Hon Chong Promontory


Hon Chong is located 3.5km north from the centre of Nha Trang City, Khanh Hoa Province.

It consists of massive rocks lying on top of one another.

Hon Chong is divided into two parts. One part is situated offshore and the other is in the sand dunes at the Cu Lao fishing hamlet. The offshore cluster includes layer after layer of massive rock emerging from the sea. These layers of rocks act as natural wave breakers.

The Hon Chong Promontory, located in the sand dunes, looks like the work of a giant, who carelessly put several massive rocks together. On one side of the rock, facing the sea, there is a deep handprint with the five fingers close together.
