The Cham Islands (Vietnamese: Cù lao Chàm) constitute a group of 8 small islands of Quảng Nam, which form a part of the Cu Lao Cham Marine Park, a world Biosphere Reserve recognized by UNESCO, in the South East Asia Sea in Vietnam. The islands are approachable from Cửa Đại beach.

The Cham Islands may only be a short trip from Hoi An. It’s worth it because there are options catering to everyone, like diving or snorkelling or just enjoying the boat trip out to explore the islands.
How do you get to Cham Island?
+ Hoi An to Cham Island by Speedboat Traveling by speedboat is the fastest way to reach the islands, taking only around 20 minutes. The average price is around 300,000 VND (13 USD) for a one-way trip. While you can book directly with captains at Cua Dai Pier, Hidden suggests going through your hotel or a travel agent.
Can you stay on Cham Island?
Watching the sun set from secluded beaches and rise over local fishermen’s boats out at sea is something you can only experience on the Cham Islands when you find accommodation there and stay overnight. Instead, there are humble homestays and guesthouses in the villages and tents on the white sandy beaches.
Is Hoi An safe at night?
Hoi An is a small community so scams are nowhere near as rife as you may find in the larger cities. But you still need to be cautious, especially late at night and even more so if you have been drinking.
How many days do you need in Hoi An?
I recommend a minimum of three full days to explore all that Hoi An has to offer. This gives you enough time to see Hoi An and its beaches, spend an afternoon in Da Nang, and maybe take a day trip to My Son (see below).
