The government has officially banned tourism activities on Binh Ba Island in the central province of Khanh Hoa, citing security reasons.
According to a new decision that will take effect on November 6, Binh Ba, along with Hoi Cape and Chut Islet, are located within the Cam Ranh Military Base.
People and vehicles traveling from and to this area must be strictly controlled to ensure security and safety, it said.
Therefore, the government will ban all tourism activities on the three spots.
Binh Ba is the largest island in the deep-water Cam Ranh Bay. It has recently emerged as an attractive destination thanks to its pristine beauty.
Local residents mostly make their living by lobster farming and tourism-related business.
