Situated by the mouth of the Duong Dong River, Dinh
Cau Rock is considered the symbol of Phu Quoc where sand, sea,
sun, and stone blend in perfect harmony. It is not only an
odd-shaped scenic beauty but also a quaint sacred holy place. It
is a combination of Buddhist temple and lighthouse that was built
in 1937 as a dedication to Thien Hau (the Goddess of the sea) who
provides protection for the fisherman and vessels that head out to
the open waters.
Local fishermen pray to God here before setting sail. The romantic
steps take you to the top, where you can feel the gentle sea
breeze, watch sunset over the eroded rock formation and enjoy a
peaceful view of the Duong Dong River.
