Explore Vinh Hy Bay by kayak or catamaran, admire a rainbow of corals whilst snorkelling clear waters, or explore nearby fishing villages and discover the ancient culture of the Cham people. Here at the threshold of land and sea, Amanoi offers an array of eye-opening experiences and activities.
Trekking the coastline
Hugged by hills, Amanoi is a gateway to the 29,000-hectare Nui Chua National Park which sits within the Nui Chua Unesco Biosphere Reserve - a rugged wonderland of diverse landscapes where hikers are rewarded with sweeping panoramas and myriad wildlife at every turn. From the resort, the network of trails can lead guests on family-friendly rambles to picnics on secret beaches, or more challenging treks to the rock formations of Bai Da or the bay-view drama of Goga Peak.
Fringing the bay, a kingdom of coral awaits between the waves. Explore the pristine reefs on a guided snorkelling expedition, and discover more than 350 varieties of staghorn, plate and brain corals found in the Vinh Hy Bay conservation area, as well as colourful shoals of tropical fish including triggerfish, angel fish, trumpet, damsel and bat fish that make their home here. Or glide over the surface of Vinh Hy Bay in one of Amanoi’s “glass” bottom kayaks. Made from durable, lightweight, shatter-resistant polycarbonate, the kayaks are completely transparent, allowing you to see whatever sea creatures happen to be swimming beneath you.
Journeys in the lost kingdom
Discover the ancient heritage of the region’s Cham people, who once dominated the coast of southern Vietnam, by exploring the ruins of 13th-century towered temple complex of Po Klong Garai. Later, enjoy the sunset as a Cham Master conducts a sacred blessing and a traditional Cham family feast is served beneath the star-strewn sky.
