Gành Đá Dĩa translates to “The Sea Cliff of Stone Plates.” This beach contains basalt rock formations similar to those seen at Ireland’s Giant’s Causeway.
These rocks were formed the same way as their Irish twins. A volcanic eruption met the sea and the lava cooled in hexagonal shapes. The formation in Vietnam is smaller than the one in Ireland, but is still a sight to behold. Also, the temperatures are much more tolerable.
Since 1998, the Gành Đá Dĩa and its estimated 35,000 columns have been listed as a National Heritage site.
There are several restaurants and parking areas near the entrance to this site.
