At four hours from Saigon, flight included, you are in another world, in the heart of an archipelago, on an island, in a setting of coconut palms, transparent water, coral and multicolored fishes from the window of the bungalow buried in the tropical vegetation.
You are in a bungalow of the ecolodge of Whale Island. Fan and mosquito net, no air conditioner. Natural decoration, elementary comfort, for a stay in the nature, at the peace of the sun course and the tides.
This morning, the birds woke you up, and the lapping of the waves invited you to an early morning bath.
The divers went by boat to discover the coral reefs of the archipelago.
For the beautiful discoveries, there is also the marine reserve of Whale Island. You will be able to overview with a mask and a snorkel the protected sea life, the coral that has been planted and the artificial reefs that house a multitude of marine species.
The afternoon will then come probably with a little wind. We will choose to sail a catamaran or windsurf. Others took the sea kayaks for a picnic trip on a deserted beach.
Sportsmen and hikers wait until the sun goes down to take the marked trail that goes around the island. They might surprise some muntjac, a fishing eagles or talkative parrots.
A boat is available to discover the archipelago, visit a fishing village or see a Whale Temple.
At the sunset, we will meet, we will exchange experiences of travel around a cocktail on the terrace.
Don't worry, you could also decide to just do nothing and to simply enjoy the time lying on the beach a sugar cane juice in hand, looking at the spectacle of the sea and fishermen pulling their nets.
You can spend a day of happiness on the island of La Baleine. And this happiness also passes through the taste buds, in the restaurant where you will be served a Vietnamese market cuisine.
