Whale Island in Nha trang

Whale Island is approximately a 90 minute drive north of Nha Trang located on the very quiet and beautiful Van Phong Bay. A quick boat across the bay brings you to the beautiful sheltered bay of Whale Island with its turquoise colored water and white sandy beach. Every year between April and July, the whales and the whale sharks come to stay in the archipelago to feed themselves on the masses of krill and the plankton; hence this is where the name ‘Whale Island’ is derived.
