Little girl and even young teenager I got up early to go to the beach to see the fishermen. Their ritual is amazing. Rain or shine, they brave the elements of nature and valiantly go fishing to feed us. Take some time to meet the fishermen of the quad resorts we present to you in this article and soak up their patience and courage… Happy reading! Must See In Vietnam Editor
From affordable to high-end, these are the resorts that offer the best fishing village experiences.
Zannier Hotels in Song Cau Town, Phu Yen Province has 73 villas with a traditional design. Located in a bay that has a private beach and surrounded by mountains, this resort brings tourists the feeling of a peaceful fishing village separated from the outside world. In early 2022, Zannier received the Kiwi Hotel Collection Award and was chosen as the best hotel by the beach.
The Rice Paddy Field villa’s decoration is inspired by the houses of Phu Yen fishermen. These villas are located by the lotus pond and rice field, and do not come with a private swimming pool.
Some experiences that you can try at the resort are coral diving, surfing, rowing basket boats or visiting either Mo O, a traditional fishing village, or Tuyet Diem salt field.
