Scenic landscape of Hon Chong Promontory
A game of giants
Chong Promontory (Husband Promontory) is a huge multishaped stone complex in piles running from the high coast down to the beach. From afar, it looks like the work of a giant, who carelessly put several massive rocks together in a childish game. And as if for a signature, there's a gargantuan hand print on the massive boulder balanced at the tip of the promontory.
And local lengends
According to local legend, a drunken giant male fairy made it when he fell while spying a female fairy bathing nude at Bai Tien (Fairy Beach). They fell in love but the gods intervened, sending the male fairy away. The lovesick female fairy waited patiently for him to return, but after a very long time she lay down in sorrow and turned into Nui Co Tien (Fairy Mountain), which could be seen from Chong Promontory. Another legend claims when a giant man was sitting fishing there, a giant fish swallowed the bait and pulled him away. He tried to pull himself back with a fishing rod in hand, pressing the other hand against the massive rock leaving the easily-seen imprints.
