Co Thach Stone Bank

The bank stands out in one side of the beach with multi-colored stones, from light yellow, brown and dark purple to pure white, bluish, pinkish and red…

All colored stones mixing together to look like a work of art that Nature has fondly given to the land of Tuy Phong. Accordingly, Co Thach Beach, especially its stone bank, has become a well-known tourist attraction.


The stones on the bank are quite various in sizes and colors; when being shone upon, they become fancy and sparkling as if they are dancing in the light. Numerous studies show that the diversity of the stones in sizes and colors is a direct result of constant influences of the tide, sea current and see waves to the stones.
