This island is very beautiful, with romantic beaches, slow waves, and many small boats, including wooden boats and yachts.
The largest island, Cham Island, is circular, with an area of 13.17 square kilometers and two peaks. The highest elevation in the middle is 517 meters (1696 feet) and the highest in the west is 326 meters (1070 feet). The population is 3,000. It is a national tourist attraction. There are two fishing villages. Residents mostly rely on fishing. The corals, mollusks, seaweeds and other marine species in the surrounding sea are well-known all over the world. The scenery is beautiful and it is a tourist attraction.
Personally, I still like seafood cooked in Hainan, the same kind of seafood, Hainan is more delicious. But taste it when you go
It is more than 300 RMB to go to sea from Da Nang, which is cost-effective. Including shuttle bus, fast boat round trip, lunch, snorkeling, swimming and fishing with a boat, and tea on the island. Departed at 9 o'clock in the morning and returned at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. The sea water and the beach are acceptable. There are fishermen’s seafood on the island. They are sold in pots, cheap and in large bowls. Fishing is an experience, and the probability of catching it is very small. Snorkeling is a pity, I only see corals but no fish, and the water is not particularly clear.
For the half-day tour, I picked up at the hotel in Da Nang at 8 o'clock in the morning and pulled them to the Hoi An pier to go out to sea. Plastic bags were not allowed before going to the island. After arriving on the island, first visit the natural pavilion and temple, and then go snorkeling, come back for lunch, after the meal, lie down on the beach for a while and then return to the Hoi An Pier, and return to the hotel in the original order, almost 3pm. To be honest on Cham Island, due to strict environmental protection, the area open to diving is very small, corals have been bleached, and no fish can be seen. Compared with the few places I have visited, Semporna in Malaysia and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia are strange. However, the advantage of Cham Island is that it is less crowded and cheap, making it a good alternative to Thailand. Lunch is included in the cost, meat and vegetable seafood, although it is not a big meal, but it is well-matched and eaten well.
