Observe a fisherman’s harbor village life from Dinh Cau Rock (Cua Temple), a temple and a lighthouse protecting boats at the mouth of the Duong Dong River. Perched on a rock at the estuary, the temple is dedicated to a sea goddess guarding the fishermen venturing into the open sea. The present-day structure built in 1937 features a picturesque shrine and a lighthouse tower with diagonal blue band around it. Climb a small 20 winding steps to reach a terrace under lush trees and watch fishing boats navigate the narrow river away from the coastal panorama with a sandy beach, palm trees and huts.

  • Went there with a friend, the Dinh Cậu locates on an isolated place overlook the sea. It is a religious place, so consider cover yourself with long sleeves and trousers. I recommend to climb to the lighthouse to enjoy the beautiful view there.
  • nice view from land to the sea. the location is just few feet to center of island. in the evening, lots of tourist visit this place.
