There are many beautiful, untouched islands in the south-central province of Khanh Hoa, home to the famous Nha Trang Bay.
One of which is Diep Son Island, located in Van Phong Bay. Diep Son consists of three small, isolated islets.
What is special about Diep Son is an 800-meter winding path that is half submerged in the crystal clear jade water, connecting two islets.
The footpath is around 1.2 meters wide and nearly half a meter below the water surface.
Groups of tiny fishes swim around. Sometimes they jump off the water, making the sea surface sparkling.
Sometimes, the path is completely dry when the water subsides. Locals can walk to a larger islet, aptly named Large Diep Son.
It is so beautiful with green coconut trees and crystal jade water beaches. There are only around 80 households in the islet. They are mostly fishers.
The other two islets are also stunning with white sandy beaches.
To get here, tourists can take a boat on Van Gia Wharf in Van Gia Town. The trip takes around one hour.
