Cruise from Cat Ba island to Monkey island. It is one of many islands where you can stop and swim, although there is an entrance fee to the island. There is an uphill path for monkey viewing, which we did not take (my friend and I are not really into monkeys).
We arrived at the beach rather late, and most of the tourists had gone. The cleaners were cleaning up the beach, and no one really bothered us. Dead corals are scattered over the beach and watching the sun set behing the nearby range of islets as we swam was wonderful. On board, keep still and you can see fish through the clear water.

There is great rock climbing on Cat Ba Island. Check out SloPony Adventures - I booked with them and had a great time!

We saw these ugly chickens at Cat Co beach....Of course hearing about the Sars we avoided the birds.
Cat Co beach.
Cat Ba has two nice beaches called Cat Co 1 and 2. They are located 1 kilometer southeast of town. We arrived early and were the only humans on the beach (besides some ugly chickens)...
