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.

The beach is wonderful,but you also find a lot of rubbish.You can go there by speedboat 2 million VND or take the 3 island trip tour by Johns tour for 32 $(you can book it for instance in Ong lang at the Family Inn)
