A highlight of this cluster is Hon Yen (Yen Islet), which is located in Nhon Hoi hamlet, An Hoa commune, Tuy An district, 15km from Tuy Hoa city.

It is called Yen Islet because in the old days it had a lot of bird nests.

Hon Yen landscape cluster links with other relic sites along coastal roads such as Da Dia Reef, Mai Nha and Hon Chua islets, Mon – Mui Dien beach, and Vung Ro bay, creating an attractive tour in Phu Yen province.

The provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism is studying to offer a snorkelling tour for visitors to see coral reefs in Hon Yen landscape cluster.

If successful, local authorities will cooperate to preserve coral reefs in the area.

Tourists to Yen Islet could taste delicious seafood such as anchovy, squid, and shellfish at reasonable prices.

Hon Yen (Yen Islet) is located in Nhon Hoi hamlet, An Hoa commune, Tuy An district, 15km from Tuy Hoa city.

Phu Yen is one of the most beautiful provinces in the central region of Vietnam. It has nearly 190km of coastline bordered by zigzag mountains and dotted with many bays, lagoons, cliffs and reefs.

One of the best known destinations in the province is Dai Lanh Cape, which offers visitors a special feeling. There, one side is the green mountains and forests while the other side is the deep ocean with its blue colour combined with the light blue colour of the sky as well as multi-shaped vertical cliffs. Under the cape is Mon Beach, a very clean and stunning beach where freshwater flowing from high mountains creates a lovely picture.

Another favourite place for visitors is Da Dia Reef which was recognised as a national heritage site. Looking like an orderly beehive, the reef is made of thousands of pentagonal rocks, causing passers-by to stop and contemplate the unusual and magnificent work of nature.

The province has many large and small beaches that are described as primitive. Some beaches untouched by visitors are where local fishermen set sail to catch fish. Long Thuy Beach has swaying coconut trees while a fishing village is located in Vung Bau Beach. Bang Beach runs along the rock reef.

Phu Yen also offers visitors unique dishes using local food, such as the signature Ninh Hoa Nem (Ninh Hoa meat roll), girdle-cakes served with muong fish, O Loan cockles and Phu Yen steamed savory rice cakes. All these dishes have unique flavours of Phu Yen province where human and nature are closely bonded.

A culture-tourism week is taking place in the province from April 25th to May 1st with a view to promoting local unique culture and tourism potential.

The event features a wide range of activities including a tour to Dai Lanh Cape – which has green mountains, huge forests and deep oceans, and a festival featuring Bai Choi – a folk music genre practised in Vietnam’s central region and added to the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity./.
