Whale Island resort



A ‘get-away-from it all' hideaway, the only buildings on a sand island 80km north of Nha Trang. It's small but exclusive and comfortable – a bit more expensive than a hotel, but as all meals, transfers, the use of sailboards, small catamarans, and equipment and a motor boat for snorkelling are included, it's good value. 

On the island, you get a pleasant en-suite extension to your bungalow with a modern flush toilet and a shower fitting. There are no traffic noises, no canned music and no unwanted distractions! Electricity is generated on the island, and available only when it's dark. 

This is a place for relaxing au naturelle! 

You'll share your shady wooden bungalow with a few geckoes and insects, but mosquitoes are effectively kept at bay by attractive nets. The furniture is simple, but well-designed and comfortable.

There is a pleasant bamboo restaurant serving a limited mixture of Vietnamese and international cuisine with a decent wine list. Catering standards are high, but expect plenty of seafood as all other provisions have to be transported from Nha Trang.

A bar on a rocky promontory serves drinks at sensible prices, and an adjacent lounge and terrace overlooking the sea has billiard tables and other indoor pastimes.

You can dive at Whale Island – the coral is considered better than in Nha Trang. Rainbow Divers (Five-star PADI) has a booth at the resort, so you can book and pay locally when you arrive.

Whale Island isn't to everyone's taste, but if you're looking for peace and quiet on an isolated tropical island with comfortable accommodation, good food and enough things to do to avoid boredom, it's hard to beat. Travellers will certainly enjoy your time there!.
