Green moss overwhelming Co Thach beach: a paradise-like destination in springtime - (19/02/2016)

When mentioning to Co Thach, we think of a romantic and paradise-like beach with 7-color rocky expanse, blue sea, white sand, natural caves formed by the actions of tides and sea, … those fascinate many infatuated hearts. This season, which is dubbed as “the moss-hunting season” since all the large stones here would be covered by green moss at that time, Co Thach beach becomes charming and traps numerous footsteps of travelers thanks to its unique distinctive traits of green moss and stones.

Co Thach beach, an ensemble of multistory rocks, is the earliest place to welcome the sunny season. This year, the green moss season comes as the cold winter does not want to leave while the spring eagerly covers. A not-enough-1-km beach is fully covered by 7-color rocks with green moss and waves crashing on the shore.
Although green moss is not cared, this natural aquatic species appears ubiquitously and loom around the corner of odd-shaped rocks. They were formed by the impact of tide, sea current and seawater since hundreds of years ago. Surrounding the large rocks is yellow and soft sand which is known as “Bai Tien” (Fairy’s beach) where is closely connected with a legend that the beach used to be the fairies’ bathing place in every afternoons.
The encounter between “green moss” and “rocks” is not very long and usually a month and sometimes two months in case of favorable weather. The best moment to behold the most beautiful green moss is a month later since the New Year started.  Moss in harmony with Rock creates a wonderful landscape like a paradise. Simply put, visitors and paparazzi from all directions have converged in Co Thach to behold and hunt for the extremely precious moment of the nature. Also, many spousal couples choose the destination for their springtime wedding albums and celebrations.
