Hit the beach

Bay will always come with the beach. Because of a lack of awareness to protect the environment, the beach in Ha Long Bay is not too beautiful and clear. However, sunbathing on the sand while admiring the spectacular view over the bay is not a bad idea. The suggestion is hitting remarkable beaches such as Tuan Chau, Tiptop, Ba Trai Dao, and Ngoc Vung which located in small islands scattering around the bay.
