We stopped in for lunch which was included in our Dive and Snorkelling trip. The food was beautiful and the amenities are good. Lots of chairs on the beach to sit back relax and enjoy the view

Took a trip to this island, had lunch at an outdoorsy restaurant as part of the tour. Very inexpensive. Not a lot to do but was a nice break. Some people on our trip snorkelled and some swam. A small gift market.

Let me say up front our tour guide was very good. It was the tour that wasn't great. They advertise you can pay extra and go fishing as part of the tour. This is not true. There is no fishing option. The ONLY reason my...More

We go to Cham Island by speedboat. It's so amazing with the beautiful beach, white sand, blue ocean and snorkelling. We only stay here until 3 p.m. I want to have more time to lying on the beach. Hope to come back here soon

This place is so nice when you stay away from the main beach in town. My advice, stay at homestay, hang out with local people, go to hidden beach. The island is lovely in the afternoon when tourists are back to Hoi An and Danang

A quiet little island, with about 2000 inhabitants, didn't disappoint. The little museum about marine life around was informative, small shops with souvenirs and the lunch provided by the tour operator were nice. The snorkelling experience was average as we could hardly see any fish....More

Finally made it out to Cham Island. It was beautiful, with a quiet, peaceful beach and some good snokelling. We probably didn't need to stay overnight - a day trip would have sufficed - but it was a very relaxing break nonetheless.

We've arrived there after a boat trip including snorkling. Beautiful scenery but not much to do besides eating and drinking at the beach. I wouldn't go there by myself, but as a part of a tour is a great location. The food was very good...More
