A forgotten island in Phu Yen
Update: Aug 23, 2016
The central coast province of Phu Yen is home to multiple scenic venues and Mai Nha Island is one of them. Called a forgotten or deserted island by local people, the island is a choice for tourists who are finding a place to enjoy serenity.

To get to the island, tourists can ride motorbikes along a seaside road from Tuy Hoa City to An Ninh Dong Fishing Port where they rent a boat for a one-hour trip to Tien Chau Seaport and then Xuan Dai Bay before heading for the south to Mai Nha Island. Spectacular views along the way are Ganh Den Light House and Da Dia Rock Reef - a national landscape of Phu Yen.

Another option for visitors is to traverse to Phuoc Dong Village in An Hai Commune in Tuy An District and then rent a fi shing boat for a 30-minute journey to Mai Nha Island. It is a memorable experience to get on a bamboo basket for a short trip to a boat that transports tourists to the island.

On the island, visitors can go swimming, lie leisurely on yellow sand and trek to the peak of a hill to view a prairie with lots of cactuses, wild trees, and waves slapping against huge rocks in unique shapes from a far distance.

A young couple and their twin children live on the island. In addition to fishing, they also sell beverages and fresh fish to visitors to earn a living.
