Binh Ba – ‘Island of lobster’ on Cam Ranh Bay
If the south central region is considered to be the ‘kingdom’ of farmed lobsters, Binh Ba Island (Cam Binh Commune, Cam Ranh City, Khanh Hoa Province) is regarded as the capital of that ‘kingdom’.
The island is home to hundreds of lobster rafts on Cam Ray Bay, helping make the product the specialty of the whole region.

On top of that, grilled lobster with a locally-made salt and green chili sauce is Binh Ba’s signature dish, appealing to any gourmets.

The enlightenment of lobster farming with cages and rafts in Binh Ba has brought the products of lobster, blue lobster and red lobster into specialties of the whole South Central region.
Domestic tourism places high hopes on the upcoming holidays of the Reunification Day (April 30) and Labor Day (May 1) will be bustling with travel activities.
