Ba Trai Dao beach (3
Peaches beach) is situated about 22 km from Bai Chay
tourism wharf to the Southeast, nearby Cat Ba island.
This is a gorgeous beach possessing unspoilt beauty and
poetic landscapes. The place is named Ba Trai Dao
because it has 3 soft sandbanks in form of an arch
embracing entirely peach-shaped mountains.
Three peaches are three small mountains of about over 20
m high which look like three fairy peaches from the
distance. This destination is attached with a romantic
love story between a good beautiful youngest fairy and a
poor fisherman. Because they lived in two different
worlds, the fairy stole three peaches of his father
(Jade Emperor) for her lovers with a hope that they will
live together forever. However, Jade Emperor knew this.
He turned three beaches into three rocky mountains and
forced the fairy to come back to the heaven.
Ba Trai Dao beach is extremely beautiful with find
sands, clear and clean water. On sunny day, visitors
could see to the bottom. Compared to other beaches in Ha
Long Bay, Ba Trai Dao beach is shallower,safer and more
airtight. This is because it is surrounded by rock
islands. Particularly, the cliffs above the beach have
strange shape which is a perfect background for tourists
to get impressive photos… More than that, on the
mountain grows various plant species with radiant color,
creating an animated landscape. Still, not all the time
could tourists admire and swim in the beach. When the
tide is high, it will drown the whole beach and that is
why your time at the beach is limited about 2-3
hours/per day. Therefore, before going to the beach, you
should survey tide tables if you want to swim in the
