Have you ever envisioned Halong Bay without the crowds? It’s not just a fantasy; you can live the experience at Cat Ba Island. Most of the tours in Cat Ba are centered on Lan Ha Bay, which is lesser swarmed, relatively pristine and has splendid sandy beaches. Cat Ba National Park is yet another priceless jewel, which is literally covered up with dense forests.

About half of the total area of Cat Ba island along with 90 sq Km of the surrounding waters was sanctioned as national park in the 1986, with a motive of preserving the ecological systems of the island: lush green forest on the hills, marshlands at the foot of the hills, coastal swamps, freshwater ponds and sublime coral reefs. The major part of the coastline is marked with rocky cliffs, but there are various sandy shores as well as small, picturesque fishing villages are small coves. Lakes, cascades and caves blemish the imposing limestone hills. Lan Ha Bay, surrounding the southern waters off cat Ba, is dotted by hundreds of green-clad limestone islands with several forlorn beaches.
