Hon Chong Promontory

Hon Chong Promontory is one of the most famous attractions in Nha Trang with the perfect combiantion between rocky mountain and beautiful beach. Coming to Hon Chong Promontory, you not only enjoy the natural scenery but also hear the interesting stories about the legend of Hon Chong. 

Hon Chong is located 3.5km north from the centre of Nha Trang City, consists of two enormous groups of massive rocks lying by the sea at the foot of La San Hill with disorder lying rocks resulted from tide’s erosion. The grand group of rocks off-shore is called Hon Chong, the Chong Rock consisting a square-shaped block lying on a flatter and bigger one.

 

The large bounders of Hon Chong are combined to form such an imbalance position that they shock anyone who looks at them for the first time. One by one, the boulders stack on each other, supporting and conflicting at the same time. The largest one has the size of a small hill, it makes the foundation to hold another huge boulder which has the size of a house on its peak. View from the sea, there is a handprint with 5 fingers, which nowadays still confuses and intrigues visitors, historians and scientists alike. 

 

According to the legend, once upon the time, when a giant man was sitting fishing there, a giant fish swallowed the bait and pulled him away. He tried to pull himself back with a fishing-rod in hand, pressing the other hand against the massive rock leaving the easily-seen imprints. On the rocky ground, several rocks stand strangely on one another such as two rocks standing upright with another big rock lying between like a big stone gate to another group of rocks. The second group of rocks bears the shape of a woman sitting facing the sea. It’s called Hon Vo, the Wife, that has a close meaning with Hon Chong, the Husband.

 

Beach in Hon Chong Promontory has been recently explored for tourism development. In the past, tourists who would like to come here had to overcome steep hills and walk around. Tran Phu Street is now extended into La San Hill. Running along the coast towards the northeast from the city center, tourists will set foot on Hon Chong.
