Lighthouse
Marvel the sights from the architecturally and historically valued Ngọn hải đăng Vũng Tàu. Built in 1907, and moved and rebuilt in 1911, the lighthouse shines light to the ships and boats as far as 35 sea-miles (64.75km) away, as well as monitoring and guiding vessels at sea with telescopes and other nautical equipment. See the four old French cannons weighting several tons, once used to protect the area from naval attacks. Observe the panoramic view of the whole of Vung Tau. A spiral staircase leads to the balcony on the top, which serves as a sight-seeing point. By using our Vung Tau vacation trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Ngọn hải đăng Vũng Tàu and other attractions in Vung Tau.

  • A nice walk and uphill road to the top of this hill, drink plenty of water, bit of a hard walk for old people but ok for everyone else, nice views from the top.  more »

  • Beautiful view of Vung Tau city. We took lots of nice photos here.
  • It's a bit hard to find the way up. You will need to rent a motorcycle as the road is hard to tackle on foot. The view, however, is really worth it. You can have the panoramic view of Vung Tau Beach and the city.
  • Nice view from the Lighthouse. Be careful if you are driving car since the street is not very wide at the top
  • The location offer a very good view to observe Vung Tau city from high point.
