At the end of the 19th century, a French captain-officer named Varella discovered and recognized the importance of this land cape on the map of the international shipping, therefore, the French people called it Cap Varella. In 1890, the French built the light-house on the purpose of giving directions for the boats and ships operating in Vung Ro bay. After the wars, the light-house was ruined. In 1995, the light-house was restored and again put into operation. This is one of the eight light-houses of more than 100 years old among the total of 79 light-houses operating in Vietnam; it is also the light-house situated the nearest to the international territorial waters.
