Núi Nai Light Station Jan 27, 2015
The Nui Nai Light Station is located on a prominent cape 5 miles southwest from the port town of Ha Tien, Vietnam. The station was originally established in 1896 to guide ships into the Mekong Delta from the Gulf of Thailand at the Ha Tien River near the Cambodian border.


Its 16 meter square concrete tower with lantern and gallery rises from a 2-story keeper's house which is painted yellow with white trim. The light tower is painted gray. The light is active and from a focal plane 112 meters above sea-level provides two white flashes every 10 seconds.


The Nui Nai lighthouse is accessible by motorbike but the road and trail are extremely rough and the last hundred yards are by steep footpath. The grounds were open, however, the keeper's house and light tower were off-limits. The hill-top was too small to get a good view of the tower. The light is best viewed from the boats and ferries sailing out of Ha Tien for the popular island of Phu Quoc.

Probably a good thing that the best views are from the boats!
