2. Binh Ba – one of the best Nha Trang islands
Binh Ba is a small island, an area of over 3 km2, in Cam Binh commune, Cam Ranh city, Khanh Hoa province. This island is located 60 km from Nha Trang, 390 km from Ho Chi Minh City. If we want to go to Binh Ba, we must force to Ba Ngoi port. Ba Ngoi port is 15 km from Cam Ranh airport, Binh Ba is 15 km from Ba Ngoi port.
Previously, Binh Ba was a military island, restricting people from entering the island. Now, the law has been loosened, but it still prohibits foreigners. This is also the reason why now Binh Ba island is famous! In addition, if you do not want to be kicked out of the island early, you should not be curious about the areas banned by the military or have acts of disruptive and aggressive. And, that’s the reasons why Binh Ba is one of the most pristine Nha Trang islands.
The first thing you should go when coming to Binh Ba is renting boats to go to beaches and snorkel to see corals. Usually, the price of the package goes all the yards to 1- 1,2 million VND / trip depending on the place, so if you go east, it will be more economical. Saying “diving to watch coral” but in fact you do not necessarily have to dive, just wear a life jacket and lie on a buoy, face down to the sea is viewable, so anyone who does not know how to swim is not afraid. So, try this interesting activity on the beautiful Nha Trang island right away if you don’t want to regret. You should bring swimming goggles to swim and dive easily, because scuba diving goggles which are not familiar will be difficult to carry and uncomfortable.
You may not even need to go to the water and still watch the coral. Occasionally, at the Old House at low tide, each colorful coral reef will be exposed to the sun, spoiled for you to walk while looking, touching, enjoying.
After the swimming and seeing the coral, the equally interesting part is to rent a motorbike to explore the island. Bike rental price is 100k / day, there are many bike rental places on the island and all motels have this service. You should ride a motorbike from early morning to Chan beach to see the sunrise, then run to explore all the mountain pass roads. There are many places that will give you beautiful views, especially the 3 highest points in 3 directions North, South and East. You will have the opportunity to observe the whole Cam Ranh Bay, see Turtle island, coastal patrol boats, small fishing boats or the entire residential area of this Nha Trang island.
The old relics such as blockhouse, magic cannon pedestal, tunnel along the mountain, etc. are also very worth seeing on Binh Ba island. In Nom beach, there is a small park with many trees, and a hammock nearby. A cool lunch break, swinging with the waves and the sea breeze is really great. Price of hammock is only 5k / piece (maybe 50k / piece), it is worth to try!
