Cat Ba Emerald Beach

How to get


It is about 2 kilometers away from Cat Ba town, on the way to the Cat Ba jungle.

The best way to get to Cat Ba Emeral Beach is by motorbike, as the electric buggies don’t venture out there. One can easily rent a motorbike anywhere for a few bucks a day. You just get out of the town, heading west untill pass the high school, looking at the leftside you will see a banner of Cat Ba Emerald, and easy follow the main road until you see the welcome arch below: Cat Ba Emerald Beach

Bus to cat ba

About three and haft hours transportation from Hanoi to Cat ba island, a trip requiring bus, a SPEED BOAT (NOT FERRY) and a minivan, Cat Ba turned out to be the best way to see the bay. Or not quite: it sits on Lan Ha Bay, the southern part of Halong bay, and is a ruggedly beautiful island in its own right.

On the speed boat

Rugged, craggy and jungle-clad Cat Ba, the largest island in Halong Bay, has experienced a tourism surge in recent years. The central hub of Cat Ba Town is now framed by a chain of low-rise concrete hotels along its once-lovely bay, but the rest of the island is largely untouched and as wild as ever. With idyllic Lan Ha Bay just offshore you’ll soon overlook Cat Ba Town’s overdevelopment.
