The islet is located about 20 km from the center of Quy Nhơn, a coastal town in south-central Bình Định Province.

As its name suggests, the islet is dry and there are no trees. And no one lives there. It is very small and wild but it attracts a large number of adventurers and tourists because of its pristine, untouched and peaceful beauty.

Visitors can enjoy a range of typical beach activities, including playing adventure beach games and snacking on seafood. A boat or jet ski is available for rent at VNĐ300,000 – 500,000 (US$13-22) per group or VNĐ50,000 per person for a ride.

Khô Islet is also an ideal spot for coral diving in Quy Nhơn, apart from Cù Lao Xanh and Kỳ Co islands. The islet is also well-known as a preservation area for turtles. If you stay overnight, you will have an opportunity to see turtles that come to this small island to reproduce.
