It takes time and effort, but Ly Son will not let you down because of its wild beauty and countless beautiful photo angles after the trip. Here are a few virtual living places not to be missed when coming to this beautiful island.
1. Arch Gate at sunset
Referring to Ly Son, it is impossible not to mention the archway. This place is considered as the “brand symbol” of the central island with lonely garlic specialties. The eruption of the volcano miraculously millions of years ago created an arc like a gate of an arched nest with a height of about 2.5m and a glossy black lava rock with many strange shapes. Perhaps it is the unspoiled beauty from the hands of the Creator that has created the tourist destination with a very natural attraction.
Located in the west of the island, this is also one of the prime locations to watch the crimson sun slowly setting into the sea after a long day of sunshine. A small tip for those of you who like to shoot at the archway is to shoot against the light with shapes that reveal the contours of the body; Make sure to just raise the camera and take a good photo.
2. Garlic field seen from above
Referring to Ly Son, it is impossible to ignore the garlic fields, which have long become a specialty of this land. Standing from the top of Thoi Loi looking down at the fields stretching with two colors of blue and white lying close to each other in the early dawn and far away is the immense sea, naturally seeing the open sky and clouds appear before your eyes. , seeing in my heart fluttering wondering why my country is so beautiful.
Because it is grown on sand, keeping the garlic plant moist is an extremely important part. Ly Son people have installed an hourly sprinkler irrigation system in each field. If you accidentally pass through this place at the right time to water the garlic and quickly capture that moment, you will surely be surprised. When the tiny drops of water sprayed up with the sun shining on the smooth green background and the slight aroma of garlic, that feeling was truly unforgettable.
3. Coconut beach in the small island

At the coconut beach, there are also tables and chairs and a very beautiful swing to take hundreds of photos.
