Update: May 06, 2016
About 90km from Phan Thiet and 300km from Ho Chi Minh City, Co Thach beach in Tuy Phong district, Binh Thuan province, is a must-see destination with its pristine beauty, colorful stones and clear water.

The best time to come here is from March to April, when most of the giant rocks are covered with green moss. In the sunshine, the rocks and clean water create a beautiful landscape.

The beach is one-kilometer long. It is covered by small stones of various colors and shapes, called seven-color stones. They were formed by tides, sea currents and waves, thousands of years ago.

Co Thach is very beautiful at dawn when the tide recedes, leaving behind green moss on stones. The twilight looks great at sunrise, which is perfect for photographers who want to take photos.

Co Thach Pagoda (Cave Pagoda) is also an attractive destination. The pagoda was built in the early nineteenth century. It was recognized as a national historic site in 1993. The pagoda is over 100 years old. It was built deep within cliff caves at 64m above sea level. Its unique architecture fascinates tourists.

From the top of the pagoda, tourists can see the pristine beach. The spot attracts scores of visitors on holidays and summer vacations each year.

Tuy Phong district also has other beautiful landscapes, such as Ghenh Son, Nam Hai Tomb, and yellow dunes - a promising destination for explorers and nature-lovers.
