After arriving at the site, visitors will take a boat to the lighthouse (VND50,000/person/round trip). At low tide, a strip of sand connecting the mainland to the Ke Ga cape will appear. Like many other lighthouses, it is used to help captains navigate during the night. The lamp in the tower can illuminate for nearly 40 km. Photo: Tonkin.
