Hon Thi Island is on the way to Nha Phu Lagoon for tourists who
are visiting Nha Trang but if you bypass this little gem you are missing out.
The island covers 500 hectares and its pristine beauty is a huge attraction for
tourists who are intrigued by the area and are keen to explore the riddles of
nature where human hands just touch a part of it.
About three kilometers from the land, Hon Thi is located in Ninh Ich Commune,
Ninh Hoa District, Khanh Hoa Province. So to get to the island, you can take a
boat from Da Chong Beach or from Ninh Ich Commune.
When you arrive there are flocks of deer and ostrich which you can feed, play
with and watch them run around the area. Along the island are also many stunning
beaches with many rock beaches. Along the beach are many sea vegetables, wild
flowers and many trees you’ve probably never seen before.
Inside the island, tourists will see a number of orchards with many kinds of
fruit trees such as guava, orange, dragon fruit, sugar apple and coconut.
The island is also home to fishing boats and many vestiges as it used to be a
temporary home for people when storms come. There is a small temple which was
built in 1998 and is dedicated to worship the sea god.
It is littered with rock gardens, piling up into caves so tourists can go on an
adventure with a flash light. However, the journey is not for the faint-hearted
just the brave and the bold. As the island is still primitive, you have to bring
your own food and drink.
