Hon Mun Island, Nha Trang

3.5
#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. A visit to Hon Mun Island represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Nha Trang trip builder to plot your vacation.

    First time we went on a trip to this island, composed of excursions to the southern islands. There has been a 40-minute swim is not in the best location, not rated. So in this release took a separate tour snorkeling, English. I don't know, maybe we were lucky, but in the group from CRIS, that we went there was not a single Chinese tourist, as Russians but us too. Maybe that's why everything is lively, fun, interesting. Visited 9 am places for swimming, there were three, and not far from each other, but they differed significantly in depth, and therefore on "mind and composition" underwater inhabitants. Are from the deep to shallow. And emotions were ascending. At last there was no scuba-divers (the first was about 7 boats, most Chinese tourists, but since this is diving, noise from them was not possible:) Yes, and places like it lacked everything.) Last swim we remembered about bread, pripasennyj us to fish, as a result, around us there was such a colorful dance that enthusiasm was boundless.

    We went diving to the island. My 15-year-old son are all very nice and warm sea, and clear water, and the chance to see live the sea and its many inhabitants. he dived several times and after each dive, his emotions were put forward encompassing. I would like to point out, he dived with scuba diving is not for the first time. But here he liked. I remained on board the ship, but even for me, neljubitelja, finding within the 6:00 in the sea was not tedious. I wanted to capture on camera and easy to remember and it's sea, some surprisingly powerful and friendly at the same time, and the sky above it, and bright green island.
