Mong Tay Island – place should come when traveling to Vietnam

Located far from Phu Quoc Island, the island is attracted to young people by beauty and pristine tranquility. Many people who come to this place are said to be attracted by the special name “not like anyone” – Mong Tay Island. This is because there is a lot of Mong Tay trees, or “Son Hai Tung tree”. However, the number of trees on the island is very low now.

Mong Tay island located in Duong Hoa Commune, Kien Luong District, off the coast of Kien Giang Province, in south of Phu Quoc Island. It is located between the archipelago of Ba Lua and the Hai Tac Islands, but the island of Mong Tay is not belong to any archipelago. The island is hidden away with shipping lines, so few ships pass through, even without human intervention, they are compared to “Robinson’s Island” of Kien Giang.

Also, when you come here, you also hear about “the legend” of a person like Robinson. That is the story of “god of island” named An, who has been on this deserted island for 13 years. He was blind, but he was very good at swimming and was capable of fasting for many days.

What is special about Mong Tay islands?

Due to the lack of human intervention, almost all the original beauty of the Mong Tay Island has remained intact until now.

You can take a speed boat from An Thoi port to Mong Tay island for about 30 minutes. This is a beautiful picture that nature gives people with green coconut trees up vertical along the coast, white sand stretching in the sun. The water here is so green that you can see the vibranting coral reef below, its shapes and colors.

When coming to Mong Tay Island, do not forget to enjoy the “special” here, which is beautiful coral with shimmering color eye catching, surrounded by swimming small sea fish.

The coral reefs are relatively shallow, so enjoy the scuba experience watching them without worrying about the high diving requirements. It is known that the coral ecosystem here is ranked the most in Vietnam in terms of abundance, along with various types of sea anemones.

Along with the coral reef experience, visitors can experience sea fishing. Since this place is pristine, there are no accompanying services so you need to bring fishing rods from the mainland. It is interesting that a bad handler can become a “good hand” here when just drop bait into the sea to catch the fish. And it’s even more fun to enjoy the after-party on a beautiful beach like paradise.
