Da Dia reef is a unique natural wonder considered “one of a kind” in Vietnam. The area features geologically distinctive basalt rocks formed through volcanic eruptions and suitable conditions, resulting in columnar rocks with hexagonal and pentagonal cross-sections distributed over a relatively wide coastal area.
