I'm not sure how many Fingernail Islands there are here but the one we went to wasn't what I envisioned a snorkelling destination to be. The boatman dropped us off by the back of the island where the water was completely littered with trash and...More

Not sure why there was so much hype about Fingernail Island (there are two...this is for the south one). The back of the island was filthy. The front of the island not nearly as picturesque as Hon May Rut Trong island.

Coral reef great for snorkeling. Full of beautiful fish. Amazing white sand and very warm sea. Booked a tour with John's Tours. A lot of tourists on boats but still nice.

Tremendous and peacelful little island. You could snorkle and swim in turquoise clear water. Must go place if you go on the island trip.

One of the most beautiful and exotic Vietnamese isles around Phu Quoc!!! A little day boat trip can take you easily there!!! However signs of tourism exploitation are appearing fast everyone!!!
