Change the wind, camp overnight on the paradise green island of Cu Lao Cau

Translated by Bing
With a beautiful wild scenery, although tourism services have not been developed, there is a lack of motels and hotels for guests to stop, but this island has still become a favorite destination for many travelers, flocking to change the wind and camp overnight.

Cau Island (also known as Cau Island) is a small island in Phuoc The commune, Tuy Phong district, Binh Thuan province. This place has a length of 1.5km, an area of about 140 hectares and is completely separate from the mainland, which is likened to a "green paradise" by tourists because of its beautiful wild scenery.



To get to Cu Lao Cau Island, visitors can only access by canoe, motorboat or fisherman's boat with many options of departure points such as from Ca Na port, Phuoc The port or Lien Huong ferry wharf. Travel time on the sea is about 30-50 minutes, depending on the weather situation as well as the type of vehicle used
