    The US magazine Forbes has listed Whale Island in the central province of Khánh Hòa among the 10 must-visit diving destinations this year.

    Whale Island, with an average water temperature of around 28 degrees Celsius, is known for its macro gems hidden among the lush soft corals, which makes drift diving here that much more exciting, Forbes said.

    Located in Vân Phong Bay, around 100 kilometres from the beach town of Nha Trang, Whale Island or Hòn Ông, is one of the top destinations for scuba diving, kayaking and snorkeling in the country.

    Whales and whale sharks flock to the archipelago to feed on masses of krill and plankton between April and July, giving the place its name, the magazine wrote.

    The island remains almost untouched since there are no inhabitants in the area. 

    Known for its long stretches of beautiful beaches and scuba diving, Nha Trang has been attracting large numbers of foreign tourists in recent years.
