Nice view for some photos but nothing really special. Put on good shoes when you walk out because it's rocks all the way and check when the tide is low

If you want to visit the island you must go at low tide. Check with your hotel to find low tide. You can find great views from the peninsula overlooking the island.

You can only walk there at low tide. We enjoyed the walk over the rocks and seeing the different sea shells and tide pools along the way. Once you get over to the island there isn't much to see if the temple isn't your religion.

A tiny islet cut off from the mainland most of the time thast allows for romantic conjecture. Visit the pagoda on the islet, but time yoursekf or you'll find the tide coming in very quick.

You will have to look up the Tide table for the Vungtau area and see when it is low tide. There us no fixed "best" time to go to the island because the tidetimes are constantly shifting.
