Not worth the visit

The island was too boring I dont know what to do when I got there. The beach might seem nice if there arent too many ship docking around. It also made the island too crowded to enjoy.

Popped in to this gem on a speedboat tour and was very pleasantly surprised...

Yes, it's crowded, but this little island rocks.

You'll probably be on a tour to end up here but hopefully your tour is on one of the smaller boats and you can get your own private table and avoid the crowds a bit. Excellent food, a picturesque beach, and stunning views made this a definite highlight of the trip.

Gorgeous from a distance

Regrettably, this gorgeous cove continues to be spoiled by locals building shacks and dumping rubbish.
I am certain a several years back it had been spectacular, today it is muddled with tour boats and a lot of men and women crowding upon a little but beautiful white sandy beach.
We stayed only briefly and then returned to the boat, as it had been far more tranquil and gorgeous from there.
The water had a dazzling slick on it as a result of each of the boats with filthy leaking engines, such unfortunate, locals do not care about the surroundings of theirs.

Beautiful but a bit crowded island
Sep 2019
I love this place in Phu Quoc, it's a beautiful island with clear water, fresh &delicious seafood. Snorkeling in this island is the best, I could see many corals and marine life. However, I felt a bit sad because it's nearly become a stop for tourists. But anyway, it's still a memorable destination in my life!

Such a crowded island with local eateries
May 2019 • Friends
We felt a little bit disappointed about this island which was mainly a stop for eating for tourists. The seafood is very expensive and all dishes were normally cooked. This place was very crowded and canoes could not arrive close to the beach. Guests had to go into the island through shabby wooden platforms.

Small but beautiful island

There is many ways to reach finger nail island, you can go by normal boat (75 minutes) or speed boat (25 minutes). The water here very green and clear, when swimming you can see lots of fishes. They have also some small restaurants you can have some fresh coconuts, some other drinks and snacks. If you like you can have very pictures here with super beautiful view.
From finger nail island, you can look around the other islands as well.

Fingernail Nail Island (Hon Mong Tay)
Feb 2019 • Couples
No doubt the water is clear emerald green and the rock formation (around 300m in length) is a pretty sight BUT.... there is just a very small stretch of beach. With the many food stalls setting up dining tables, the area is littered with food and empty beer cans and bottles. During peak season, it is really difficult to set your picnic mat to lay down, without getting trampled on! The mini-jetty and the many small boats anchoring on the beach, makes the swimming area even more narrow.

The other islands have similarly clear waters, and it is cheaper to go to. Fingernail Island is just a hype, just because someone wrote about it many years ago, when it was still peaceful and quiet.

Do note that snorkeling in Phu Quoc is not fantastic, unlike in East Coast Peninsular Malaysia and perhaps the small islands near Bali and Philippines.... rich in marine life.

We paid USD22/person for a day trip of a 30min sea fishing experience, snorkeling on Fingernail Island, Dam Ngang Island, Sao Beach with bus&boat transfers and lunch included.
