A whole world of coral lies in wait to impress through glass-bottomed boats or diving goggles in Vinh Hy Bay.

Vinh Hy is a small bay 45 kilometers from the city of Phan Rang (Ninh Thuan). The dock in Vinh Hy is home to many fishing and tourist boats. The tours offered here include cruises out into the bay, coral reef tours and trips to Hang Rai.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, they say, but here in Vinh Hy, beauty still serves when the beholder is hungry. Seafood caught directly from the waters you pass in the morning now sizzles perfectly on charcoal. You can find fat scallion-grilled urchins, her breast snails, butter-grilled oysters and lobster at any stall here.

Many are surprised that there are still many untouched beaches around Vinh Hy.
