Bomb Crater bar
The Bomb Crater Bar opened in June 2016 & is located right on the Son river, just 3km from Phong Nha Village (Son Trach) on the Old French Highway.
Cold drinks and great service make this the perfect place to stop along the road between Phong Nha and the Bong Lai Valley, if you are out on a cycle ride or just looking for a cold drink, a place to relax or somewhere to watch the sunset.
The land that the bar is built on housed a fuel depot during the American war and because of this it was heavily bombed, including a 2000lb bomb that created the crater that gives the place its name. There are also 2 similar bomb craters on the land next door.
Please bare in mind Bomb Crater Bar is closed between Late September – Early November as this is flood season.
