Owner description: Cham islands are 15km from Cua Dai. There are seven islands altogether named according to their shape or characteristics. They are called Lao ( pear ), Dai ( long ), La ( leaf), Kho ( dry ),Tai ( ear ),Mo ( tomb ) and Nom ( East Wind ). They have good climate, cool the year round, trees and animals as well as marine life are plentiful here. On the island, there are precious bird nests while under the water, the coral is marvelous. There are also scenic spots around the island, such as Suoi Tinh ( Love stream), Suoi Ong ( Sir’s stream ), Hon Chong ( Piled up rocks ),Hang Ba ( The lady’s cave ). the island is also surrounded by very nice beaches with clean white sand and transparent, cool water.

“Disappointing Trip”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

No part of this half day trip was great - from the nearly 2 hour wait at the quay to get documentation cleared to the guide who could barely speak english. Am sure during high season it must be nicer but even knowing tat it was a UNESCo heritage site did not make me feel any warmer towards this island. the only thing that salvaged the trip was the great food served on the beach by a beachside restaurant. And just when the sun came out we were back on the boat and back at Hoi An nearly an hour before we should have been because 3 tother people on the boat had to be back early. Not impressed.

“Nice boat trip for a day”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

You have to pick your weather as it can get a bit rough out there. The island is quiet and small so don't go looking for much excitement just nice Vietnamese charm. The snorkelling will disappoint if you have done GBR, Red Sea or Florida Keys.

“Such a nice little day out, great value for money”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

we went to cham island for snorkling but it was so much more than that. You get a tour of the island and a beautiful meal included. The beach was amazing, it could have been cleaner but the sand and water was beautiful. The food was the tastiest meal I had in Hoi an and everyone was really friendly. Also the boat journey is really fun. I would defo recommend going here for the day it was great value for money!

“FRESH”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

I came here last July and will never forget this heaven. It is a beach i always want to turn back. The seafood is much cheaper than everywhere I've been before. Have to come here whenever you arrive Vietnam.

“Very Good”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Great place for sight seeing and snorkeling, diving.
The snorkeling package was great fun, clean water, tropical fish, starfish.
You can watch the boat from land that bring food to island at sunrise.
Visit a fishing village as well.
