1. Best time to travel to Binh Hung
The most beautiful time to travel to Binh Hung is in the summer because, in this time, the sea is very quiet. You can stand and admire the clear blue sea water of the beach here.
But that does not mean that you can only go to Binh Hung in summer, but on the contrary, this place is beautiful all year round, so all you need to do before a trip to Binh Hung is just checking the weather to avoid the rainy days, and there you can completely enjoy the sandy blue sea in Binh Hung.
2. Best ways to travel to Binh Hung
If you depart from Hanoi, you should take a flight from Hanoi to Cam Ranh, then take a boat to Binh Hung island. If you are from Saigon – Cam Ranh, you can take Phuong Trang bus to Cam Ranh.
It is best to rent a motorbike even if you depart from Nha Trang, Cam Ranh or Phan Rang because the road to the island is DT 702, one of the most beautiful roads in Vietnam. Therefore, if riding a bike to the destination, you’ll be able to enjoy the adventure with one side of the sea, one side of the mountain before reaching Binh Hung island.
Running along the beautiful overwhelmed beaches like Binh Tien beach, Nuoc Ngot beach, Chuoi beach to Kinh beach is also the pier to Binh Hung. From here, you can take a boat to the island which takes only about 10 minutes, and costs VND10,000 per person. If you want to ride motorcycles on the island, then add VND10,000 more, extremely cheap, right!
3. Cheap places to stay overnight
If you’re an experienced traveler, the tent is most appropriate. However, if the group has female members or family members, this option is not the most convenient. I recommend you stay in motels or houses of locals. There are a number of fishermen’s motels for rent at around VND70,000 per person per night.
In addition, you can easily find rooms with fan, air conditioning, good facilities,… If you want to try staying in a homestay, you will be amazed by the thoughtfulness and devotion of the people of this coastal area.
