The Duong Dong Lights Jan 12, 2009
Believed to have been established in the 1930s, the Duong Dong Light on Phu Quoc Island off the coast of southern Vietnam is located on a rock outcrop at the mouth of the Duong Dong River and has a focal plane of 49 feet. The thirty foot cylindrical tower is painted with green and white horizontal bands. Its small lantern signals three white flashes every nine seconds to lead fishing boats into the small harbor of Duong Dong.


The tower is believed to be the rear range light. Just offshore, at the end of a nearby jetty, is the front range light which is much lower on a cylindrical tower painted with white and black horizontal bands. Little is written about these lights.

Also on the outcrop with the main tower is a simple keeper's house and a small pagoda. The site is open to the public but the tower itself is closed. The site provides great views of the Phu Quoc shore, harbor at Duong Dong, and of the anchored fishing fleet.
