Best Beaches in Ha Long Bay
With its stunning karst landscape as a backdrop and a cool, emerald sea, Ha Long Bay is a paradise on earth for beach lovers. Pristine, sandy beaches with gently lapping waves can be found on deserted islets, as well as the more popular islands like Tuan Chau and Cat Ba, where there are a multitude of water sports and activities to indulge in. But where are some of the best beaches in Ha Long Bay?
A sheltered, crescent shaped beach well-liked by tourists because of its amenities, Ti Top Island is often on the cruise ship itinerary. Travellers can take the stairs to the top of the island for stunning views of the bay before taking a dip in the ocean. This beach is well equipped with a bar, swimming costumes and a shower, and also has a lifeguard on patrol.
Located 12km west of Ha Long City and close to Ti Top Island, Soi Sim is quieter and more peaceful than its neighbour. Like Ti Top, visitors can climb to the top of the island - it has two mountains, each 100m high - but unlike Ti Top, there are two beaches to choose from. Swim, fish, dive or just relax in the sun. All are perfect options for a perfect day on Ha Long Bay!
The 3km stretch of beach on Ngoc Vung Island is still relatively untouched because of its location, which is some 34 km south east of the tourist wharf. An ancient quay, built in the 11th century, can still be found on the island. After a day of sunbathing or swimming, visitors can feast on freshly caught seafood, cooked to perfection.
Although an artificial beach, Tuan Chau competes well on amenities because it is Ha Long Bay’s tourist hub. Visitors to the island can enjoy cocktails on the beach, and access to water activities like kayaking, surfing or diving. When sun, surf and sand becomes too much, tourists can go camping, hiking and climbing, take in a show, or enjoy some retail therapy or pampering at a day spa.
