Does anyone have any information on travel to Ly Son island? Sounds like it is relatively undiscovered at this point.

Ly Son Island some 30 kilometers off the central province of Quang Ngai is better known as “the kingdom of garlic” thanks to its vast garlic fields with a pungent aroma.

I've read elsewhere that there is one boat per day that you need to pre-book with the port to get across. Can anyone confirm or deny?

yes, there is only one express boat from Sa Ky wharf to Ly Son island but in high-season, they shall serve one more express boat, do not worry about it. The boat daily start at 8 am and you have to come on time to line up and buy ticket. It costs 115,000 VND/ person, you have show your identity certificate. If you travel in group, you should pre-book.
