Located to the east of Cat Ba Island, Lan Ha Bay covers an area of more than 7,000 ha of which 5,400 ha is under the management of Cat Ba National Park.
Lan Ha Bay - just the exquisite name alone has been pulling a large number of travelers near and far. In reality, regardless of the administrative boundary, Lan Ha Bay is part of the complex of Ha Long Bay with around 400 islets. But unlike the neighboring Bay of Ha Long, Lan Ha Bay has long been famed for its exclusive scenery with an intensive concentration of pristine limestone mountains by which the sea surface is partitioned into smaller bays and gulfs. The bay is home to hundreds of mounts of which forms and beauty are completely different depending on travelers' imagination: Guoc islet (Wooden Shoe islet), Doi islet (Bat grotto), etc.
The bay has 139 beautiful, small and pristine sandy beaches, many of which lie between two stone mountains. Just imagine that after a day long exploration of caves and grottoes, you will feel entirely relaxed bathing the azure-blue water of the beach or lying on the white sandy beach.
At night, you will be lured by the magnificent and splendid scenery of the bay and it will be an unforgettable experience to overnight the bay with gentle breeze wind and the slightly salty air from the forest on the stone mount. Your trip will by much more enjoyable with a kayaking amidst the bay and fishing.
Lan Ha Bay has become an indispensable destination thanks to its unspoiled and magnificent natural beauty. Just 30 minutes on boat from Cat Ba Island, you will be charmed by the breath taking view of the bay and soon you will forget all the stresses of a busy life. Wandering on the azure-blue beach, breathing in the air-filled breeze and enjoying the tropical sunlight, your trip to Lan Ha Bay will surely be a long lasting memory of your life.
