Island
Relax on the beach at Monkey Island, a private island with scenic views. If you get tired of swimming, you can climb the island's hill for expansive views of the surroundings. Grab a meal at the beach bar and avoid bringing your own food and leaving valuables out in the open, as the monkeys often steal food and other items from visitors, and can become aggressive if stopped. With our online itinerary creator, Cat Ba attractions like Monkey Island can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
