Uninhabited island lures adventurers to Phu Yen
Pristine Hon Nua Island, an off-the-beaten-track holiday destination in south-central Phu Yen Province, is gaining popularity among adventurous travelers.
With scores of charming beaches and islands dotting the country's south-central region, few travelers know of gem-like Hon Nua Island.
From Ho Chi Minh City, you can take a bus or motorbike to Dai Lanh Beach in Khanh Hoa Province, then travel a little further to Vung Ro Bay in Phu Yen, and from here hail a boat to the island for about VND250,000 ($11) per person for a round trip.
Hon Nua is uninhabited, and suited to short weekend trips.
The dry season, from December to April, is an ideal time to visit Hon Nua, referred to as the mini Maldives of the central region.
Visitors are suggested to spend a day on the island immersed in the clear blue waters, go diving or catch sea urchins.
The island offers fabulous views across the surrounding bays, especially at either dawn or dusk.
Those planning to spend a night barbequing and camping on the island could ask boat owners to pre-purchase fresh seafood from local fishermen.
All visitors are reminded to clean up after themselves to ensure Hon Nua remains its pristine self.
