We went to Cham Island and stayed at Tam & Thu homestay in the small fishing village of Bai Huong. It was a marvellous experience. We went fishing and watching collecting of birds eggs with the family and also snorkelling in the clear water. We had wonderful meals in their home and enjoyed the peace and friendlyness of the village.

I can't remember a more disappointing excursion. We were led to believe we were visiting an eco beach, no plastic allowed, pristine and beautiful. It was rammed with tourists - hundreds of them, dirty beach, dirty water, plastic water slides in the sea, horrible included lunch - and the snorkelling was just a bit of bleached coral, not a fish...

Speed boats chugging out fumes, polluted waters, dirty island, wished we hadn't bothered to go there.

We booked a snorkelling tour to Cham Island through Cham Island Diving. It was purely focussed on the divers and didn't care to much about the snorkelers. The crew were a bunch of guys too interested in themselves, drinking and smoking throughout the tour. We arrived at Bai Chong Beach and were served up a Vietnamese lunch which was cold... More

We went on a day trip to Cham Island. The beach wasn't as clean as some others we had been to. In front of the restaurant was fine but when I went for a walk along the beach, the rubbish started to increase. Snorkeling was fun even though it was a windy day.

Unfortunately the motely crew were a bunch of cowboys who only focus on the scuba divers and not the snorkelers which included no instruction or interaction. Arriving at Bai Chong Beach we were then treated to a... More
