Hòn Móng Tay

Nail Island In The North

Discover Hòn Móng Tay

Serene Hon Mong Tay is a small privately owned island located just off the coast of Vung Bau Beach up in Cua Can commune.  The island is popular with snorkelers as many of the organized boat tours stop off here during the day.  At night, the island transforms itself into an upscale bar on par with those found on Seminyak, Bali.

Hòn Móng Tay has two zones, the southern zone is where you will find the islands bar and the northern zone is where you will find a small beach with coarse yellow sand. The sea here is very calm during the dry season and there are no underwater currents that we know of making this place an ideal destination for the entire family.
