If you travel to Binh Thuan – Co Thach beach after the Lunar New Year. Especially around February and March every year. It’s time Co Thach beach is covered with green moss. This is also the time when paparazzi rush to search for large rocks draped in a green moss coat and gradually turn yellow when the sun shines brightly. So this time is also known as “moss hunting season” for photographer.
However, not everyone who comes here is lucky enough to capture the best moss. Because it depends on the tide. Mosses only appear when the tide has receded. If the estimate is too large, it will be difficult to capture water. The moss will be dry and not green.
Paparazzi share the secret to owning unique and standard photos. Especially when the sun goes down, or when the sun has just dawned because the beach of Binh Thuan has many rock floors, and it is the place to rise. Going to the beach should catch the sunny season earlier than other seas, so the moss here formed earlier and more beautiful than other seas.
