The island light house (about a 45
minute drive South West from Mui Ne) of Khe Ga is the tallest in
Vietnam and was built by the French in 1897 (and it is still
operating). Tien Thanh beach is the longest continuous beach in the
province and is even hotter and sunnier than Mui Ne.
There are a number of new resorts on the beach. It is spectacularly beautiful--and well worth a visit, but you should expect the worst sunburn of your life, at least if you do not take excessive precautions. The bare, windswept dunes (which often bury the highway) reflect the light, creating an intense glare. Unlike Mui Ne, there are no groves of palm trees for shade. Again, the view is incredible--we recommend you visit, but unless you are looking for isolation, you may not want to book your whole vacation here. Because of the isolation however, there is some rare wildlife at the beach, including otters.
A mined area lies 1.5 miles South of Ke Ga island; the area is charted and extends approximately 10 miles North to South and 7 miles Eeast to West. Another mined area lies 10 miles South West.
