Update: 11:37 | 30/03/2022

Nestled next to the rugged cliffs, Go Co coastal village is blessed by Mother Nature with the typical natural beauty of Ly Son - Sa Huynh Geopark, which can be seen through pristine nature and the unique cultural vestiges of Sa Huynh Culture (1000 BC-AD 200).

The ancient village is located in Pho Thanh ward, Duc Pho town, about 60 km south of Quang Ngai city. While Sa Huynh beach is distinguished with romantic golden sand, Go Co is isolated in a valley surrounded by layers of granite aged millions of years old with its back leaning against the mountain and facing towards the sea.

Go Co villagers earn a living from inshore fishing and farming. A community-based tourism cooperative since 2019, which involves shareholders from businesses, the community, state agencies and the local administration.

The cooperative aims to promote the image and value of the land, with the focus on the Go Co Geo-Park, and improves the lives of local villagers.

The staff of the cooperative’s service team are carefully selected. They must come from families having at least three generations that have lived in the village, who have developed strong attachments and had enough understanding about the land to advertise the village to visitors.

Although Go Co is just a small village covering an area of only about 105 hectares, it offers many authentic and attractive experiences for visitors. Travellers can explore the daily life of villagers by rowing a bamboo boat to admire the sunrise, visit the rock tunnel or go to the pristine golden sands.
