O LOAN LAGOON

O Loan (Ô loan), a brackish water lagoon which is right at the end of Quan Cau (Quán Cau) pass, is very near the national highway 1A. It is 22-km away from Tuy Hoa (Tuy Hòa) city. This is the famous place for its historical movement named Can Vuong (Cần Vương) in Phu Yen (Phú Yên) province.

The sea falls into sleep on entering O Loan lagoon
Visiting O Loan, nothing is more marvelous than going on a boat, watching the rippling waves and the beautiful green shapes of hills besides sugar cane fields in the morning while sitting around a coal cooking fire and grilling the red oysters. When red oysters are done to a turn, tourists can enjoy the dish with a dipping sauce of salt, pepper and lemon juice, spicy vegetables, grilled girdle cake and wine.
Red oysters can be grilled, boiled or steamed but grill is the most simple and delicious way. Although fellow dinners can enjoy various dishes from the red oyster such red oyster rice soup, stir-fried red oyster and more, the dish is at its best when eating on the water. Another choice is sitting beside the lagoon bank, drinking wine, enjoying seafood and singing the poems of Phu Yen people.
