A group of 8 spectacular islands, Cham Islands located off the coast of Hoi An in Central Vietnam, has been garnering much interest since it was declared as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2009. The inhabitants of the charming islands are recognized as a distinct community with the entire area being governed by the local Tan Hiep commune.
Hon Lao is the largest and only island in the cluster that is home to several villages while the lesser islands of Hon Dai, Hon Kho Me, Hon Mo, Hon Kho Con, Hon Tai, Hon Ong and Hon La are known for their scenic beauty and diversity of marine life including the presence of a few endangered species that are not found elsewhere in the world.
The fishing villages of Cham Islands offer an insight into the life of the local populace while the seven magnificent beaches on Hon Lao possess a number of charms including natural caves and tranquil sites that are excellent for relaxation.
Visitors can enjoy a day’s outing at the wonderful and unspoiled natural islands by booking specific packages from the tour operators located in and around Hoi An & Da Nang cities. However, tourists eager to try a number of water sports prefer to stay overnight.
