Dinh Cau Rock (Cua Temple), Phu Quoc Island

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.

Where to stay in Phu Quoc Island

The southwestern coast of Phu Quoc Island offers the greatest range of accommodations. Resorts of all sizes nestle up close to the golden sands there, with many of the more luxurious options boasting their own private beaches and beach bars. Farther out of town, you'll find a number of lodges and hotels, positioned in scenic coastal spots or along the main roads of the island's interior, with the latter providing particularly convenient access to the national park areas.
