Binh Hung Island
Binh Hung is one of the beautiful islands in the deep-water bay of Cam Ranh (Khanh Hoa province).
On your freshly foot set on the island, you will be attracted by the transparent blue sea and white sand beach. The beaches are not as long and wide as in Mui Ne or Nha Trang but always clean that the bottom is incredibly visible.
It is not deep for you just need to wade a few dozen meters, the water surface is already at chest-level, and you can see coral reef with your untrained-eyes. Especially, spreading on the beach are numerous multi-color odd shaped rocks which draw your attention to contemplate the meaning for a while. What a good choice to idle away!
The island also has over-100-year-old Hon Chut lighthouse and dubbed Cam Ranh Bay’s “tree” of lights. Standing on the lighthouse, you can observe the hustle and bustle of the boats on Cam Ranh harbor overlooking the immense sea of small fishing boats, which look like the toy from the distance.
As a fishing village, seafood is always fresh. You can rent a boat to visit fishermen’s cages and enjoy the food right there. In particular, these vessels have a clear glass bottom, so you can make a move and enjoy the beauty of the coral simultaneously.
Binh Tien Island
With the blue sea and long stretch white sand forming the charming road adjacent to Nui Chua national park … Binh Tien sea will give you a feeling of peace and tranquility between life rush.
Binh Tien Beach as a green pearl in the middle surrounded by pine forest and limestone mountains on the sea. Binh Tien beach is kept unspoiled from the footprint of industrial machinery resulting in the inherent natural beauty stays untouched.
A great experience for you when coming to Binh Tien is to breathe fresh air, stroll barefoot to watch the sea and sit on a cliff convenient to enjoy the morning air, watching the sunshine through the amazingly white background of vapor.
After bathing, your best bet is to enjoy fresh and cheap seafood such as snails, squid, and fresh crab … directly under the green lush coconut trees full of sea breeze.
Binh Lap Island
Belonging to Tu Binh – Cam Ranh, but Binh Lap is less known to tourists because the location is almost isolated from the outside. Binh Lap visit does not cost too much but you can feel the pristine environment there! What a bargain! Go before it becomes more popular lol.
Getting to Binh Lap is almost like entering a completely different world. Although it is a peninsula, it is secluded. You should first explore Binh Chau beach in Binh Lap because it is easy to find and there are many restaurants there. Bai Ngang is in front of Dao Hoa Vang Villa. Because of the clean and clear water, this beach has a lot of nets for shrimp farming. Bai Ngang is also sought after to explore. In addition, you can charter a boat to Con and other pristine beaches around Binh Lap.
Binh Lap has no specialty. This place offers only fresh seafood caught in the sea such as shrimp, squid, fish … There is a scintillating thing when exploring Binh Lap sea is the “pointing chicken” dish.
It means that the visitors will be led to living chicken broods, “point” the one(s) they would love to eat and there you go, a scrumptious eat will be made from their very choice and it’s from the garden, not freezer. A group of 5 to 6 people are already satisfied with only 1 bird.
