KHANH HOA – In September, there are still many tourists coming to Diep Son island to enjoy the wild beauty and unique sea route.
Diep Son is an island village with 6 floating islands and 2 sinking islands in Van Thanh commune, Van Ninh district. This cluster of islands has become a popular tourist destination in recent years. Viewed from above, the islands are located close to each other, separated by a waterway (the path formed by sand forming a path in the middle of the sea) hundreds of meters long. Visitors can walk on the sea to admire the islands.
In the Diep Son island cluster, Buddha island (Doc island) and Hon Giua (Crow island) are well known. Visitors are impressed by the 400 m long road connecting the two islands. Mr. Trinh Minh Dai Anh, an eco-tourist at reclining Buddha island, said that the road connecting the two islands can be traveled all year round, at the highest tide the water is only waist-deep. “The best time to take pictures on this road is the ankle-deep ginseng water, with fish wading around,” Dai Anh said.
Mr. Huu Long (Nha Trang City) paddles, swim near the area of the reclining Buddha island. Having been to the island many times, he said that when the sun is high, the sea surface will be clearer and the seabed can be seen as very beautiful.

For the first time with 6 friends traveling to the Diep Son island cluster, Mr. Nguyen Cong Tu (HCMC) said that the experience at this place is completely different from the clear islands in Nha Trang Bay. “Here, the sea is very clean, the air is fresh, and there are not many people, so I feel like I’m not interested,” said Tu, adding that because he had no experience with the tide calendar, when he came to the island, he still experienced the experience.

Mr. Trinh Minh Dai Anh, who works as an eco-tourist on Reclining Buddha Island, guides young tourists in kayak. “Even though the water is shallow, we are still not subjective, always reminding visitors to ensure safety when having fun,” he said.

Here, you can choose to take a canoe or a fisherman’s wooden boat to visit the islands in Diep Son village (Van Thanh commune, Van Ninh district) in a time of 10-15 minutes.
