The journey to Fingernail Island

On the day before our trip we went khổng lồ the harbor of An Thoi & searched for a boatman to lớn start our trip khổng lồ Fingernail Islvà in the early morning of the next day. The crossing from An Thoi to Hon Mong Tay takes about 45 minutes.

The price for a trip is about VND 800,000. If a lunch with delicious seafood is included, the price will be about VND 1,000,000. That is the equivalent of 40 euros for a boat and that is in our opinion a quite good price for a trip like that.


Unfortunately, we had bad luông xã with the weather on the evening before our trip và it rained cats và dogs on Phu Quoc. Therefore we had some big waves on our way khổng lồ Fingernail Isl&. Sometimes the boat was in a dangerous position on the open sea between the islands. Luckily, we aren’t seasiông chồng, otherwise we probably wouldn’t have sầu survived the journey.

Hon Mong Tay is one of the most southern islands of the An Thoi Archipelago và so it took us quite a while until we reached our destination. But at the over we were rewarded by a beautiful paradise-like beach.

Info: If the trip on your own to Fingernail Island is too complicated, then you can consider doing a day trip, where the isl& is part of it.

Fingernail Island (Hon Mong Tay)

The very first glimpse that you get of Fingernail Islvà before yo arrive there is just beyond words. We were also very lucky that no one else was on the island when we arrived. The beach was just lonely và it just looked lượt thích a postcard image.


The beach is really small & has just the island’s jungle behind it. The sand is magnificently White, the water clear và turquoise and the view at the archipelago is just awesome.



We didn’t vị much on the islvà. We went swimming, relaxed, took some pictures và videos & just enjoyed the quiet atmosphere of the isl&. That was exactly how we imagined our trip khổng lồ Fingernail Islvà. The images that we saw on the mạng internet didn’t promise too much. We were totally impressed!




About an hour later we had some delicious seafood for lunch. Our boatman brought a small barbecue và prepared everything freshly on site. Just a little side dish was missing. We had 2 huge crabs & 3 fish for 2 persons. More than enough to lớn get full!


After a while, two more boats came to lớn the island with a few visitors. But even with some more people on the island it was still very lonely. Also, those visitors were only local people & therefore I think Fingernail Isl& is still a little secret tip.


Our conclusion for Fingernail Island

If you are visiting Phu Quoc & travel around the islvà & its surroundings, then you shouldn’t miss Fingernail Isl& in the south as well! The islvà is not really advertised, which is in general pretty good. But most probably you will have sầu lớn find a boat for that trip on your own.
