Ky Co is far from the mainland, so if you want to come here, you need to go on a canoe or follow the tour of the people in the Nhon Ly commune area.
Almost tours cost VND 210,000, including tickets to the island and swimming. If you want to enjoy seafood, the combo will cost VND 360,000. You can choose to tour of Bien Nho (0941337933). Usually, one tour will include 12-15 people.

Some notes when traveling to Quy Nhon
When you go to Ky Co, you should not take freshwater baths immediately, because the tours will often include coral watching packages in Hon Seo island. So, bathing when you come back from Hon Seo will be more convenient.
In order not to affect the schedule, you should go to Ky Co before going to Eo Gio because the time to visit by Ky Co is not fixed but based on the number of travelers and depends on each trip.
Remember to wear sunglasses and apply sunscreen before swimming to protect your eyes and skin.
