My husband and I did a local tour out to Cham Island by speed boat. It was interesting to see how the locals do their sightseeing. The island tour was interesting however they had advertised snorkelling as one of the highlight attractions but there was certainly nothing but sand to be seen. Even so a really pleasant day out

I was brought to the island by a very high-speed boat, great feeling when surfing on waves ship. A beautiful island and wild. I like most is being snorkeling undersea.

our family chartered a small motor boat for the 6 mile ride out to the Island. Go early in the morning & leave after lunch for two reasons: calmer water & larger louder charter groups arrive after lunch

Typical Asian South Pacific beach. You need to access it by boat. Speed boat is best option. Can be a bumpy ride. If you are looking for a quiet location to walk, swim this the place Tip : sunscreen, sunhat , camera , water snacks , selfie stick

We booked a snorkeling trip to Cham Island and were disappointed. The snorkeling gear consisted of a leaky mask--no breathing tube or fins. The beach we were taken to was lovely and packed with other tourists and the "tour" of the island itself was lackluster. The boat ride was exhilarating but the operator reckless, as were other boat operators.

The Cham islands are beautiful, but be careful not to go off season (late October-March) and avoid going at all costs with one of the main tour operators on a big boat. Both will leave you broke, shaken, and fairly cold. Visitors can expect a half day trip leaving early in the morning from around Cua Dai often after signing... More

We booked a tour to the Cham Islands and went over by slow boat which was lovely, met some lovely locals and enjoyed our leisurely voyage. Unfortunately, our trip back by speed boat was a disgrace, we were the last 2 aboard, since we weren't prepared to fight our way on board, which seems to be the local custom, and... More
