I've heard about Ly Son beach, Vietnam but I have not much information on it. and I'm very interested in discovering new destinations. Can anyone give me some ideas about it?
How transportation should I use? Time to stay there?..
The district covers approximately 9.97 km² of land, on two off-shore volcanic islands in the East Sea, and a few islets. There are no excursions or tours to Ly Son Island, but you can easily get to the island by yourself. The ferry speed boat to Ly Son starts at 8:00from Sa Ky port (to search in google maps write Cang Sa Ky) and trip takes about 1 hour 10-20 minutes. This is the only way to get island. To buy ticket you need to have ID. Buy ticket before, because it takes quite long time. Ferry ticket to Ly Son cost 115k dong, ticket for motorbike cost 50k dong, but additionally you'll need to pay loading on ship 40k dong. Also you can leave your motorbike in the parking on port (about 5k dong per day).

First, you need to take the plane to Chu Lai airport and then take a bus to Sa Ky Port with 250,000VND per person. Getting to Ly Son Island, you need to catch a ferry and there are 2 times in one day (8a.m and 14:45 p.m). It takes 1 hour to get the island. You can use taxi for moving or motorbike to save money (150,000VND per motorbike).
There are many places you can choose to enjoy such as The small Ly Son Island, To Vo Gate, Hang Pagoda, Thoi Loi summit and a range of cuisine here.
Time to stay about 3-4 days is enough to discover and enjoy the Island.

We were three driving on 2 motorbikes from Da Nang to Sa Ky port in Quang Ngai province.
The ferry's schedule is in the morning only, at 7am and 8am. A round trip costs $10usd and it takes 1.5 hrs to reach the Ly Son island. The accommodations here are limited, since they've just have the electricity a year ago. You may stay in a hotel, $15 per night with double bed or homestay is also a good choice to experience local life style, approximately $4 per person per night.
Within a day, you may explore all destinations in the main island and I highly recommend to travel by motorbikes, $5 per day, even though taxi or motorbike taxi is available. During night time, there are just some seafood street shops and coffee shops near the port. I prefer go sleep early and get up early in the morning to catch the sun rise, it is spectacular.
Next day, if you wanna explore the small island, you're supposed to be at the port at 7am. The round trip costs $3 and the last departure from the small island back to the main on is at 2pm. Go sightseeing, swimming and coral reef snorkeling are prominent recreation here. Food and drinks are available but not many options.
In my trip, I spent 1 and half day to camp on the shore of this small island. Since, people haven't been exploited much, the natural beauties are preserved. It was the unforgettable experience, our local tour guide showed us the night hunting as we snorkeled only with glasses and arrow guns. We prepared food naturally on shore and enjoy talking around the fire camp.
The third day, we headed back the main island and booked our tickets back to the mainland. The ferry departs at 1pm.
In spite of the less developed tourist accommodation and facilities, we enjoy its outback. Hopefully, for the next trip we'll see a tourist paradise island.
