On a rocky outcrop, two large boulders bumped into each other as if the birds were lovingly caring for one another, forgetting the flow of time. Hon Cau and Dam Trau Beach were derived from an ancient legend, namely as the love story of a couple who loved each other but cannot get married because they are half-siblings.

Frustrated by the unlucky love, Cau left home for an island far more than ten miles to seclusion until his death, where he died suddenly sprouting a row of green beetles all year round. Day by day, the girl named Trau went to the cliff where they used to date before and waited. When she learned the truth, she was too desperate and had drown herself, the place where she passed away is called Dam Trau.
