In effort to facilitate the access to Phu Quoc, Nam Du and Hon Son islands, we are partnering with the leading speedboat companies Superdong Speed Ferry and Phu Quoc Express connecting the ports of Rach Gia and Ha Tien with the islands in Southern Vietnam.
Phu Quoc is the largest island in Vietnam. Located in the Gulf of Thailand, the island belongs to Kien Giang province. Having experienced a tourist boom, Phu Quoc has achieved a fast ecomomic growth. In the last decades, many infrastructure projects have been developed, including 5-star hotels and resorts.
The beaches are the main attraction in the island. Phu Quoc offers some of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam, including Long Beach along the western coast, Bai Sao and Bai Kem in the south, Bai Ganh Dau and Bai Dai in the north, and the An Thoi Archipelago beaches. Besides swimming, snorkeling and sun-bathing, eating seafood and watching the sunset are also the most popular activities.
How to get to Phu Quoc by ferry
Phu Quoc is accessible by ferry from the ports of Rach Gia and Ha Tien with Superdong Speed Ferry and Phu Quoc Express. Passengers can combine bus + ferry routes if coming from Can Tho in the Mekong Delta or Sihanoukville in Southern Cambodia via Kep – Ha Tien international border crossing.
Nam Du comprises 21 islets and aims to emerge as the new destination for those who seek clean tropical beaches away from tourists, in exchange of the possibility to stay in a luxury beach resort as the accommodation facilities are quite limited.
The small archipelago was once described as ‘the most beautiful islands in Vietnam you can’t visit‘, as Nam Du was restricted to foreigners, who had to produce a permit issued by the provincial authorities to enter the territory. Fortunately, the restriction was lifted in 2017 and foreigners can now access Nam Du without an official permit.
Situated 80 km from the coast of Kien Giang province, the main island Cu Tron is the only one that can be reached by ferry from the mainland. Once on the island, the main attraction is to visit the Nam Du lighthouse, which stands on a hill 300 meters above the sea offering a panoramic view of the nearby islets Nom, Mau, Ngang and Hai Bo Dap.
Tourists can also join a day tour, which typically includes a boat trip around the islands, fishing, diving to see corals and swim in the pristine beaches like Bai Men.
How to get to Nam Du by ferry
Nam Du is accessible by ferry from the port of Rach Gia with Superdong Speed Ferry and Phu Quoc Express. The sea journey takes only 2 hours and 30 minutes. Each day there are limited ferry services, departing to the island in the morning and returning to the mainland in the afternoon.
Located about 65 km from the coast of Kien Giang, Hon Son island is a hidden gem for nature-loving tourists. The economy of the island depends on fishing and fish sauce making and it still offers a serene and unspoiled atmosphere, resisting to transform into a tourism hot spot.
Hon Son offers plenty of options for travellers: trekking, swimming, diving, exploring corals and fishing. If you are looking for a place to relax, its many sand beaches with calm turquoise waters are perfect to take a dip and cool off.
