Nestled on the periphery of Vietnam’s fabulous Ha Long Bay, Cat Ba Island is the largest island in Halong Bay. About half of it is a dedicated national park, home to both marine life and mammals, including the endangered Cat Ba langur (also known as the golden-headed langur), civet cats and Oriental giant squirrels. Time is spent to go through rock archways and hidden tunnels to discover the natural beauty of the lagoons. Soak up the sun, take in the stunning views, enjoying squirrel dancing and monkey playing. Our kayak trips get you to places that most people will never see, at which you can enjoy swimming or snorkeling around secluded sandy beaches.
