The smooth waves and the light current of the ocean surrounding the Cham Islands provide the ideal conditions for snorkelling. Many hotels in Hoi An the likes of Anantara Hoi An Resort encourage their guests to go on day trips to these enchanting islands if time permits.
When to Snorkel
The period between March and September is convenient for a hassle-free snorkelling trip. However, the best weather usually prevails in and around these islands from June to August. Outside these months, the usual stormy weathers continue for hours at a time making it less favourable for snorkelling or any other activity.
The Boat Trip with a View
You can head over to the Cham Island, a UNESCO protected area for its unique biodiversity and immaculate beaches, via ferry or by your own private cruise. You can look forward to being wrapped in a cool sea breeze with charming views tantalising your eyes.
You don’t have to be skilled divers to enjoy the marine wonderland that lies beneath the waters surrounding Cham Islands. Apart from snorkelling, some resorts even facilitate walking underwater by employing a kind of a railing that doesn’t harm the corals.
Relax at Bai Chong Beach
On your way back to the main beach strip, the boat will be anchored at Bai Chong Beach where you can relax in sun loungers and treat yourself to a delicious lunch.
