Dinh Cau Rock (Cua Temple), Phu Quoc Island
(3.8/5 based on 70+ 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. By using our Phu Quoc Island travel itinerary maker, you can arrange your visit to Dinh Cau Rock (Cua Temple) and other attractions in Phu Quoc Island.

  • A lot of people come here to celebrate the sunset, and the truth is very beautiful. The temple itself is too cute. Worth a visit

  • A must-see when you visit Phu Quoc. The sunset is marvelous here. The nearby cafe shop (Phố Biển) also a good place to sit. 
  • If you're on Phu Quoc, one should look at this temple, which is situated on a rock in the Harbour, definitely. The environment is very come down and dirty and the temple is not particularly beautiful.
