It is on top of small mountain ( near the Jesus Christ statue), the way to Lighthouse is nice and it's more beautiful and splendid in summer when poincianas are blossomming.

A fun motorbike ride up the mountain to take in pretty views of Vung Tau! You'll also pass several stalls/roadside vendors if you'd like to enjoy a refreshment.
