Dinh Cau Rock (Cua Temple), Phu Quoc Island

(3.7/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This little temple is interesting however it really only does take 10 minutes to check it out. It's a relaxing way to spend a morning or arvo if you combine it with a stroll along the jetty or along t...  more »
  • I stumbled across this place, and it was pretty, and the view of the sea/rocks made for a lovely 20 minutes walk/photo opportunity. Not a must-see but nice if you're in the area. 
  • At the mouth of the river/harbour there is a rock mass with built over a lighthouse and a small temple. The place is very scenic at sunset, especially if someone is in prayer and feel the deep tolling of the Bell. Being raised is also beautiful views of the harbour with its colourful boats. Unfortunately a narrow and steep stairway preclude a visit to those who have difficulty walking.
