Nice view for some photos but nothing really special. Put on good shoes when you walk out because it's rocks all the way and check when the tide is low

If you want to visit the island you must go at low tide. Check with your hotel to find low tide. You can find great views from the peninsula overlooking the island.

As the title says, not much to see at all. Have to time it right as well with the tide as if you wait or spend too much time there you will gt stranded with the high tide. I personally wouldn't recommend this to anyone....More

You will have to look up the Tide table for the Vungtau area and see when it is low tide. There us no fixed "best" time to go to the island because the tidetimes are constantly shifting.
