Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
Venture off the tourist trail and uncover the breathtaking white beaches and limestone outcrops at Lan Ha Bay. This isolated bay doesn’t tend to receive many tourist boats, meaning you’ll be able to explore the beautiful area without the crowds. Geologically, the bay forms an extension of Halong Bay, with the 300 islands and rocks best explored by kayak, yacht, or boat tours. The bay teems with sea life; thousands of species of fish and molluscs call this area home, and you should also keep your eyes peeled for seals and dolphins. When you’ve finished exploring the islands, settle on one of the white sand beaches and enjoy the scenery. Make Lan Ha Bay a part of your Cat Ba vacation plans using our Cat Ba vacation planner.
