Along with Mong Tay island in the South of Phu Quoc Island, May Rut Trong island is the most beautiful island in Phu Quoc today. Nicknamed the “gem” of the ocean, May Rut Trong is a popular destination for young people to seek out because of its pristine beauty, with little human intervention.

If you join Rooty Trip’s island canoe tour, you will have the opportunity to visit May Rut Trong island and experience many interesting activities. Let’s explore this place with Rooty Trip!

Discover May Rut Trong island Island in Phu Quoc

May Rut Trong Phu Quoc – A hidden gem in the middle of the ocean

1. Introduction to May Rut Trong island, Phu Quoc

1.1 Where is May Rut Trong island Phu Quoc Island?

In fact, there are 2 Hon May Rut islands in the South of Phu Quoc Island, which are May Rut Trong island and Hon May Rut Ngoai. However, the most beautiful one, which is also the island mentioned in this article, is May Rut Trong island.

May Rut Trong island is one of the large islands located in the South, belonging to the An Thoi archipelago, Hon Thom commune, Phu Quoc city, Kien Giang province. This is one of the 5 most beautiful small islands on Phu Quoc island and is extremely popular with tourists. This place is about 20 minutes from An Thoi port by canoe.

1.2 Why is it called “May Rut Trong island”?

Currently, there is no document that accurately records the origin of the name “Hon May Rut”. However, there are some popular hypotheses that are passed down by word of mouth:

  • Hidden location 

May Rut Trong island is hidden behind Hon May Rut Ngoai, giving the impression of being hidden behind a “veil of clouds”. Therefore, it is called “May Rut Trong island”.

  • Special ocean currents 

The sea around May Rut Trong island has strong currents, creating large whirlpools. When viewed from a distance, these whirlpools look like “clouds” swirling and “pulling” into the sea.

  • Folklore

According to legend, in the past, there was a fairy who often flew in the sky and stopped to rest on this island. This place has a beautiful scene like a fairyland, making the fairy reluctant to leave. Therefore, the island is called “Hon May Rut” to remember the fairy.

2. When is the best time to go?

You can go to May Rut Trong island almost any time of the year. Of course, it is not advisable to go on stormy days because the big waves will be very dangerous, especially if you go by canoe. On rainy days, you can still go to May Rut Trong island normally if the waves are not too big because in Phu Quoc, unlike many other provinces, the main means of transportation is large boats, which are much larger than the boats you usually go to in Nha Trang.

Even on rainy days, the sea water on May Rut Trong island or even Mong Tay is still very clear and blue. Of course, it will not be as beautiful as on sunny days.

You can go to May Rut Trong island any time of the year

And just like the best time to travel to Phu Quoc, the dry season from November to April of the following year is the most suitable time to go to May Rut Trong island. Especially in March and April, while from November to February the weather is sunny but the waves are still a bit rough. During this time, May Rut Trong island is absolutely stunning. Calm sea, white sand, clear blue water… Perfect for a beach trip.

3. How to get to May Rut Trong island Phu Quoc

To get to May Rut Trong island in Phu Quoc, you will need to travel by road to An Thoi port. Then you will have 2 options: take a large boat or a canoe to go from the port to May Rut Trong island or other beautiful islands in the South of Phu Quoc Island.

May Rut Trong island is about 60 minutes by boat or 20 minutes by canoe from An Thoi port. And I sincerely recommend that you take a day trip by canoe to the island, which is always healthy, cheap and safe, especially for small groups. I will explain in detail below.

Joining a canoe island tour is the best choice when visiting May Rut Trong island

Because whether you like it or not, even if you go to the port on your own, when you get to the island you will still have to choose one of these two options. If you take a large boat, the size of the boat they use for tours (not a small boat, it is not safe to go far), the rental price will be very high, around 5-10 million depending on the number of people in the group. It is easy to understand, because the capacity of the boat is for 50-60 people on weekdays, and at peak times this boat can hold hundreds of people. Another very reasonable option for those who like privacy, especially groups of 5 people or more, is to rent a private canoe (15 or 25 seats).

Of course, if you want to go to May Rut Trong island Phu Quoc, I think a canoe island tour is still the most worth considering, especially for small groups. You will be taken care of from a to z, food and drinks and filming and photography are all free, so it is very cost-effective. In general, I think going on a tour is the most delicious, economical and affordable option.

4. What to do on May Rut Trong island?

May Rut Trong island in Phu Quoc is a super beautiful island and when you come here, you cannot miss the interesting activities here:

  • Take a photos

For sure, I’m sure this is an experience you will definitely do, because with such a beautiful and charming place, why not take pictures? Especially here there are coconut trees and swings for virtual life, don’t miss it. Taking a Rooty Trip island canoe tour, you will definitely get countless virtual life photos and free flycam videos, you can’t post them all.

  • Swim

As I said above, the beach on May Rut Trong island Phu Quoc is a long beach with white, fine sand, clear blue water, and especially shallow, so swimming is extremely enjoyable and safe. Speaking of the beach, I think the one on May Rut Trong is more beautiful and suitable for swimming than Mong Tay island.

Swimming at May Rut Trong island is a must-do

  • Snorkeling

Another activity that you should experience when going to May Rut Trong island, because the coral in the area of Hon May Rut is one of the top places with beautiful coral in Phu Quoc. However, most people prefer to experience the activities I shared above rather than snorkeling.

5. What to eat on May Rut Trong island

Of course, seafood is still what you should enjoy on May Rut Trong island. The island is small, but there are a few restaurants for you to choose from. The seafood here is all fresh and delicious. But you should be prepared to pay a lot more here than in Duong Dong town. And a little note for some of you who are going on a tour, you should choose a tour that includes all meals, because many of you ask me to book a day tour. Rooty Trip’s Island Canoe Tour includes lunch, so don’t worry.

In addition, you can enjoy coffee, soft drinks, and coconut water here. Sit or lie down on the beach and enjoy it!

6. Take a one-day island canoe tour

As I shared above, taking a one-day tour of May Rut Trong island is a great option to consider when planning to visit this beautiful island. And Rooty Trip’s island canoe tours don’t just go to May Rut Trong island, but also combine with Hon Mong Tay, Hon Buom, Hon Gam Ghi, Hon Thom… depending on the tour. These islands are all the most beautiful and worth-visiting islands in Phu Quoc.

Most importantly, I’m sure you’ll not only have a great trip, but with Rooty Trip’s great deals, you’ll also have a more economical and enjoyable trip. Don’t hesitate to contact Rooty Trip for more details!

7. Things to remember when going to May Rut Trong island

  • Bring all necessary personal items: hat, cap, swimsuit… and snorkeling gear if you are traveling on your own.
  • If you are going during the rainy season, you should carefully consider the weather before going to May Rut Trong island because on many days the waves are high and the canoes cannot dock. And this May Rut Trong island island does not have a back side like other islands.
  • It is best to go in the morning near noon because the sea water at this time will be clear and blue, which is convenient for swimming, taking pictures and snorkeling.
  • Prepare beautiful clothes and sexy swimsuits to take great “virtual life” photos.

I hope the above information has helped you answer your questions about where May Rut Trong island Phu Quoc is, how to get there and what to do. Hopefully, with my own experience and information about extremely favorable one-day May Rut Trong island tours or private canoe rentals in Phu Quoc, you will have a fun and memorable trip to May Rut Trong island in Phu Quoc!
