A beautiful sunset on Phu Quoc seen from Cau Temple

It’s a big mistake to travel to Phu Quoc without visiting Dinh Cau (Cau Temple) which is known as the island’s symbol, especially when the sun gets ready to set on the sea.

It will be an unforgettable memory of your trip to the Pearl Island.

From the center of Duong Dong Town, tourists stroll on April 30 Street then turn left to Bach Dang Street for about 200 meters to get to the temple, where the sea, sand, sunlight and stones mingle into a romantic landscape.

The holy temple, which was established in the 17th century, is located on the unique location of a majestic stone edge overlooking the sea where waves lap high making for a spectacular view. There is a balcony where tourists can admire numerous large rocks in monstrous shapes that people can imagine in anyway they want.

Once arriving at the foot of the stone edge, tourists should walk the 29 steps to get to the temple which worships Cau a deity who apparently controls the sea and helps fishermen and their boats out of storms. That’s why fishermen usually come here to pray for peace and success prior to their trips. From the temple tourists can close their eyes listening to the waves or admiring a beautiful sky sparkling on the sea surface. Looking to the right side tourists can watch an animated Duong Dong Port where hundreds of boats are anchoring or a peaceful beach with yellow, soft sand and pure water on the left side.

From the temple tourists can even see a busy Duong Dong Market far, far away. When the sun is setting it’s time for squid-catching junks to get to work. Dozens of lights bobbing on the sea make a fanciful scene to many people.

Each year on big holidays and Lunar New Year, local people and fishermen gather at the temple especially on the 15th and 16th day of the lunar October for a huge festival.

The temple opens daily with entrance free.
