Scuba Diving and Snorkeling in Mui Ne
The Best diving in Binh Thuan Province (or all of Vietnam for that matter) is at Ca Na Beach. The water is clear, the coral reefs are pristine, and the whole area as bursting with marine life. One thing Ca Na is lacking is very many tourists and the resorts to contain them.
Vietnam Scuba has a very “for Koreans, by Koreans” diving establishment there. The website has some English, but we have not confirmed if anyone on staff speaks English fluently.

Though all but undiscovered, Phu Quy Island Proposed Marine Protected Area also has a potential for scuba diving and snorkeling in coral reefs (but beware of sharks!).
From time to time, shipwrecks are discovered and salvaged off the coast of Binh Thuan Province. In the summer of 2004, three tonnes of coins and a cannon were discovered off Ham Tan District. Divers salvaged the coins from an ancient ship after finding a string of old shekels. Both the coins and the cannon were dated from 1822, during Minh Mang’s reign, according to officials in Binh Thuan. The most notable shipwreck salvage is know as the “Binh Thuan Shipwreck”
