Nice terminal with restaurants close by. Catching the Greenlines ferry service back to Ho Chi Minh City. Easy to get to in cab or scooter. Nice view!

Apparently there's a ferry service from here but I'm not sure. Greenlines operates from the other end of the beach. Vinaexpress had an office here but nobody there ??? Some seaside restaurants here and a view of the bay, ships and fishing boats.
