“Rocks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Clearly these rocks mean more to the locals than to most tourists. For whatever reason, throughout Southeast Asia, locals are fascinated by rocks' shapes, and most have been identified as resembling either humans or animals; you'll be informed by your guide. There are almost always myths or stories attached to explain the rocks, so maybe this is basic mythology. Anyway, these rocks are a rather daunting clamber out to the sea, and if the sun has been blazing down for most of the days, the rocks will be hot enough to make you regret touching them. I stayed on the somewhat cooler land under a few shade trees and just imagined making the trek with my fellow trekkers. That also works.

“Bunch of tacky rocks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

We stopped during a taxi tour of Nha Trang and were given 30 minutes to "explore". After walking down to the beach of rocks and passing loads of litter we felt it was not worth the stop and especially not worth the token admission cost.

“PURE ROCK-WOW FACTOR ENORMOUS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

If you want rock this place has it...enormous granite boulders protruding into the ocean. Many options for photos amongst the rocks.
Has to be the best located coffee cafe in Nha Trang...sensational views over the ocean and islands. Coffee not 60,000-70,000 per glass but 18,000 VND per glass!
Has a small beach area as well.
Very quiet and not swamped with tourists-so relaxing, so peaceful, so tranquil.

“Take your chances to get here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

The path to Hon Chong can only be revealed when the tide goes low. It’s about afternoon. Great location to see the town of Nha Trang and take some impressive photos here.

“Very good cafe with view to some big rocks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

Rocks are beautiful already to go to this place. They are huge and waves are breaking on some of them leaving you salty, wet and full of sea-emotions!
After rock seeing you can climb (by stairs) to the top of the nearest hill to get the pleasure of panorama view and some drinks/ice-creams
And by the way - you can get to this place free: get to the beach before rocks and go near the water line to the rocks. Then you can go to the cafe not from city (where you will pay fee for entrance) but from rocks.
Good luck!
