Cu Lao Xanh means Green Island, located in Nhon Chau commune, Quy Nhon city, Binh Dinh province. It is considered a charming pearl on the sea, featured with an amazing green of sea water.
The islet is covered by a green foliage; therefore it is seen at distance as a green island rising from the green water of the sea and under a blue sky. But visitors will mostly enjoy the wonderful view of the islet at sunset, with small fishing boats beating the waves. The small island is known for a lighthouse built some hundred years ago legends say fairies used to bathe in, hence its name, Suoi Tien (Fairy’s Spring).
The residents on Cu Lao Xanh are scattered, mainly elders and kids, so you will have chance to experience the life of a deserted island. You can join fishing with local people to catch seafood and set up a BBQ party on the beach.
