Seaweed field in Ninh Thuan

Located 10km south of Phan Rang-Thap Cham city, a beautiful seaweed field stretching more than 2km along a beach in Tu Thien village, Ninh Thuan province has become a magnet for tourists.

According to locals, the best time to see the green seaweed field is in the early morning and at sunset. This is when the tide is at its lowest level and the sunlight is great for taking photos.

Tourists who visit this unique attraction will have a chance to witness wonderful scenery, with the seaweed clinging to the rocks and covering most of the beach in Tu Thien village, Phuoc Dinh commune, Thuan Nam district. Also, tourists can swim and enjoy fresh air in the field in the early morning, admire the beauty of the seaweed field at dawn and take lovely photos.

Apart from seaweed, the area is home to many marine species such as starfish, snails, coral and sea grapes. The seaweed field welcomes hundreds of visitors a day for their discovery tours.

There is also a seaweed field located near Mui Dinh wind power field in Phuoc Dinh commune which is worth seeing.

 
Recommendations for tourists visiting the seaweed field:
 
- Go to the beach from 4-9am or 3-6pm on day 14 to day 20 of every lunar month because the tide is low at that time.
- Bring sandals, umbrellas and sunscreen and prepare for ways to avoid sunstroke.
- Collect bottles and plastic bags before leaving the field.
- Not pick seaweed, snails or fish to protect the natural environment.
