Binh Ba Island – an unmissable place for camping
Located far from Cam Ranh Bay, Nha Trang city about 15 km, Binh Ba is an unspoiled island owning many beautiful beaches. It is absolutely suitable for camping activities. It has just been known in some recent year, therefore, the number of visitors to Binh Ba island is not so crowded as other tourism places.
If you are looking for a place to camp, Binh Ba island is one of the first choice you and your friend should set on foot for Nha Trang trip. See our recommendation below you will find out why:
Firstly, Binh Ba island owns the pristine beauty, this is a peaceful place for visitors to take a rest and release from all stress after those hard-working days. Nature of the island brought us a sense of calmness which helps us keep away from bustling atmosphere of the bustling city of Cam Ranh.
Secondly, the most impressive thing to me in Binh Ba island is its many beautiful beaches. There are four famous beaches in this island including Bai Chuong, Bai Nom, Bai Nha Cu, Bai Me Hon Rua. Because Bai Nha Cu is a prohibited port, you can choose Bai Chuong, Bai Nom and Bai Me Hon Rua for camping. From our point of view, Bai Nom is the most peaceful beach which is an ideal place for teambuilding on beach.
Although you can visit Binh Ba island at any time you want, the most appropriate time is on the normal day from March to September due to the high peak of tourists on public holiday which can hinder you from exploring totally its beauty. To travel to Binh Ba island is only by boat from Cam Ranh bay. And you need to register and rent a boat in advance for your trip to Binh Ba island.
Another reason, Binh Ba island is not only a place to enjoy natural scenery but also a paradise of fresh seafood with the cheapest price compared to other tourism places in Vietnam, the island is also known as “Lobster Island“. You can enjoy various delicious and tasty dishes from lobsters which was very sweet and fresh. The particularity of such food lies behind the freshness, because the lobster will be processed directly right after being caught. If you would like to enjoy such sumptuous seafood meal, hurry up because lobster will not be cheap when there are many visitors coming to Binh Ba.
And you will be so impressed with the friendliness and hospitality of its local citizens in Binh Ba island. If you need support, they are very honest and generous to assist and serve you.
