Accordingly, this marine protected area only receives a maximum of 200 visitors on normal daysm 250 visitors during lunar new year festival and other national holidays. Particularly, on the occasion of the annual Cau Ngu festival, the management board will work with authorities of Tuy Phong district to welcome create favorable conditions, and ensure safety for fishermen from other localities to participate in the event.
