Located to the south of Halong Bay and east of Cat Ba Island, Lan Ha Bay has long been famed for its unspoiled and magnificent natural beauty and its intense concentration of pristine limestone mountains, which partition the open sea into smaller bays and gulfs.
The Bay covers an area of more than 7,000 ha of which 5,400 ha is under the management of Cat Ba National Park. The waters here are home to hundreds of species of fish and marine life. Larger marine animals in the area include seals and even three species of dolphin.
It features 139 beautiful, small and pristine sandy beaches, many of which lie between stone mountains. Indeed, on the first day of your cruise, you will have a chance to relax on one of them; the white sandy beach of Ho Ba Ham islets, where you can also swim and kayak in the azure-blue water off the Beach, supervised by our ship’s crew.
On leaving the Beach, we will pass one of Lan Ha Bay’s few fishing villages, Cua Van, observing how the locals live in this remote Bay.
