreshments shops also. My favourite !!

Beautiful island fine golden sands and clear water a stunning beach may see fish if you like snorkelling part of the national park so you have to pay a fee to go on the island around £10.00per person

I loved Poda Island. The sand is white, water is crystal clear and it is peaceful and calm. We arrived at Poda around 9am by private boat so it seems we were well ahead of the crowds. We had a section of the beach entirely to ourselves. Make sure you take a snorkel mask - there is a coral reef with an amazing variety of fish to see! The beach had some nice shady spots too so you can escape from the sun.
