Top 5 Halong Bay islands

Tuan Chau Island

Tuan Chau Island

Tuan Chau Island

Situated 2 kilometres from Halong Centre, Tuan Chau Island is a gift from nature with beautiful mountains and beaches. The white, sandy beach stretches for more than 6 kilometres, and is fringed with 200 hectares of green pine forest. To the south-west is Tuan Chau International Port, with total dock length of 7 kilometres, a depth of up to 17 metres and a width of 300 to 800 metres width. The port is a safe and modern marina, with capacity to harbour more than 1,000 ships at a time.

Tuan Chau is on top of tourist attractions in Halong Bay. With a wide range of hotels, resorts, restaurants, and entertainment venues, visitors can enjoy holidays, from luxury overnight cruising to casual day trips to other areas of Halong Bay.

Ti Top Island

Ti Top Island

Ti Top Island

Located in the heart of Halong Bay, and only 8 kilometers south-east of Bai Chay Harbour, Ti Top Island (or Titov Island as it is also known) is one of the most popular destinations for both international and domestic visitors to Halong Bay. The island was named after Russian cosmonaut Gherman Titov, who visited President Ho Chi Minh there in 1962.

Ti Top Island is blessed with a delightfully sheltered beach ideal for a range of water sports and activities, as well as access to restaurants, cafes, bars and souvenir shops. A few hundred steep steps lead to the top of the island and stunning 360° panoramic views of Halong Bay. A visit to Ti Top Island can be as active or relaxed as our Paradise guests would like.

Soi Sim Island

Soi Sim Island

Soi Sim Island

Found in the south-west of Halong Bay, some 10 kilometres from Tuan Chau Port, Soi Sim Island is one of Halong Bay’s hidden gems and unique treasures. Its name is derived the rose myrtle (“sim” in Vietnamese) which was ubiquitous across the island.

Unlike Halong Bay’s other main islands, the landscape on Soi Sim Island has a wild beauty all of its own. The secluded beach is in pristine condition, sheltered from the elements by rolling hills and steep cliffs that greet the sea. Lush, green vegetation adds a mysterious vibe, as if Mother Nature is protecting her island children from intruders.

Bo Hon Island

Bo Hon Island

Situated in the center of Halong Bay, Bo Hon Island (or Soapberry Tree Island) is one of the largest islands in the area, and amazes visitors with its gorgeous scenery. Grottoes and caves that are thousands of years old, including Sung Sot Cave, Trinh Nu Cave and Luon Cave are just waiting to be explored.

The island is famous for its concentration of mountains and cliffs, which together for a giant citadel wall. Below, the sea rolls in gentle, green waves to lap the sandy, white beach. The diverse animal and plant life, such as deer, monkeys and chamois have made the island their home and have thrived in the tropical habitat.

Rang Dua Island

Rang Dua Island

Rang Dua Island

Located in the north-east side Halong Bay, 5 kilometres from Cua Van Fishing Village, Rang Dua Island (Coconut Tree Island) is still has a pristine and untouched beauty. Legend has it that coconuts did not grow naturally on the islands and were brought there by its first inhabitants. Hundreds, if not thousands, of years later, the island is covered with coconut trees, and hence its name: rang dua.

Under the warm Halong sun and tropical climate, the coconut trees thrive and provide a living path to the shore of the island. The island seems somewhat isolated, but supports local families in the nearby fishing village. There is a good underground freshwater supply thanks to a large mountainous lake.
