The island is one special unit. The journey was exciting from the very beginning as you step on the ship to get to the island. Water was blue all the way and you feel like being in a small Ha Long Bay. On the island, there're several unique places like Cau My beach with magnificant rock layers, Lighthouse (can see the whole island from here) and a mountain peak perfect for sunrise watching. No words can describe how amazing the place is, have a look at my photos. And FYI, free wifi all over the island!!!
