Beauty of Mai Nha island

To get to the island, tourists can ride motorbikes along a seaside road from Tuy Hoa City to An Ninh Dong Fishing Port where they rent a boat for a one-hour trip to Tien Chau Seaport and then Xuan Dai Bay before heading for the south to Mai Nha Island. Spectacular views along the way are Ganh Den Light House and Da Dia Rock Reef - a national landscape of Phu Yen.

Another option for visitors is to traverse to Phuoc Dong Village in An Hai Commune in Tuy An District and then rent a fishing boat for a 30-minute journey to Mai Nha Island. It is a memorable experience to get on a bamboo basket for a short trip to a boat that transports tourists to the island.

Leisure activities

On the island, visitors can go swimming, lie leisurely on yellow sand and trek to the peak of a hill to view a prairie with lots of cactuses, wild trees, and waves slapping against huge rocks in unique shapes from a far distance.
