Binh Ba island overview

Binh Ba is a small island, covering an area of 3 square km, located in Cam Binh Commune, Cam Ranh City, Khanh Hoa Province. Located 60 km from Nha Trang and 390km from Ho Chi Minh City. In order to reach Binh Ba island, we have to go to Ba Ngoi port. Ba Ngoi port is 15km from Cam Ranh airport.

In the past, Binh Ba was a military island, restricting people from entering the island. Until recently, the rules have been loosened, however foreigners are still banned. This is also the reason why now Binh Ba Island is famous! Also, if you do not want to be kicked out of the island soon, you should not be curious about banned areas which have been warned by the local military.

Recently, with the number of visitors to Binh Ba more and more, infrastructure has not developed to keep up with the number of visitors, making the island environment absolutely fresh and enjoyable.
