In terms of geological values, Ly Son - Binh Chau sea volcanic cliffs and adjacent areas have many types of rocks representing different spraying regimes withiin the period of 13 million years, even in many proposed areas, there are many types of rocks that exist for billions of years. The ecology, sea and mountainous areas in the region have high biodiversity with many species of plants and animals.

At the talk, Setsuya Nakada, a member of the Global Geopark Network Advisory Board, highly valued the prospect of the geological park and said that the units needed to have effective structure, organization, management to develop operational plans for the development of geological park towards the benefits of local communities. Thus, it involves the active participation of local communities for the conservation and promotion of heritage values.
