Hon Mun Island, Nha Trang

3.6
#4 of 10 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.

  • Nice island, we recommend renting a private boat for half (or whole) on and off from Nha Trang to the quiet island with perfect atmosphere, clear blue water and the Sun. Spectacular dives, diving is also available.

  • We had a lovely day but this place is nothing special and it's expensive to get to. Our snorkelling guide did his absolute best and the people are lovely...but I just don't want to swim or snorkel in ...  more »
  • I didn't know you'd be diving in Trang. Personal to disappointment. 2 arrange the day and say. Of course, diving for the first time are those that will be.

  • We stopped here as part of the 4 Island tour in Nha Trang and this island was probably my favorite. The water was super warm and clear, and it was such a fun experience to go snorkeling. I did wish we saw more coral reefs and fishes though.
  • 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
  • Diving
  • The featured Ebony with black rocks and water are very in, with diverse sea ecosystems
