Dinh Cau Rock (Cua Temple), Phu Quoc Island

(90+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.
