Son Tra Peninsula – Fairy Fish Swimming to the Eastern Sea

Nga Do
Son Tra Peninsula is a low mountainous area fully covered by forest. It is one of the city’s lung. Son Tra Peninsula and the Hai Van Pass embrace the Han River and form a wide closed bay. From the air, the Son Tra Peninsula looks like a fairy fish swimming to the Eastern Sea. From the sea, you can see three mountain peaks: Co Ngua, Nghe and Mo Dieu. The highest peak is 693m above the sea level.

For tens of thousands of years, the peninsula was an island. However, alluvial soil deposited by rivers connected it with the mainland. From Son Tra Peninsula Da Nang, tourists can see the coast lines and enjoy Danang Bay, Danang City, the Han river, the Hai Van Pass and the Marble Mountains. In the early nineteenth century, the Nguyen Dynasty built many defensive fortresses and observation posts here. In 1858, the French fired the first shot on the peninsula and started their invasion of Vietnam.

Nowadays, the peninsula’s tourism potentials have been aroused. Some entertainment areas have been built along the beaches. Tourists can go paragliding and ride in motor boats. You can also go to fish farms, go around the peninsula by boat, go fishing offshore or go diving to enjoy the colourful coral reefs. A road around the peninsula along the city’s beaches and on to Hoi An Old Town has been built. Many tourist zones have been put into use or are being built. Visitors can stay here and swim at the beautiful beaches.

Son Tra tourism services include bathing, mountain climbing, scuba diving, fishing and visiting caged fish farms. Tourists will also be instructed how to catch cuttle-fish and shrimp, go water-skiing and paragliding and eat “goi ca” (fresh fish mixed with lemon and vegetables) on board.
