Coral Island, a pearl of Ninh Thuan

Nui Chua National Park in the central province of Ninh Thuan offers some stunning landscapes, including San Ho (Coral) Island.

Coral Island is usually mistaken with Hang Rai (Otter Cave), a beach 20 kilometers from the provincial capital Phan Rang-Thap Cham and on the way to Vinh Hy Bay. They are two different places.

But they both lie along Nui Chua (Chua Mountain). As its name suggests, the Coral Island is full of beautiful coral reefs and mossy rock beds.
