Named Hon Mun (Ebony) because in the south east of the island, it has high-rise cliffs with dangerous wattles forming caves and grottoes, especially its stones are as black as ebony, which could rarely be found in other areas.

In the black-rock caves of Hon Mun, every year flocks of swallows migrate to the area and build their nests. Hon Mun sea was planed as the first marine protected area of Viet Nam. Due to the island’s location adjacent to the hot sea-currents from the equator, suitable to the development conditions of corals and various types of tropical sea creatures, the sea bed of Hon Mun is home to an abundant and diverse group of marine species.
