Arriving at Ganh Dau cape, visitors have the opportunity to see the blue sea, undulating cliffs, and the far-off Cambodian border. Many people compare the beautiful island of Phu Quoc to the shape of a fish wagging its tail and swimming to the north. Located at the "fish mouth" position is Ganh Dau cape, where the primeval forest stops in front of the sea.

Ganh Dau is located in the northwest of the island city, about 30 kilometers from Duong Dong town. For many visitors, this is a relatively new place.

Ganh Dau owns a natural rock formation where visitors can sit and enjoy the scenery. Over thousands of years, the waves hit the shore, the cliffs over time turned into strange shapes. The stone surface can be slippery because of moss, so visitors should be careful when walking.

Fishermen's fishing boats also depart from this cape to the sea, promising to bring back delicious catches. From here, visitors can visit anchovy production sites on the windy coastal road.
