Islands Around Nha Trang
Nha Trang is ideally situated between the ocean and the mountains. Directly off the coast are five main islands, the largest being Hon Tre, providing protection from storms and giving Nha Trang the best beach climate in Vietnam. These islands also make Nha Trang a great place to explore by boat.
Below are the five main islands, all easily accessible by boat:
Hon Yen, also known as Salangane Island, is the source of Vietnam’s finest salangane nests.
Hon Mieu, known as an ‘outdoor aquarium’, has a fish breeding farm supporting over 40 species of fish.
