BINH THUAN — Co Thach Beach in Tuy Phong District's Binh Thanh Commune is a must-see destination in the central province of Binh Thuan as it has a pristine beauty, yellow sands and colourful stones.

Located in a deserted area 90km from Phan Thiet City, the beach has clear water and quiet waves. The beach is covered with small stones in various colours and shapes, pushed to the shore for thousands of years. The stony surface – about 1km long and 200-300m wide – looks stunning as the colourful stones glisten under the sunlight.

Co Thach also has giant rocks with different shapes and legends associated with them. One rock looks like an elephant and another like an ostrich. The giant rocks are an ideal place for fishing or relaxing at the seaside.

Located near the beach, Co Thach Pagoda (Cave Pagoda) is also an attractive destination. The pagoda was built on a low mountain in 1835-36 and has been recognised as a national historic site. It attracts thousands of pilgrims and tourists a year. — VNS
