3 days


Visit our blog



Escape from crowds for a spectacular cruise, glide past the soaring karst peaks of Halong Bay aboard a sailing junk boat. Take a dip in the emerald waters, explore caves and laze the day away on a pristine island beach hut and a beach fire barbecue feast with a peaceful ocean atmosphere.

This short trip is the perfect add-on to any adventure in Vietnam - whisking you from World Heritage Halong Bay to the secluded island resort of
Ocean Beach. Jump on board the junk and sail past thousands of limestone islands rising dramatically out of the gem-green waters of the Gulf of Tonkin, dive into the water or discover secret caves in a kayak...Spending your time here feasting on the superb cuisine served by the Vietnamese hosts, soaking up the tropical atmosphere. As you relax on a bamboo chair, sipping a cocktail in the waterside bar watching the magical sunset over the ocean, you won't want to leave.



Day 1 Halong Bay - Catba Island
After being collected around 8.00 am, you set off for Halong Bay - the drive takes about 3 hours. En route, you stop at the Sao Dao Centre run for and by handicapped children. Upon arrival at Halong Bay, you board the sailing junk. After you settle in, the cruise begins around majestic Halong Bay, and a sumptuous lunch is served on board. After lunch, you will have a chance to visit two most beautiful caves- Thien Cung cave or the Palace Of Heaven Grotto and Dau Go Cave or Wooden Stake Grotto and we take a look at the Floating Village of the fisherman and the Fighting cocks. Then Keep sailing towards Cat Ba Island. Arrive in Cat Ba Island at 5.30, you are ferried to Ocean Beach, a laid back beach resort. Rest of the day is free for leisure. We enjoy seafood dinner & spend the night in the bungalow.

Day 2
Ocean Beach Resort
Today is a free day to chill out and relax. Ocean Beach Resort is a 'get-away-from it all' hideaway about 3km from the main Catba island. Away from the noise and activity of the mainland here you can enjoy complete rest and relaxation. Development on the island has been limited to one lovely little resort, so it easily retains the feel of a real island hideaway. It's a wonderfully peaceful place to wander, or find a quiet spot on the beach to relax and swim in the warm waters. Being the only building on an isolated island, the resort is designed to be unobtrusive and ecologically-friendly. It's small and basic but exclusive and comfortable. For your entertainment you can enjoy some resort activities such as swimming, kayaking, volleyball or just relax on the white sandy beach in front of your bungalow. For those who are interested, there is also the opportunity to do a spot of night fishing

Spending your time here feasting on the superb cuisine served by the Vietnamese hosts, soaking up the tropical atmosphere. As you relax on a bamboo chair, sipping a cocktail in the waterside bar watching the magical sunset over the ocean, you won't want to leave.

Day 3 Catba - Hai Phong - Ha Noi
The Ocean Beach Resort staff will take care of your transfer from the resort to Catba island where you can take a walk and have a look at this beautiful island before boarding a hydrofoil for the sea port city of Hai Phong. Here we transfer to our vehicle for a 2-hour journey back to Hanoi.
