Ganh Da Dia-its abnormal beauty
The beauty of the place is not for seeing through pictures, you have to reach the place and see it with your naked eyes to find how it truly is. It’s a magic of the nature, thousands of stone plates stacking on one another in the kiln must have taken millions of years of the nature to create. The unusual strong waves attack the stones non-stoppingly creating billions of water foam covering the coastline in white.
Walking along Ganh Da Dia, sometimes you will catch holes that contain rain and sea water, making themselves small swimming pools. You can lean your body against blocks and relax it in the seawater and inhale the fresh air, watch the crabs, starfishes and jelly fishes stuck in the pool after the waves leave.
If you feel tired, stop by Bai Bang (the beach of Bang tree) to take a short rest under the green trees, enjoy the fresh and delicious seafood and breathe the special air of Tuy Hoa sea.
