Located to the south of
Halong Bay and 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 travellers from near and far.
In reality, regardless of the administrative boundary,
Lan Ha Bay is part of the complex of Halong Bay with
around 400 islets. But unlike its famous neighbour, Lan
Ha Bay has long been famed for its exclusive scenery
with an intense 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 travellers' 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 long day of exploration of
caves and grottoes, you will feel entirely relaxed
bathing the azure-blue waters of Halong or lying on the
white sandy beaches.
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 your busy life.
Wandering on the azure-blue beach, breathing in the
ocean breeze and enjoying the tropical sunlight, along
with a kayaking trip and maybe even some fishing, your
trip to Lan Ha Bay will surely be a long lasting memory.
