  • The tide was too high so we did not cross the path. But even if the tide was lower, the path is very rocky. You can watch our video about this place and Vung Tau on our Youtube Channel...  more »
  • Hon Ba is a small island not far from the sothern tip of Vung Tau beach, it is possible cross to the island by feet.  more »
  • Cute little island... it's very near the shore (in fact it's reachable on foot during low tide!)
  • The island is more interesting if you observe it from the road that surrounds the Vung Tau peninsula than in fact if you visit it. The way to the island it is only possible at low tide through a very slippery rocks path and once on the island you can go up to the pagoda in the middle of it, where two guys, a sort of guardians, did not allow me to stay or even take a picture and so, you have to return back to the beach over the dangerous rocks path. In fact, just take a picture from the top of the hill and save yourself the fun of visiting it.
