Beautiful west-facing golden limestone wall in Lan Ha Bay. Overlooks Tiger and Moody beaches and limestone karsts reaching out to sea.

Getting There 

Arrange a basket boat from Ben Beoh (~30min), easily arranged through Asia Outdoors. High tide approach is on the right and a kayak tie-up spot marks the start to Coalition of the Willing. Low tide approach is further left on a sharp slab.
