Hon Mun Island is situated on the south of Nha Trang Bay, Nha Trang City, Khanh Hoa Province, 10km from the city’s center.
Named Hon Mun (Ebony) because in the south east of the island, it has high-rise cliffs with dangerous wattles forming caves and grottoes, especially its stones are as black as ebony, which could rarely be found in other areas.
In the black-rock caves of Hon Mun, every year flocks of swallows migrate to the area and build their nests. Hon Mun sea was planed as the first marine protected area of Vietnam. Due to the island’s location adjacent to the hot sea-currents from the equator, suitable to the development conditions of corals and various types of tropical sea creatures, the sea bed of Hon Mun is home to an abundant and diverse group of marine species.
Here, visitors can dive snorkeling, ride glass-bottom boat or walk under the sea to admire the magnificent water world of Nha Trang sea. Mun Island is the scene for well-known sites such as “Madonna Rock” and “Coral Garden” where divers can view the kaleidoscope of bright fish and coral. It takes 15 minutes to get there by boat and is so popular it can have up to 10 boats moored off its shores at any one time.
In 2001, Mun Islet sea was planed as the first marine protected area of Vietnam.
