Halong Bay islands and islets

 

 

Ba Trai Dao Islet (Three Peaches) 
This island consists of three small mountains with the height of 23 m, seen from afar, resemble three peaches .
The island connects to a legend of about the romantic love between a youngest fairy who was very pretty with a young and poor fisherman. Because of feeling in love with him, she stole three peaches from Heaven for him, that if he ate, would give him eternal life, allowing them to live together forever. The King of the Heavens discovered the robbery and turned the peaches into three stone islands. Chastised, the young fairy had to return.
Today, Ba Trai Dao is a famous tourist attraction with three nice fairy beaches, romantic landscape. It is 22 km from south north of Bai Chay Tourist Wharf.

But Islet (Pen)
Some 30-minute boating away from the Con Coc Islet, on the way to the Ba Trai Dao Island, visitors see a pen bobbing (But Islet) in the seawaters. This constitutes a monument of knowledge Mother Dragon wanted to pass down to the present-day generations. 
Lying adjacent to the Pen Islet is a small attractive beach. Tourists can anchor there to take a bath.

(Ga Choi Islet) Fighting Cocks
Fighting Cocks is situated on the south-west side of Ha Long Bay, 5 km from the tourist wharf near to Incense Burner Islet. In a somewhat large expanse of open sea, the island seems to grow up from the bottom of the deep emerald waters. At sunset, the island with the height of over 10 m is bright red and in a somewhat tottery position. Their tiny legs support heavy bodies, and it appears that one strong wave could throw the two stone blocks into the sea. However, hundreds of millions of years have passed, and the Fighting Cocks is still there. The image of the island is the logo of Ha Long Bay.

Con Coc Islet (Toad)
Con Coc or Toad Islet is one of the most exquisite works nature has presented Ha Long. Just imagine, an 8-meter-tall toad sitting to wait for rain amidst the vastness of the sea. The Toad Islet lies in the southeast of Ha Long Bay, 17 km away from the tourist boat wharf.

Cho Da Islet (Stone Dog)
In the itinerary of Thien Cung - Dau Go - Titov, after visiting Thien Cung and Đau Go, one needs 10 minutes boating to the Cho Đa Islet or Stone Dog Islet. Some 8 m up the islet one can figure out a piece of stone in the shape of a dog sitting with its back to the sea, standing guard for the safety of seagoing boats for millions of years.

Dau Nguoi Islet (Man's Head)
From a far, you can see a 25-meter islet, which reminds us of a huge Egyptian head with a big nose. Its chin lies close to the sea surface. Many people associate it with the image of the Egyptian Sphinx. The Dau Nguoi Islet in Ha Long Bay, a masterpiece of nature, has its own poetic beauty as it lies amidst seawaters. The islet lies near Luon Cave, 13 km away from the tourist wharf.

Dinh Huong Islet (Incense Burner)
In the itinerary of Thien Cung - Dau Go - Titov, one finds Dinh Huong Islet or Lu Huong (Incense Burner Islet) to the southwest of Dau Go Island. Passing the Cho Đa (Stone Dog) Islet, one sees an imposing stone slab resting on two other small stones stands blocked the way. The stone slab resembles a huge incense burner, which lies in the middle of the sea as a holy object to worship the Sky and Earth.

Mat Quy Islet (Monster Head)
Boating past the Am Islet some 20 minutes, we see Mat Quy Islet or Monster Head Islet, which protrudes about 30-35 m from the waters of Bai Tu Long Bay. Nature has carved the rock in the shape of a monster head, with a rough big nose standing out from a distorted face. From whatever angle, one still find it horrible.

Ngon Tay Islet (Finger)
On the way to Titov Island, visitors see a stone rock resembling a thump jutting out of the sea. Nature has put the Ngon Tay (Finger) Islet here as a reminder of many interesting extras in the discovery of Ha Long.
