In need of some snorkelling, diving or laid back beach time? The Cham Islands is the ideal place to go…Situated off the coast of Central Vietnam, Cham Island Biosphere Reserve boasts white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and abundant coral and marine life. You depart Hoi An in the moderately early morning and its then a 45 minutes speedboat ride over to the island. You arrive at Bai Lan Village, a small fishing community worth exploring to see how the locals live. From here on it is all sun-bathing and swimming. A seafood lunch is at Bai Trong Beach, which is then followed by more time for basically beach-bum relaxation and some snorkelling from this idyllic beach.
You will get back to Hoi An circa 2pm.
If you want to go diving, then this is possible as an optional extra and a PADI certificate will need to be shown in advance.
