Ke Ga Lighthouse, located on Ke Ga Island about 30 kilometers south of Phan Thiet City, is a must-see attraction in Binh Thuan Province where visitors can experience a fabulous panoramic view of the open sea.

Built in 1899, the lighthouse is not only an historical relic but also an attractive destination for visitors.

To reach the lighthouse, tourists can travel by bus or motorbike along the coast to Ke Ga Island or take a canoe from Phan Thiet City or from Vinh Hy Bay, Nha Trang City. At the lighthouse, tourists can hire a fishing boat priced at VND100,000 with a capacity for four people. Visitors can also stay on the island overnight for a spot of fishing which is an unforgettable experience.

The lighthouse with its unique architecture is about 60m tall. From that height, visitors are able to see a vast expanse of sea and sky, as well as enjoy cool ocean winds. The most beautiful moment to visit the lighthouse is at sunset.

Here are some snapshots taken by The Saigon Times Daily’s photo-journalist Kinh Luan, capturing the beauty of the lighthouse.
