Hon Mun Island, Nha Trang

3.6
#4 of 8 in Nature in Nha Trang
Hon Mun Island attracts snorkelers and scuba divers with its clear warm waters and the abundance of tropical fish, sea turtles, crabs, and lobsters swimming through colorful coral reefs. The island got its name from the ebony-black caves hidden below the high cliffs at its south-east end, with flocks of migrating swallows building their nests in these caves every year. If diving isn't your thing, board a boat with a transparent bottom and comfortably explore the diverse marine life without getting wet. When you work up an appetite, enjoy some freshly cooked seafood from the mobile beach vendors.

  • Island is very cool also very dirty, the scenery can also, but not recommended diving, underwater scenery is very general, the first dive under no fish, and turbidity, the second dive deeper than the first dive, fish than before a little more, but the species is very few, diving is not recommended

  • Participated in the four island tour of the day Regiment, in fact, we did not on the Black island, just in the sea area beside the island snorkeling, you will see very beautiful coral, there are a large number of tropical fish, is a very dreamy underwater world! It doesn't matter if you don't swim, just wear a lifejacket.

  • A bit of floating rubbish but everything else is awesome. Turquoise water, variety of fishes and generally nice weather
  • Snorkeling is mediocre - the sea isn't clear, certainly not like in the brochures. Don't go for a half day ride, which includes unnecessary stops to and from the island. Just find someone to take you there (20 minutes by speed boat) and back
  • The featured Ebony with black rocks and water are very in, with diverse sea ecosystems
