One of the main tourist attractions in Mui Dinh is a lighthouse which stands alone in Hon May, a small mountain by the sea. The closest residential area is Son Hai Village in Phuoc Dinh Commune.

Once passing the village for 1km the tourist bus must stop and from there tourists will have to leg it across the immense sand running alongside the blue sea. It is a five-kilometer stretch of road to reach the foot of Mui Dinh Mountain. Luckily, you can jump on the back of a motorbike taxi if you don’t fancy the long walk.

Right at the foot of the mountain is a primitive, beautiful, white sand beach with rock cliffs and of course the clear, blue seawater. The lighthouse is still a half hour walk on foot on a sloping street.

Mui Dinh lighthouse, constructed by the French in 1904 at a height of 177 meters above the sea level, is still an integral part of the community serving vessels at sea.
