Đầm Môn Peninsula

Đầm Môn Peninsula –boasting an area of 128km ²—is one of the destinations that the World Tourism Organization has conducted a survey on and is highly appreciated. The location has all the natural conditions optimal for the development of eco-tourism: the climate, coastline, forests, landscapes, ecosystem, ports and supply of marine products, etc. And the most important fact is that all of the conditions are completely and originally natural.

In June 2002, an 18.5km road was started from the foot of the mountain pass Cổ Mã to Đầm Môn, and activated the development of tourism in Vân Phong Bay. Taking the new route throughout the peninsula, visitors can see houses as half sunk in the sand, the immense white sand dunes stretching out into the distance with no traces of humans, which provides a sense  of crossing a vast desert. At the end of the dune areas is the road from Đầm Môn to Đại Lãnh. The last point of the journey is a small fishing village located in a bay, quiet and shady all year long with evergreen coconut trees. Its name is Đầm Môn. Đầm Môn has three communes: Lower Đầm Môn, Upper Đầm Môn and Xuân Đừng.
