Moss season in Ly Son Island

QUANG NGAI – From the end of December to April, the rocks on Ly Son Island are covered with green moss hidden in the waves.

This season, along the embankments on Ly Son Island, the rocks near the shore are covered with green moss. In the morning, the moss color blends into the misty morning mist, the boats in the distance.

Mr. Nguyen Van Chi, a resident of Ly Son who has been far away from his hometown for a long time, came home to visit his house during Tet, and with his wife took pictures of moss to commemorate before returning to the mainland.

Waves fluttered along the coral reef with sparsely grown moss.

Green moss grows on yellow rocks in the early sunlight, next to it is the basket boat of fishermen caught near the shore.

Thanh Sang in Quang Ngai city with his girlfriend went to the island to play Tet, to Hang Cau to take pictures with moss.

Moss is densely covered under the cliffs of Cau cave.

Mr. Nguyen Tuan Thach and his wife (in Binh Khuong commune, Binh Son district) delight when swimming next to Cau cave, where there are many green moss.

Not only moss, visitors also take pictures with seaweed species washed ashore Ly Son.

Ly Son Island is about 30 minutes from mainland Quang Ngai province by speedboat, with unique geological and cultural heritages. As the hometown of Hoang Sa Squadron cum Bac Hai governor, this place preserves the history of sovereignty over the sea and islands of Vietnam.

Over the years, the island has attracted domestic and international tourists. Every New Year and New Year’s Day, visitors a day up to thousands of people. This year, due to the Covid-19 translation, the number of visitors decreased. Mr. Le Van Ninh, Vice Chairman of People’s Committee of Ly Son district, said that from the 28th to the 6th of the new year, the total number of tourists is only about 2,000.
