Located in Hung Luong Hamlet in Nhon Ly Commune, actually, Eo Gio is cliffs joining together to form an arc. People call it the "wind channel" since it is formed from two mountains holding a corner of the sea that resembles the shape of a funnel. Thanks to the imaginative human mind, the high cliffs with their strange shapes are described as a buffalo or a crocodile looking onto the ocean. Local people call them various fun names and you can make up your own.
Eo Gio’s appeal comes from the fact that it has rarely been touched by the human. In particular, the tourist service is not available. It's a good idea to spend your time soaking in the beach or enjoying the beauty of wild rock. Moreover, you can also climb up to the peak to get the panorama of the site as well as feel the wind and the sound of waves offshore.
