Owner description: Cham islands are 15km from Cua Dai. There are seven islands altogether named according to their shape or characteristics. They are called Lao ( pear ), Dai ( long ), La ( leaf), Kho ( dry ),Tai ( ear ),Mo ( tomb ) and Nom ( East Wind ). They have good climate, cool the year round, trees and animals as well as marine life are plentiful here. On the island, there are precious bird nests while under the water, the coral is marvelous. There are also scenic spots around the island, such as Suoi Tinh ( Love stream), Suoi Ong ( Sir’s stream ), Hon Chong ( Piled up rocks ),Hang Ba ( The lady’s cave ). the island is also surrounded by very nice beaches with clean white sand and transparent, cool water.

“It was beautiful but a little boring..”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

We expected it to have a little more to see. There is not much in the island apart from the huts that prepare the lunch.

After an hour of sitting on the beach we were ready to go and we were stuck there for another 3 hours. There was jellyfish in the water at the time we were there -April.

If you want to sun bake it's perfect.

“Lovely beach, beautiful clear water.”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

We visited Cham Isaland today and it was really lovely. My little girl had a ball at the beach, gorgeous, clean, safe for swimming. The snorkelling was good, although my one gripe is that the supplied masks and snorkels were awful, leaky, broken. The lunch provided was nice, although not stunning. Toilet is squat-style, which you flush with a bucket, which may put some off! It is not easy to get a 3 year old to use one! All in all would recommend. We paid $25usd pp for the day.

“Cooooold water”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

Had a lovely morning on the island. Very nice and un spoiled but freezing cold water. Kids only lasted few minutes then had to get out when we stopped for snorkeling off of the island. A bit warmer water when we swam after docking on the island. Had a nice local lunch on the island that was part of the tour to Cham

“Not great snorkelling”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Took the trip out to Cham Island. Tour guide was great. Unfortunately, our snorkels were dirty and they gave us no fins but we exchanged them for clean ones and you didn't need the fins anyway because the snorkeling wasn't that great. On top of it, our group all got itchy in the water. Our guide told us it was sea lice. In 10 minutes it subsided and left no marks. Google sea lice to find out more about it.
The island was nice and the beach was nice too but I was disapponited in the snorkeling.
