Hon Mong Tay Beach

The beach here is small but quite nice. It is a great place to sun bathe and relax. Many locals come here to have a picnic during the day and as such it can get a bit crowded around noon. The best time to visit the beach and island is during the early morning, just before the tour boats come in.
