Mong Tay Island is located in the south, about 14 km far away from Phu Quoc Island, lying between Ba Lua Archipelago and Hai Tac (Kien Giang) islands. However, Mong Tay Island … does not belong to any archipelago. The island is hidden behind usual maritime route, so few ships pass by. Therefore, it is also called as “lonely island”. Originally, this island is called Mong Tay (Nail) Island because there are many Mong Tay Trees on the island, also known as Hai Son Tung Tree. But now there are very few trees on the island because mainland local people took it out to ornament their home.

The journey discovering Mong Tay starts from An Thoi Port, in An Thoi Town, Phu Quoc.
