Hon Chong Beach
Hon Chong Beach, Nha Trang: The narrow granite promontory of Hon Chong offers fine views of the mountainous coastline north of Nha Trang and the nearby islands. The beach here has a more local flavor than Nha Trang Beach (but the accompanying refuse is unpleasant). Still, it's fun to watch the local kids do Acapulco-style swan dives into the ocean. There are a reconstructed traditional run residence and a great cafe. A taxi here from the city center is around 30,000d.About 300m south of Hon Chong (towards Nha Trang) and a few dozen meters from the beach is tiny Hon Do (Red Island), which has a Buddhist temple on top. To the northeast is Hon Rua (Tortoise Island), which really does resemble a tortoise. The two islands of Hon Yen (Bird’s-Nest Island) are off in the distance to the east. A well-known spot of scenic beauty, the Rock Hon Chong is not only attractive to visitors to Nha Trang but also no less allure to the local inhabitants, children as well as grownups who have made frequent visits to this place. In the vernacular, it means the "Husband Rock", the name given to one of the two rocks, the couple, the other one is the wife.
